Reports Ladies Matches
Thursday 13th June at Essex County
Two teams represented Billericay in this charity tournament which consisted of three games of 8 ends with 2 woods.
While the weather remained dry the temperature was cool with a strong wind which did affect the delivery of the woods
Edith,Jean H and Hazel won their first game but were unfortunately defeated in their next two.
Michelle,Sandra and Lynn had a bye in the first match and were defeated in the next two (losing on shots but drawing on ends)
An enjoyable day never the less.
Tuesday 11 th June Albert Crabb match against South Benfleet and Canvey
Despite the threat of inclement weather and a burst water main ( which resulted in the game being postponed, at the last minute ,from 10:30 until 1pm) the ladies put up a good fight but were unfortunately denied a victory.
The home team ( Jill,Edith,Jean H, Christine) were defeated 11-23 -with the strategy of long jacks- even though they displayed their talents .
The away team ( Michelle, Sandra,Lynn Jenny) were defeated 18-20 although won 11 of the 21 ends and were leading until the 17th end when the opposition drew level. They won 2 more end by 2 shots whereas we won two more ends by just 1 shot. :-(
