Club dent Griffins top four hopes

Both Harling clubs have enjoyed good campaigns so far and had occupied two of the top four places in the league but a 10-0 defeat last night and Tuesday night to Connaught A has left Harling Griffins in fifth place having now played a game more. The first session saw P. Saunders, L. Hawksworth and D. Sparham beat J. Deathridge, J. Hayman and G. Hume 18-10. Up till end eleven the score was 8-6 with both triples not consistant enough to take the match but in the later stages Wymondham took the initiative scoring three three's in the remaining seven ends while Harling had only scored on seven ends in the entire match. This was a good performance from all three ladies who grew into the match. On mat 2 M. Fisher, M. Linsdell and C. Mann beat V. Easter, G. Hume and S. Easter 29-14. A  comeback by the Harling triple saw them pick up seven shots over three ends to see them trail 14-11 but the remaining six ends saw the Wymondham triple amass fourteen shots to see them ease to victory. Mark was by far the most consistant player in the match playing a range of good attacking and drawing shots to break up any Harling play. 

Second session saw L. Swann, J. Jeffery and J. Sparham beat I. Smith, L. Deathridge and C. Hayman 22-10. This was a steady performance from all three Wymondham players who restricted Harling to scoring on six ends. A dropped five on end fourteen was the only blip in the match but had no real bearing on the outcome then. On mat 2 A. Jackson, B. Saunders and J. Pye beat C. Newman, V. Smith and G. Cody 21-15. The same mat produced another high scoring match as Harling pushed Wymondham partly due to inconsistant play. A dropped five and brace saw the home triple take a 10-12 lead at the half way stage but four crucial ends followed to see Wymondham regain control leading 19-12. Jack once again played solidly to keep his triple in it with the second half of the match seeing Harling only scoring on three ends. Andrew Jackson made a welcome rerurn to the club after a near two year absence.
