The club close on top two in league with 10-0 away win

Shropham 0 (41) v Wymondham 10 (95) - 08/12/2016

On mat 1 H. Stratton, M. Fisher and C. Mann beat T. Hewitson, R. Fulcher, T. Cullinane 19-12. Hayley and Mary combined well early on and again and gave good backup to Chris to lead 10-2 after six ends and further increased their lead after nine ends to 14-4. The Shropham triple came back into match late on scoring a 1,2,2 to trail by 16-12 but Chris steadied the triple to score a brace and single over the last two ends. A good performance from all three players but lost it towards the end a little.

On mat 2 B. Barker, B. Saunders and J. Pye beat B. Dawson, D. Brown and R. Broad 25-10. Another good start by Wymondham saw Billie, Brian and Jack lead 7-1 after four ends. The Shropham triple played well at times especially their skip who did a lot of damage at times and scored a single and three to trail 7-5, but Wymondham were too strong over the eighteen ends as a three and brace scored on ends seven and eight saw them open up a 12-5 lead and a 1,2,4,4 from ends twelve to fifteen killed the match off as they lead 24-7. All three players played well when needing to and combined well.

On mat 3 R. Steele, J. Jeffery and J. Sparham beat D. Green, G. Negus and M. Godbold 17-13. This was really the only match that looked in threat as after six ends Shropham lead 3-5. A good spell by Roger, John and Jon saw them pick up a 2,2,1,4,1 to lead 13-5 after eleven ends. Two three's picked up by Shropham put the game in the balance again as they trailed by just two at 11-13 with five ends to play. A brace and a single picked up straight after gave the Wymondham triple a five shot lead which was enough to see the game out as only a further two singles were dropped. Roger and John just about did enough but did rely on Jon to play some good shots at times.

On mat 4 P. Saunders, M. Barker and D. Sparham beat D. Frost, R. Vickers and M. Chapman 34-6. As the scoreline suggests this was a dominant performance from Pat, Melvyn and Deb as they only dropped four ends conceding two brace's and two singles while two five's over the three ends was the pick of the scores for them.

Although many would have predicted a 10-0 win before a bowl was bowled the club had just about a full strength team which has not been the case for many games so far this season. But after seven match's played the league is tight to call and makes for an interesting rest of the season.
