Five Arches v Pembroke Dock Mariners

Five Arches 95 Pembroke Dock Mariners 57

treeAfter last week's defeat, the Five Arches needed to win this encounter at Sutton Street to maintain their push for second place in Division 2. Going into the game the Mariners were one point ahead of us so a victory was essential. Once again we were blessed with stunning sunshine and battle commenced in ideal circumstances.

On rink 2 in front of the rowdy Sunday afternoon crowd, Ashley and his rink of Ken, replacing the sidelined Dai Rees, Tony and Gwyn had a storming start, 16 shots to nil after 4 ends and 20 shots to 4 at tea. The Mariners quartet played extremely well after tea however the earlier deficit was always too much to pull back and the Five Arches foursome eased to a comfortable 29 - 14 win.

Rink 3, proving as treacherous as ever, saw Roy and his rink of Eamonn, Ken and Ben up against the wily Graham Bann. The Mariners rink had a strong start and led by 12 shots to 2 at tea. A rally saw the Five Arches team win 6 of the remaining 11 ends but eventually succumbed to a 23 to 13 defeat. Lee and his rink of Stuart, John and Ray were hoping to continue their winning ways of the previous week and this proved to be the case. A comfortable 12 shots to 3 at tea, they carried on out scoring their opponents to run out winners by 25 shots to 9.

Biggest win of the day was on rink 5, Tony and his rink of Clive, John and Carruthers winning Captain Dai Spencer, had a cautious start, 5-1 down after five ends, they scored 17 shots in the next five to lead by 18 shots to 5 at tea. An equally good second half saw them pull away to a handsome 28 - 11 victory. Overall a good victory to finish off our games at home. Next up is the last game of the season away to the Borderers at Whitland. We need to obtain 6 points to be mathematically assured of second place so another good performance is desirable. Finally many congratulations to Pendine for winning the Division 2 championship.
