Castle v Tenby

Haverfordwest Castle 70 (0) Tenby 89 (14 pts)

Chandler RogersJointly sponsored by Layton and Company Solicitors and Chandler Rogers Estate Agents, the Tenby team travelled to Haverfordwest for another Pembrokeshire League Division One match. Uncharacteristically, the team were slow to start and led by only three shots at five ends. At 10 ends, Tenby held a slender one shot lead, before they took control of the match by the 15th end to lead by 16.

The lead decreased to 13 shots at 18 ends and finished with a winning margin of 19 shots, but more importantly a maximum 14 points. Peter Day’s rink of Cameron White, Mike Jackson and John Baggott were always in control against a strong Haverfordwest ‘skip’ in Barry Absalom and won by 24 shots to 17. Craig Guymer’s rink had an interesting game, to say the least, with multiple counts being gained and lost. In fact, at five ends there had been one count of four shots to the Tenby team, but the other four ends had seen a 3, 1, 4, 3 reversal and so they were behind 4-11.

Between ends six and 15, it seemed that order was restored and they restricted their opponents to single shots. A five on the 14th end saw the Tenby four lead 16-14. They exchanged single shots with their opponents and then, on the 17th end, a further dropped count of four shots to see them behind again, 17-19. Once again the sides exchanged single shots, until on the last end the Tenby foursome made five shots to win 24-20. What a game! Pat Currie’s rink was never in trouble in this match and, although the Haverfordwest four did make a spirited effort to win the rink, the Tenby four won by 18 shots to 15. Andrew Muskett’s match against David Summers was very similar to Craig Guymer’s in scoring patterns. At five ends all appeared in order as Andrew’s rink steadily went into a 4-2 lead.

The opposition rallied with a scoring sequence of 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, before Andrew took a four, but then dropped a threeshot count and then a single. At 14 ends, the Haverfordwest rink led 10-15, but the Tenby four took a six, followed by a two and a three, to move ahead of their opponents and at the close won by five shots. Once again, a very solid performance by the Tenby team, who picked up the vital 14 points to help them in their quest to retain the Pembrokeshire League.

Rink scores were as follows:
C. White, M. Jackson, J. Baggott, P. Day 24-17.
J. Richards, D. Spencer, J. Roberts, A. Muskett 23-18.
N. Dickinson, D. Silcox, J. Webb, P. Currie 18-15.
L. Rees, G. Hewitt, S. Williams, C. Guymer 24-20.

Brains Cup St Katherines v Five Arches

St Katherines  40 v Five Arches 155

Brains logoAn unusual game with a number of regulars missing, this final match in this years Brains Cup had nothing resting on it as we had already lost the previous two. However with the added fortification of a number of first team players we proceeded to Milford in a positive mood. Mike with a completely new rink of Doug, Ray and JB had a comfortable win, never behind and always in control they eased to a 32-16 win. Ashley with Dai, Tony and Gwyn were again never behind and also had a straight forward win by 34-13. Talented junior Ben Cloake took over skipping duties for the first time and like the proverbial duck led his team of Ken, John and Gerald to a comprehensive 39-7 win. Usually this would be more than enough for top rink however Tony ably supported by Eamonn, Ben and the ever improving JR had other ideas and won by a massive 50-4, possibly the highest single rink score in Five Arches history. Many thanks must go to the players who stepped in at the last moment to ensure we had a full team.

Pembroke Dock Mariners v Five Arches

Pembroke Dock Mariners  70 v Five Arches 79

tree Back to league action and a return to Pembroke Dock. The Mariners had beaten us in a close match earlier in the season, so hopefully revenge was on the cards. Ashley's rink of Dai, Tony and Gwyn returned to winning ways with a comfortable 25 -16 win. Lee with John, Ben and Ken played out their second successive 17-17 draw with the lead frequently changing hands in a close fought affair. Tony with Eamonn, Ben and Ray continued their fine form with a controlled 19-16 victory. However a disappointing defeat for Clive's rink of Ken, Mike and Roy who from a commanding 18-4 lead were pegged back by a determined Mariners rink who won the last eight ends to run out eventual winners by 21 to 18. Overall a very good 79 to 70 shot victory and a handy 11 points in our first away win of the season.

Brains Cup Five Arches v St Thomas

Five Arches 90 v St Thomas 53

Brains logo A disappointing end to the defence of the Brains Cup, with only a battling draw from Lee's rink of Ken, John and Ben to show for our nights work. Big defeats for the rinks skipped by Clive and Ashley ensured St Thomas had a comfortable victory by 90 shots to 53.
