Wet weather disrupts schedule

This week’s Outdoor Winter Bowls League sponsored by Pronto Plumbing was somewhat shorter than expected. 

The weather meant that the usual midweek Round Robin did not take place.

Saturday 30th of October saw Outsiders, Bits n Bobs and All But battle it out for the second time this season, with Seven Up also playing.

Bits n Bobs took on Outsiders for their first game and didn’t manage to field a full team. Winning a game was a real struggle for Bits n Bobs, and the only player to come close was Sue Collier who scored nineteen points against Ben Dugdale, a deserved match win to Outsiders.

On the green at the same time were Seven Up playing All But. All But secured four wins leaving Seven Up taking two. The closest scoring game was when Lil Smith from All But held Philippa Taylor to seventeen points.

The second half of the afternoon saw Outsiders taking on Seven Up, and the number of games won by each team was three. Jenny Moore from Outsiders had the closest scoring game against Kevin Quirk, Jenny kept Kevin to eighteen. Seven Up took the match on points.

Bits n Bobs had a better game against All But, managing to win four games, although the points worked in All Buts favour to square the match. There were two close games, both seeing victory to Bits n Bobs, they were Celia Joughin scoring nineteen against Geoff Collier and Willie Corkill scoring seventeen against Gill Morgan.

Seven Up 2 (97) All But 6 (110), Bits n Bobs 0 (63) Outsiders 8 (126), Outsiders 3 (97) Seven Up 5 (106), All But 4 (102) Bits n Bobs 4 (96).

Sunday’s games were abandoned after about half an hour due to a number of heavy downpours making the green unplayable. The fixtures have been rescheduled for Saturday, December 11.
