Five Arches 69 Pendine 96 ( Five Arches 4pts Pendine 10)
8th August 2015
In the blazing August sun, the Five Arches were hoping to get back to winning ways after last week's defeat to Whitland. First up, in front of the crowd on rink 1 , were Ben and his rink of John , Jon and Steve who continued their fine run of form this year. Starting slowly, at one stage 13 shots to 2 down, they played better and better as the game progressed. They picked up 13 shots through ends 14 to 18 to take command and ran out winners by 27 shots to 13. Next door on rink 2, Neil and his rink of Peter, Jimmy and Mike played a much more patient game , edging ahead by 4 shots at tea , they scored a well-timed 5 on the 18th end to open up a gap on the Pendine rink and eventually won by 21 shots to 15. Unfortunately for the Five Arches, the further away from the clubhouse , the worse we played. Captain Ben and his rink of Roger, Tony and Kevin struggled in the latter stages on rink 3. Trailing by only 4 at tea, they fell away in the second half and succumbed by 32 shots to 9. Out on rink 4, Ashley and his rink of Tom, David and Dai had a similar experience, only scoring on 6 of the 21 ends to lose by 29 shots to 12. A disappointing result for the Arches but we continue to have a fine season. Next up, away to Fishguard on Saturday.
