Reports Chelmsford "A"

Baddow B - Away 8th May

WIN  8-2

Great start to the season , Baddow werent expecting us to come out all guns blazing !!

Brian Jeff John and Dave A off to a good start but were pegged back to 10 all by end 10 . Falling behind briefly then surged on to a 26-16 win

Gary Jim Tony and Jon took control from the start only allowing Baddow to win 2 of the first 14 ends 21-3 at that point , however our true sporting nature shone through allowing them another 5 ends , then normal service was resumed with a 4 and a 5 . Final score 30-10

Mark Graham Winston and Mike S began well to be 11-4 ahead after 10 ends but the opposition plugged away to draw the match on the final end 17-17 . Due to a mixup with player registrations we were penalised 25 pct of our shots so it was recorded as a loss however a strong shot count elsewhere meant little damage was done .

Shot count 73 - 43


SWF Home 15th May

WIN 8-2

Gary Jim Tony and Jon in a repeat of the previous week romped away allowing SWF only 2 of the first 10 ends to be 19-4 ahead , again came the sympathy bowling followed by renewed vigour securing a 5 on the 20th to win 32-15

Mark Graham Winston and Mike S followed the same format also gaining a quick lead only to be pegged back midway to 11-8 . Some great bowling by Graham and we were off to the races again with a final 22-13

Brian Jeff Vic and David B scored a 5 on the 2nd end but a lean patch left them 8-14 behind by 11 . A mighty 6 restored their fortunes on 12  to level peggings and a very tight game of 1s ensued . 18 all at the 20th  . Last end went the way of SWF on the last wood so an 18-19 loss.

Shot Count 72-47


Lionmede Home 22nd May

WIN 8-2

Non-stop rain throughout couldnt prevent Gary from insisting on the full 21 ends ... If moses had been playing im sure the green would have parted down the centre !!!!!

Gary Jim Tony and Jon struggled from the start and were 10-2 behind at end 6 , despite holding most ends a deadly accurate opposition three and skip always managed to pinch it or cut it down . A bit of dunkirk spirit and 14-14 by the 15th  . 16-17 at 19 then a 4 to go in front for the first time and a final win 21-17

Mark Graham Andy and Vic stormed away to a 10-1 lead at end 8 then only winning 2 of the next 8 ends  to be 13-9 . Some good bowling all round and with Graham and Mark on good form a win 18-11. Andy Kings first ever league game an eye opener to the fact that bowls is not only played on a sunny afternoon and he acquitted himself well . Well done ..

Jeff John Winston and Dave A struggled against a strong opposition and were 3-15 down at end 7 . Across all rinks it looked like the first defeat this year however a dogged performance combined with a couple of 4's and things began to look better . With the overall at stake 11 points ahead on the other two rinks and 8 down here they won 4 of the last 5 ends and held for a 18-23 loss . No mean feat and guaranteed the 4 bonus points

Shot count 57-51

Writtle B Away 29th May

Catastrophic 0-10 Loss

No real explanation other than some tricky lines that Writtle exploited to full advantage and we just didnt have the edge this time

Gary Jim Tony and Jon a tight game 13 all at 16 but slipped at the end chasing shots to 21-13 loss

Brian John Andy and Dave A again nip and tuck only losing 24-20

Graham Mike Winston and David B struggled from the start only scoring on 6 ends to a 32-9 defeat

Shot count 42 - 77


Tillingham Away 5th Jun

WIN 8-2

One of the better greens we have played on and some fine sausages at the end set the stage for us to return to second place in the league table .

Gary Tony Winston and Jon 8-1 up after 5 failed to score for the next 6 to be 8-9 followed by an evenly balanced game 14-13 at 19 but 2 2s sealed the deal to 18-13 and enough to secure the overall bonus .

Jeff John Dave A and Vic followed a similar pattern 5-1 up after 5 but only gaining a 1 on the next 7 to fall behind 6-13 at 11 . Some steely determination reversed the roles with the opposition winning only 4 of the next 10 and with  a 3  a 5 and a 4 the lads romped away to a 21-19 win

Brian Graham Dave Ian B sharing ends in another nailbiter to be 13-14 behind at 15 , slipping back to 14-21 at end 19 it looked like the bonus was lost but in another dramatic twist a 4 on the 20th narrowed the gap to 19-21 Loss saving the day .

Shot Count 58 - 53
