Downton v Wilton (S&D)

 A lovely evening for a game of bowls, against fourth in the league Wilton. In the reverse fixture back in June, we won one rink & lost the match 49-54 (2pts-10 pts). Tonight we won two rinks, but lost the match 46-55 (4pts-8pts). Two very consistent results, just going the wrong way for us.
Rink 1 – Dibbie, Martin & Simon were well beaten 10-23, by a strong trio, very keen on long ends.
Rink 2 – David Fretwell, Geoff & John came back brilliantly from 0-9 down after four ends, to win an enthralling match 16-15 (nine ends each), winning the match with one shot on the last end.
Rink 3 – Paul Tanner, Dave Galpin & Ivan, road their luck (also winning nine ends), before coming through another tight encounter to win 20-17.
Overall score Downton 46 v 55 Wilton. Downton 4 points, Wilton 8 points.
Next match is away to Amesbury on 14th August. They are one place above us in the league, so if we want to try & get off the bottom, this really is a must win match!
