Bustards v Poole Park

The Poole Park team arrived in soggy Downton, fresh from their surprise victory over top of the league Swanage yesterday.
After a quick shower before the start, it stopped raining for the minimum 12 ends required to call a result & although it did then start to rain, we did manage to finish all 18 before it started to pour it down.
We were leading on both rinks after 12 ends & managed to keep that form going, to win both rinks. Despite the weather making the going good to soft, the green still played really well.
Rink 1 – Paul, Muriel & Cathy won 26-14 (19-7 after 12). A strong start 10 of 3 ends & a strong finish 7 of the last 3 ends, helped the cause, as does winning 11 ends.
Rink 2 – Rosemary, Alan & Ivan won 17-9 (10-7 after 12). Although this was a fairly low scoring match, our team won 13 ends & after losing the first end, were never behind again.
Overall score Bustards 43 v 23 Poole.
We are now only 5 points behind second placed Lyndhurst, so a good victory over them in next weeks home match, could see us move up a place. The following week we are away to Swanage & a convincing win over them, could see us go top!
