Reports Basildon "C"
Corringham & Fobbing C Home 24th August
A dreary and wet evening contrasted an friendly team. With the conditions as they were, a game of 12 ends was decided (as per the rules) however this did not work in our favour and we lost on all rinks despite some good play by Billericay. One "rogue" bowl can take a 5 bowl lead to a 1 bowl defeat as was witnessed more than once :-(
Team 1 lost 7-18 and lost 9 of the ends
Team 2 Lost 6 -10 while drawing on ends
Team 3 lost 8-10 while winning 7 of the 12 ends
Pitsea B 18th August Home
On our own green we succeeded in winning and securing 7 points
Team 1 : won 17-14
Team 2 Won 13-12
Team 3 Won 23-9
Corringham & Fobbing B 11th August Away
Perfect Bowls weather , a green in good condition and a friendly opposition saw Billericay gain 2 points from one rink win.
Billericay fought hard but the away skip on rink 3 was on top form and our skip could only reduce the deficit
Rink 1 lost 17-19 winning 8 ends
Rink 2 Won 19-17 winning 10 ends
Rink 3 Lost 11-22 winning 8 ends
Thurrock 3rd August Away
This was the first time we had played at Thurrock so we had no expectations of the rinks .
Following the previous day's rain we were met with a friendly team and a heavy green but in good condition.
Our experience from playing them at the beginning of the season told us we had a fight on our hands and fight we did.
Rink 1 lost 15-24
Rink 2 Won 13-12
Rink 3 drew 19-19 having been trailing 3-11 at end 7
So we gained 3 points away.. well done everyone, especially David Mersh who stepped up as skip

Rink 4 lost 9-33
Rink 5 lost 9-16

A beautiful evening and friendly opponents gave us hope for a good match. However the green had some peculiarities which influenced our bowls in not such a positive manner and we were beaten 2 rinks to one, gaining just 2 points.

Rink 3 Won 17-12 ( winning 10 ends)
