Swanage Dolphins v Bustards

The Bustards made the long trip South to face league leaders Swanage Dolphins. Both rinks had quite a lot of damage to them & when you added in the strong wind blowing straight across the green, it made for very tricky playing conditions.
Rink 1 – Paul, Muriel & Cathy made light work of this & had a cracking game, winning 13 ends in their 18-9 victory.
Rink 2 – Ivan, Alan & Geoff took 2 shots on the last end to level their match 17-17. Take out the two fours & a five against, this match would have been won comfortably, but in the end a draw was a fair result.
Overall score Downton 35 v 26 Swanage. Downton 5 points, Swanage 1 point.
Our next match is in two weeks time, away to Bournemouth Buffalos. Swanage visit second in the table Lyndhurst next Saturday & we wish them well in this title decider. We are now pretty much assured of finishing third with two matches left, which is a great achievement. Congratulations to all of the Bustards squad members.
