Tenby Arches Ladies 4pts. St Issells 2pts.
23 April 2014
Tenby Arches Ladies started their long league season with a home game against local rivals St Issells. Tenby Ladies Captain Carol welcomed the visitors with the news that they would have to play the game with a lady short due to other commitments from the small Tenby squad. St Issells also had the same problem , so the match started with a player each short. Tenby Skip, Helen Baggott and her team were drawn on the outside rink, with the game very evenly matched up to the 16th end. By the end of 18th end, St Issells had edged into a 5 shot lead. Helen, Gerry and Meryl fought back well to hold three shots for the game until St Issells skip , Beryl Lewis, with her last wood drew the shot to win the rink for the visitors. On rink five, Julia King Thomas had a similar start to that of Helen, with the score tied at eight-all at 11 ends. Julia's rink of Carol, Lon and Liz then found some excellent form, with everyone contributing shots, and eased to a 13-shot win. Tenby Captain, Carol Lloyd, would like to extend a welcome to any local ladies to come along and see how thegame is played with a view to taking up the game of bowls.
