TENBY ARCHES LADIES 1 pt WHITLAND LADIES 5
17 May 2014
Tenby ladies anticipated a tough home fixture against Whitland last Saturday and were not disappointed, with the strong visiting team running out winners by 49 shots to 41. With the two ladies rinks playing alongside their male counterparts in a Carruthers fixture, the atmosphere was charged with a large crowd supporting their teams. The contrast in starts of the two Tenby rinks was totally opposite. Alison’s rink of Audrey, Meryl and Helen got off to a flyer and at six ends were 13 shots to nil up. Conversely, Julia’s rink of Margaret, Carol and Gerry were down 16 shots to nil. Things were going to change as losing rinks found their form. Alison’s rink looked to have the game won at 19 ends, with a four-shot lead, but Cally and her team fought back and on the last end were holding five shots to win the game. Alison stepped onto the mat needing something special to save her team from defeat. She was not to disappoint them, playing four of the five woods out and leaving a measure for the fifth. The measure went in Whitland’s favour, resulting in a 24-shot draw and a solitary point for the Arches ladies. Julia’s rink, after their poor start, picked up their game to get within three shots of Sue Evans’s team at one stage, only to finally lose by 17 shots to 25. The Arches ladies were obviously disappointed with this performance as they could not mirror the result of their male counterparts who had an excellent win in their Carruthers competition.
