The Ringwood shield is the New Forest knockout tournament for the League teams of four triples- two home and two triples away. The winners being the team with the highest aggregate of shots. The result came in from the Home game that showed Downton to have an advantage of 11 shots. The Braeside leg were two ends behind this result and at that stage were four shots behind Braeside, so overall Downton’s lead was seven. This all changed in the next two ends. The Waters triple went down by five and the whole match was even with one end to play from the Colin Morris trip.Colin needed one shot on the last wood. All to no avail, Downton lost by two shots.
