Harling Unicorns take deserved two points from club

Harling Unicorns battled well last night to take a hard fought two points as they look to strengthen their grip on a top three place in the league. The first session saw M. Fisher, M. Barker and C. Mann beat L. Chilvers, N. Battley and R. Braham 25-10. Harling made the brighter start but somehow found themselves 7-1 down. Their play was rewarded when they came back to trail 7-5 but the next four ends all went Wymondham's way for a 15-5 lead which was seen through. Chris kept the triple in front with Melvyn and Mary both playing their part throughout. On mat 2 P. Saunders, L. Hawksworth and D. Sparham lost 12-15 to Mo. Tarrant, D. Braham and M. Tarrant. On reflection this was a deserved win for Harling who caught the Wymondham triple on an off night as the consistancy was lacking but this was partly due to the well balanced play from Mo, Daphne and Mick. Quite often Deb would find herself facing difficult heads to try and get a result from and often did not. Three shots on end thirteen proved the pivotal end and gave Harling an 8-12 lead which they held on to. 

Second session R. Steele, B. Saunders and M. Linsdell cruised to a 32-5 win against G. Messent, K. Hessent and E. Jones. As the result shows a good display from Roger, Brian and Mark who were 30-2 up with three ends remaining. On mat 2 B. Barker, J. Jeffery and J. Sparham beat V. Hester, C. Jones and N. Cunningham 21-16. Billie, John and Jon made a good start to lead 5-0 but after that a good battle ensued between the two triples. The Harling skip was causing damage like he had done in the past and when they picked up four shots on end eleven they lead for the first time at 10-11. However end fourteen proved fatal for the Harling triple after playing well they dropped five shots to give the home triple an 18-13 lead which they protected for another match that could of gone either way. This match proved that the Unicorns are very much contenders for a top three place in the league this season and if they keep playing this way then it will become reality.
