Griffins improvement clear to see

Harling Griffins rise from a team in the 2014/15 season that failed to register a single win that season is now a far cry based on performances like last night. They are well on the way to improving on last seasons points tally as well and were well worth the four points they won last night. The frist session saw Pat Saunders, Steve Easter and Jon Sparham beat B. Murphy, P. Hyam and C. Hayman 24-4. This was the only one sided result of the night as all three Wymondham players put in a good shift and conceded just three of the eighteen ends, this result also proved crucial to get the overall shots in the end. On mat 2 Billie Barker, Brian Saunders and Mark Linsdell lost 14-17 to C. Newman, V. Eater and G. Cody. At the halfway stage the match looked to be getting away from Wymondham with a five and brace dropped as they trailed 6-10. The triple were not consistant enough on the night and were made to pay by some good and fortunate play by the Griffins. The match was still poised going into the last end but Val Easter's last wood proved fatal in the end and their lead in the triple lead well from the front and deserved their win. Second session saw Mary Fisher, Laura Hawksworth and Chris Mann beat J. Deathridge, G. Hume and L. Deathridge 19-13. Chris had to play well early on while Mary and Laura came into the match, his play earned the triple an 11-0 lead after six ends and managed to quell a possible four/five shots by Griffins on end five. Two three's on ends nine and fifteen kept the Griffin triple at bay who recently won the Keith Banks trophy and showed glimpses of their quality late on picking up nine shots over the last five ends. On mat 2 Hayley Osborne, John Jeffery and Melvyn Barker lost 12-18 to V. Smith, J. Hayman and G. Hume. Mat 2 seemed to be the clubs undoing on the night as they failed to stop Harling's good play. After five ends the triple already faced an uphill task as they trailed 0-10 which forced John to go skip which after a while started to stem the tide and after fifteen ends trailed by only 11-16. The Griffin triple managed the game well with Jill Hayman and skip G. Hume and deserved the win in the end.
