Rink 2 Pat Benefer, Carol Tipton and Mark Watson won 13-4 against A Willer.

Rink 3 Roy Taylor, Sheila Bragg and Kevin Noble lost 7-10 against B Hall.

On Rink 1 A slow start to this game with Ashill leading 7-0 by end six, scoring a two and five singles. Ashill then came to life scoring thirteen over the next five ends to lead 20-0. Connaught did manage to win the last two ends. A disappointing end to the season for this triple who have played so well all season. Connaught won three ends.

On Rink 2 A good steady start by Connaught leading 8-0 by end four. Connaught increased their lead to 11-2 by end eight. The two teams shared the last four ends with two singles each. Connaught won 13-4 and eight ends.

On Rink 3 A low start by Connaught who were four down by end three. They picked up a three on end four and shared the net two ends with singles to be only one down by end six. They dropped a three on end seven, picked up two singles on ends eight and nine to be 6-8 down. They shared the next two ends with singles to be 7-9 down going into the last end. Connaught were holding three with B Hall only having one shot remaining. When it looked as though his bowl was heavy and going wide, he got a lucky wick which took the jack to score a single. Connaught won five ends.

Another point from the team and we would have been Division One winners. There is still a chance but we are now waiting on the final teams to finish the league.

For info - we think the latest league is

Connaught played twelve with 62 points

Mundford A played eleven with 55 points

Aldiss Park Magpies played eleven with 53 points

Ashill played eleven with 53 points.

Rink 2 Pat Benefer, Kevin Noble and Mark Watson drew 13-13 against S Stevenson.

Rink 3 Catherine Branch, Owen Secker and Paul McDonald won 15-10 against P Roseblade.

On Rink 1 Connaught won the first end by two but were 3-12 down by end eight. They recovered to score eight to Dell’s one to come back to a two-shot deficit after fourteen ends. They then dropped three over the next two ends and were 11-16 down after sixteen ends. They dug in and scored a two on end 17 and, with the skips left to bowl, Roy delivered his best three woods of the game with three wide-swinging forehands all scoring to make it 5. Connaught won 18-16. Connaught were only ever ahead on the first and last end – thats the way to do it! The ends were shared nine each.

On Rink 2 A very hard-fought game. Connaught were leading 5-4 by end five but were 7-10 down by end 10. Connaught replied with five singles over the next five ends to lead 12-10. Dell then scored a two and a one on ends sixteen and seventeen to lead by one. Connaught managed to score a single on the last end to draw the game 17-17.

Connaught then took the next four ends with singles to lead12-9. Dell won end fifteen with a single making the score 12-10 to Connaught. Connaught took the last three ends with singles to win 15-10 and won eleven ends.
Once again, a very low scoring evenly fought game. Well done.

On the latest league update we are top with sixty points with one game left to play. Aldiss Magpies are second with forty-nine and Mundford A third with forty-seven but both have a game in hand over us. Our last game is on August 16th against Ashill who are fourth on forty-three points. Any support on the night would be appreciated.

Everything to play for.

On Rink 3 A very even game up until end thirteen with Connaught leading 8-7. Connaught then hit a purple patch winning the remaining five ends and scoring fourteen to win 22-7. A very convincing win considering how well the Chalk family played last week on their green. Connaught won twelve ends.

The latest league shows us in third place, four points behind Aldiss Park Magpies with a game in hand. With our tremendous 8-0 win over Mundford A included, the top three teams have played ten games and Connaught are four points ahead at the top of the league with two games left to play.

It’s getting exciting!

A good all-round performance, especially Carol Tipton at number two.

On Rink 3 A good start with Connaught leading 7-0 by end 4 but then the wheels sort of fell of the bus as they lost the next eight ends with Magpies scoring fifteen to lead 15-7. By end seventeen Magpies had increased their lead to 19-9. Connaught managed a three on the last end which contributed to Connaught levelling the overall score to 53-53.

Just one more scoring wood out of the 486 bowled would have given us the overall win. But that’s bowls isn’t it!

 CONNAUGHT OAK V MUNDFORD B

Rink 1 Graham Benefer, Sylvia Parsons and Mark Watson lost 15-19 against T Stratful.

On Rink 2 A disastrous start by Connaught going 0-15 down after six ends. Connaught recovered a little in the second third of the game scoring six to Mundford’s four to reduce the deficit to 13. (At this stage of the match Connaught were still trailing Mundford by two overall). This rink then hit a purple patch by winning five of the last six ends, scoring twelve to Mundford’s 1 reducing their deficit to only three thus helping the overall score. Connaught won eight ends

On Rink 5 A terrific performance by this triple who won fourteen of the eighteen ends and restricted Mundford to one two and three singles. Connaught maintained their concentration throughout this game. Although the overall score makes it look easy there were no high scoring ends: one three, seven twos and 6 singles. Well done to all three players

Although we lost two rinks with a small deficit of 7 this was more than outweighed by Rink 5’s net score of 18
