League defence starts with win

Debbie Sparham started her captaincy against Harling Unicorns who were the first visitors of the Breckland league season and came away with a hard fought two points. Mary Fisher, John Jeffery and Jon Sparham beat G. Messent, K. Messent and D. Braham 27-8. The scoreline did not really reflect the match as Harling produced a spirited performance with their lead more often than not applying early pressure. Jon played well to thwart the Harling danger and on a number of occasions was facing dropping two's and three's but turned the ends around. Five shots on end eight gave Wymondham a 13-3 lead to which they finished the last end with as well. Judging on the Harling triples performance throughout they are unlikely to be beaten by that margin again. On mat 2 Hayley Osborne, Simon Warnes and Debbie Sparham lost 15-18 to L. Chilvers, N. Battley and R. Braham. The Wymondham triple were not "on it" throughout and lacked consistancy which in this match proved not enough in the end much to Harling's good play for the majority. Their lead again was much the better on the night and gave Harling chances throughout. Roger is always a danger at skip and took the majority of his chances. Two slack ends by Harling however gave Wymondham hope as they had led 15-14 with two ends remaining but in the end was not enough with too many loose ends costing the triple. The Harling triple deserved their win on the night. 

Second session saw B. Barker, J. Marshall and C. Mann beat V. Hester, C. Jones and M. Cunningham 22-12. Five shots on end three kept the Harling triple at arms length who played well and caused problems. Luckily enough not enough of the time though and with a more shots added the Wymondham triple ran out comfortable winners in the end. On mat 2 R. Steele, S. Easter and M. Barker beat Mo. Tarrant, J. Kendal and M. Tarrant 29-3. On paper this looked too close to call but Roger, Steve and Mel blew their opponents away with the biggest scoreline of the night by far and restricted the Harling triple to just three singles for a great performance.
