New forest League v Highcliffe A, 2nd May

Highcliffe A 77 shots, 6 points, Downton 64 shots 2points
The first League match on a dry but dismal evening. The green was soft and slow due to our rainfall over the last days and months. Two Rinks won and Two Rinks lost. The winning rink of Steve Allen, John James and Paul Tanner had a cagey game, with Highcliffe preferring long jacks and Downton shorter. When a long jack was cast into the ditch this worked in Downton’s favour. Going into the last end 3 up, they held on to win by one shot. The other winning trio of Nick, Lewis and Charles, had an extremely tight game where the last three ends were won to overcome Highcliffe by two shots. Unfortunately the rest of our team did not play so well and allowed Highcliffe A to win the match 77-64 and six points to 2. Nice game to start the season especially with the hot dogs afterwards.
