Club tighten grip at top of table

The clubs final league match of the year and half way point of this season sees them sitting pretty at the top of the Breckland league after an 8-2 home win against Connaught A, with nearest rivals Carleton Rode twenty one points behind with a game in hand. The first session saw R. Steele, B. Saunders and J. Pye beat Di. Quadling, B. Adcock and J. Li-Rocchi 22-10. The Connaught triple put up a good battle but found Roger, Brian and Jack in good form. After leading 11-2 after seven ends a brief reply saw Connaught trail by just four at 11-7 but a three and single gave them an eight shot lead with a third of the match remaining. Three shots picked up for Connaught again gave them hope but after this it was all Wymondham who reeled off five ends 7-0 to close out the match. On mat 2 J. Pinchen, M. Barker and C. Mann beat M. Parsons, D. Liles and S. Bragg 22-11. Janet Pinchen made her debut for the club this season with players sick or injured currently and made a positive impact while Melvyn had his best performance of the season so far. It was only Shelia Bragg for most of the times that kept the Connaught triple in it early on as half way through the match they trailed by just 9-7. In a freak scoring pattern, the home triple only scored either braces or three's with 5 x 2 and 4 x 3 scored over the eighteen ends. From ends 10 to 14 the damage was done with ten shots scored to just the single from Connaught giving Wymondham a 19-8 lead which the Connaught triple never recovered from. 

Second session saw B. Barker, M. Linsdell and D. Sparham beat D. Adcock, S. Parsons and B. Oatway 23-8. This was the best score of the night by Billie, Mark and Deb as after a tricky opening period which saw them only lead 8-6 after eight ends they then managed to keep the scoreboard ticking over in the closing ends. It was after leading 8-6 that the Connaught triple never scored again till the final end of the match as they saw the home triple rack up fifteen shots to lead 23-6. After last week's result and a change in personel this triple looked more solid and the scoreline showed it. On mat 2 M. Fisher, J. Jeffery and J. Sparham lost 11-20 to P. Hambling, J. Marshall and L. Fallows. This was a complete performance from the Connaught triple who concentrated throughout and thoroughly deserved the win. Ater leading 0-7 after five ends, it was already looking bleak from a Wymondham perspective. Mary had what can only be described as a disastrous game at lead as concentration was not there for the most and put massive pressure on John and Jon against this calibre of opponent to try and create something special nearly every end. Mary has performed well for most of this season so far but these performances still creep in now and again. Six shots dropped on end ten was the final nail in the coffin and the result could of been even worse if Jon had not gone to two in order to try and change things which did provide seven shots.
