Championships – Mixed Fours results
The first of this year’s Championships was held on November 9th.(Umpire – Richard Good). The 16 entries played in 4 Round Robin groups with everyone playing 3 games of 7 ends. (Unfortunately, due to a late dropout due to sickness one group only had 2 RR games). The 4 group winners and the Next Best 4 then contested the QFinals with winners going into the SFinals.
In these, Francis Boatman, Neil Flynn, Jayne Rudd and Joanne Senior despatched Matthew Jackson, Brenda Benson and Les & Margaret Lambert 9-3 whilst Pat Lawry, Daniel Agar, Rose Haynes and Roger Green put paid to John Moss, Colin Welford, Rhona Worley and Eileen Duncalf 11-1.
The Final was close (as all Finals should be) and on the 7th end Francis and Co, were lying shot for a 11-11 draw with one wood yet to bowl, Francis decided that attempting to draw a 2nd was fraught with danger so opted to play out an extra end. This went to Pat and her team who therefore become this years Mixed Fours Champions.
