First maximum win at Connaught A strengthens grip on league

Another historic moment was created for the club last night which has finally seen them take maximum points at Breckland rivals Connaught A, a feat that has not been acheivied by very few if not any. The first session saw B. Barker, J. Jeffery and J. Sparham beat M. Parsons, D. Liles and R. Harrison 15-10. For the majority of ends the Wymondham triple looked the more likely to take control of the match and over ends seven to ten picking up seven shots saw them lead 10-6. There were a couple of ends in the match were Connaught threatened to pick up big counts but Jon's last bowl saved the day twice as they only dropped singles. Although both sides scored nine ends a piece only a brace on the first end by Connaught was the only score over one they managed. On mat 2 R. Steele, B. Saunders and J. Pye beat B. Adcock, S. Parsons and B. Oatway 14-11. In a simmilar match Wymondham had the upper hand as the match wore on but only held a slim lead throughout as the scoreline shows. Both triples were inconsistent which made the match tight but the last six ends saw Wymondham pick up six shots to Connaught's three for a good hard fought win. 

Second session saw M. Fisher, M. Barker and C. Mann beat Di. Quadling, R. Taylor and J. Li-Rocchi 23-9. Mary had a very steady match at lead and was back to what she can play like when concentrating. This gave Mel and Chris license to play more freely and were in control of the match throughout leading 7-1 after five ends then 17-4 after eleven ends. On mat 2 P. Saunders, M. Linsdell and D. Sparham beat D. Quadling, J. Marshall and L. Fallows. A strong start by the Wymondham triple saw them lead 10-1 after nine ends but had seen some shots go against Connaught. Jack Marshall went skip to try and salvage the match but Pat, Mark and Deb played tightly and made it difficult and in the end ran out winners restricting Connaught to singles throughout.
