Five Arches 78 (10pts) Pembroke Dock 71 (4pts)
29th April 2017
After last week’s encouraging performance against Haverfordwest, we welcomed Pembroke Dock to Tenby on a cold April afternoon. With our new shirts dazzling the opposition , the Five Arches started brightly. On rink 1, Ashley, together with James and Mike and the Australia bound Jonno, hurried into an early lead, which they maintained through to half time to lead by 13 shots to 7. A storming second half including a count of 5 shots on the last end, granting a 30 shots to 13 victory. Webbie, Beano and the returning Turbo and Ken were up against it on rink 2. After a slow start , they trailed by 12 shots to 4 at tea. A tight second half ensured the Pembroke Dock quartet did not run away with the game. The end result a 20 shots to 9 victory for the Dock boys. Neil assisted by Steve, TP and John also had a slow start, 10 shots to nil down after 6 ends, however by tea they had pulled right back to be level. The Pembroke Dock rink pulled away slightly in the second half to gain a 23 shots to 15 victory.
Our dream team of Viv, Dave, Dai and Simon continued their serene progress on their favourite rink 4, starting like a train they led by 11 shots to 3 after 6 ends and by 17 shots to 7 after 12. After dropping a few shots in next couple of ends, they eased to a comfortable 23 shots to 15 win. A good win with a good finish over the last 2 or 3 ends across the board to gain the victory. We have a break for two weeks before the next game, in Saundersfoot on the 13th May.
