Connaught A end clubs winning league streak lasting over two years

It's been quite a while since the club can say it lost a Breckland league match (in fact it was the 4th October 2017 away to Banham) and it had to happen again some time but in the style of this match it will be disappointing in the way it actually happened. Both first session match's looked like going Wymondham's way with Pat Saunders, Steve Easter and Debbie Sparham 12-8 up after eleven ends against J. Squire, R. Taylor and B. Oatway. But their lead slipped away in the closing ends and three shots dropped on the last end saw Connaught take the win by one shot at 14-15. The other first session match went in similar fashion and wasn't helped when John Jeffery arrived late meaning the team selction had to be changed, Billie Barker, Andy Jackson and Jon Sparham also had a decent lead at 11-6 after eleven ends but again had a poor end to the match conceding nine shots over five ends to lose 11-15. The second session saw Roger Steele, John Jeffery and Mel Barker also lost 10-17 to D. Liles, S. Parsons and L. Fallows. Ends eight to twelve proved the deciding factor in which they dropped ten shots to trail 7-16. The other mat saw Hayley Osborne, Brian Saunders and Chris Mann having to claw back shots to save a damaging 8-2 defeat.The match started brightly as the Wymondham triple played well to lead 16-2 after nine ends. Their performance from there did dip but with the last ends being played on both mats the overall shots were secured by just one which could prove crucial come the end of the season.
