SEVENOAKS LADIES 8 PRINCE ARTHUR 2
97 SHOTS TO 93
The Ladies have done it again, yet another victory in a five-rink match against visitors Prince Arthur.
Clare Jolley, Dot Fuller, Anne Welch and Brenda Bennett had a ‘magic’ afternoon, everything going their way in a resounding 28-7 win. A 20-shot lead overall around the 15 end lulled the home team into a false sense of security. Prince Arthur were slowly closing the gap and tension was creeping in.
Sylvia Riley, skipping for a change instead of leading, performed extremely well in her side’s 23-15 win, despite dropping 5 shots on the 20th end. Ann Munro’s ladies dropped 10 shots over the last four ends to go down 21-26. The gap was closing. A 16-13 lead after 20 ends looked hopeful for victory but Margaret Elsdon’s team did not play a tight final end and it was left to Margaret with her final bowl to get her team out of the mire and ensure Sevenoaks scraped home 97-93.
