Kett's Park era finishes win big win

The first Breckland league match of the season at home marked the end of club playing it's home match's at Kett's Park. Connaught B will be the last visitng club to play at the venue and their memories of it will not be pleasant either as they succumbed to another 10-0 defeat. The first session saw Mary Fisher, Melvyn Barker and Chris Mann beat A. Marshall, J. Hazell and D. Flatt 30-8. The scoreline shows a one sided win but the home triples performance was far from polished and lacked consistancy throughout. It has to be noted that Connaught's lead Alan Marshall is now not the most agile and did well to his credit but it did put pressure on his triple at times. It was more a case of Connaught missing rather than Wymondham hitting which produced the gulf in scoreline. On mat 2 Billie Barker, John Jeffery and Jon Sparham beat T. Burt, J. Squire and P. King 42-7. This was a bruising scoreline from Billie, John and Jon who, for most the match, outplayed their oppositte number and raced into a 15-0 lead after just three ends. Ex Wymondham player Peter King at skip for Connaught had a tough match with little support at times but did well to try and limit the damage. 

Second session saw Pat Saunders, Laura Hawksworth and Debbie Sparham beat M. Eades, J. Barnes and J. Winup 22-5. In the early exhanges Laura and her opposite number had an entertaining encounter with both jostling for position which in the end Laura had gotten the better of as the home side went ahead after trailing 0-2 to then lead 10-2 after winning seven straight ends. Debbie had the edge over John at skip through most of the match as Pat grew stronger as the game wore on at lead. A flurry of shots from ends thirteen to seventeen gave Pat, Laura and Deb a deserved and healthy seventeen shot win. On mat 2 Hayley Osbourne, Steve Easter and Mark Linsdell beat M. Marlow, A. Rush and M. Minshull 29-12. Connaught made a bright start to lead 1-6 after three ends but the reply from Hayley, Steve and Mark was just what was expected as they scored 4,2,2,3 to take a commanding 12-6 lead. This was no doubt the best performing Connaught triple on the night and asked questions of Wymondham on numerous occasions but the home triple held firm and again finished strong to put a gloss on the result picking up eleven shots over the last four ends.
