Bustards v Bournemouth Beavers

I’d been warned that we have a ‘rook’ problem, so I turned up early to administer some TLC to the green. What a mess! However, after a good swish, both rinks looked ok & actually played really well.
Unbelievably, Bournemouth Beavers/Broncos could only field one team this weekend & they decided to send a strong team to play us, instead of travelling to runaway leaders Swanage Dolphins. Sadly for them, that proved to be a bad decision.
Rink 4 – Tony, Rod & Geoff W22-12. It took a few ends for the team to get going, but once they did, there was no stopping them. It was quite close until the 12th end, then we won 5 ends in a row scoring 10 shots & taking a commanding 22-10 lead. 12 ends won. Another excellent team performance.
Rink 3 – Lewis, Muriel & Ivan W18-12. It was 8-7 after 11 ends, then we scored a big 5. On the 16th end, we turned 1 down in to 3 up, which sealed the deal. Probably this teams best performance of the season.
Match score Bustards 40 v 24 Beavers. All 6 points to the Bustards for the 5th successive match. We are now comfortably in 2nd place in the league, behind runaway leaders Swanage Dolphins, who we visit next Saturday.
The team for this showdown remains unchanged.
