St Thomas v Five Arches

St Thomas 80 Five Arches 65

TreeAfter a lengthy break since our last game, almost three weeks, we travelled to Haverfordwest to take on St Thomas. Although the League title is beyond us, it was important to do well in the last three games to secure second place. Unfortunately we were denied one of our players shortly before we had to travel and therefore had to play with only fifteen.  The games against St Thomas are traditionally close, only six shots separated the teams at the beginning of the season. On rink 2 Roy, supported by Ken, Ken and Joe who stepped in to help us out after his Carruthers triumph the day before, were involved in a tight game until the 15th end. With the game evenly balanced the St Thomas quartet forged ahead winning 5 of the last 6 ends to run out winners by 25 to 14.

Rink 3 saw Tony and his triple of Mike and Clive up against a tricky rink and an "on fire" Peter Jenkins again the game was evenly poised until the 16th end where a loss of 6 shots proved decisive and the St Thomas pulled away to win by 23 shots to 8. Ashley and his rink of Dai, Tony and Gwyn were hoping to continue their winning ways from previous weeks, however a slow start saw them down by 10 shots to 3 down after 8 ends. A fine comeback was mounted winning 10 of the remaining 13 ends, they overwhelmed their opponents and eased to a 23-13 win.  Lee, ably supported by the returning Stuart, John and Ray had an explosive start, 11-1 up after 7 ends. In an evenly matched second half the St Thomas foursome fought back well and almost clinched the game on the final end, however Lee and his rink hung on to record a 20-19 victory. Another disappointing result for the Five Arches but with the next game on Sunday against the Pembroke Dock Mariners, which in effect will be a playoff for second place, all is not yet lost.
