16/5/19 v Castle Point A , home - won 7-0, 54-43
Brilliant win! Some big swings, and good skills from everyone. Sunshine , a cold wind and nice speed rinks, what more could one want!
Peter, Wyn and Val struggling and 6-14 down after end 13. Then winning every end, including two 4's to win 19-14 Amazing and very well done indeed by all, playing an all male opposition.
Barbara, Dave and Terry with a long run of winning ends up 14-5 at the 12th and managing to stave off an opposition fight back winning 16-14. Well played!
Jean, Jenny and Brian scored an early 5, then had a bad patch in the first half with the opposition scoring 8 shots in 3 ends but otherwise only making ones. Our strong play with medium length jacks in the early part of the second half provided sufficient margin to win 19-15.
9/5/19 - v South Benfleet B - won 4-3; 48-51
A great performance by all, with 5 ladies in the team! A very close match, with the overall result depending upon the last end of the last match. A heart lifting match and well done team indeed.
Jean, Jenny and Brian's match was within a shot or two for the whole game, but after 11-13 down on the 13th end, we won all the last 5 ends by one shot to win 16-13
Barbara, Dave and Terry off to a cracking start of 7 shots in 2 ends, but the opponents caught up and the match was always close, down by one shot on the 17th, we scored 2 on the last for a 18-17 win.
Norman, Wyn and Val 5-14 down at half way but rallied well to reach the last end just 4 down, and the overall match score level. Val played the right power shots to try to dislodge the Benfleet one shot but it just didn't work - 14-21 loss.
2/5/19 - v Runwell Hospital - lost 0-7; 27-70
Runwell were 2018 1st division champions so we expected a whopping and got one! Well done for trying and turning out when illness spread on the day causing late team changes.
Peter, Tony and Norman 4-9 at half way, lost 8-22
Jim, Wyn and Terry 4-12 at half way, final result 11-22
Jean, Jenny and Brian disastrous first half, 1-18 at 9; then matched opponents for the rest of the game, 8-26
