Five ArchesWhitland 51 Five Arches 95 (Five Arches 13pts Whitland 1)
30th May 2015

On rink 1 , Ashley, Dai, Tom and Ken battled out a draw against Dan Jenner. Leading by a slim margin at the halfway point, the Five Arches quartet slightly  lost their way in second half and some fine bowling by the Whitland rink enabled them to pick up 2 shots on the final end to tie the game at 16 shots apiece. However it was the remaining three rinks which provided all the excitement. Ben Simmons and his rink of Steve, Jonno and John provided most of the fireworks , with Ben producing some amazing saving bowls and the rest of rink playing superbly, they increased their narrow 2 shot lead at tea to run out comfortable winners by 27 shots to 16.  On the next rink, Simon, Neil, Peter and Kev played against Whitland's former Gold Cup winner Steve Reese and his rink, in a game evenly poised after 11 ends at 10 shots each, Simon and his men went into overdrive in the second half to completely outplay their opponents. They won 9 of the 10 ends, scoring 19 shots to 1 , to complete a fine victory by 29 shots to 11.  Finally Captain Ben and his rink also joined in the fun. Playing against last week's Rossiters Cup winners , Ben and his gang ran away in the first half to be leading by 13 shots to 1 after 8 ends, steady accumulation from there onwards ensured they also won  by a comfortable margin of 23 shots to 8. A fantastic performance against one of the best teams in the league on their home patch, this  must rank as one of the Five Arches' finest wins in the last ten years.
