CONNAUGHT OAK V ALDISS PARK MAGPIES

Connaught Oak drew at home to Aldiss Park Magpies on August 24th 55-54 and 4-4.

Rink 1 Pat Benefer, Roy Taylor and Mark Watson lost 19-22 against D Gamble.

Rink 2 Mike Parsons, Pam Smith and Kevin Bartlett won 22-12 to T Cator.

Rink 3 Graham Benefer, Carol Tipton and Paul McDonald lost 14-20 against R Scott.

So near yet so far, we needed a 6-2 to win to overhaul the Magpies to top the lead but, as the above score shows we just failed. They were just too good for us.

On Rink 1 Connaught led 3-1 by end 2 but then, disaster struck with Magpies scoring fourteen over the next four ends to lead 15-3. We steadied the boat by winning the next three ends but only with singles. Magpies then scored a three on end ten to take the score 18-6 to the Magpies. We managed to win six of the last eight ends to score twelve to Magpies’ four over the last eight ends to lose 19-22. Connaught won ten ends.Pat Benefer had a very good game at lead, but the Magpies skip and number two were equal to anything Roy and Mark could do.

On Rink 2 the story was a bit different with Connaught leading 11-4 by end six. By end twelve, Magpies had reduced the deficit to four by end twelve but Connaught replied by winning five of the last six ends scoring nine to Magpies’ three to win 22-12. Connaught won eleven ends. All three Connaught players had a very good game – well done

On Rink 3 Connaught had a slow start and were 2-10 down by end six. Connaught then won four of the next six ends scoring nine to Magpies’ three reducing the deficit to two. By end sixteen Connaught were only one behind but Magpies scored a four and a single on the last two ends to win 20-14. Connaught won seven ends.

Although it was not the result we hoped for, the team showed strength of character and commitment to achieve the results they did.

In May it was good to get back to competitive bowling and I am proud of all the teams who have shown their commitment in what, for some, has been a trying season.
Thanks to the everyone who has played in the Ashill leagues this season, especially the other three team captains who, in their own ways have had successes this year and especially the Yew team who do not prop up the league this year. The commitment and enthusiasm from all the players has been exceptional this year.
We do not know what the leagues will look like next year and will depend on how may teams return to competitive bowling. Whatever happens next year, I believe Connaught will be a major contributor to the Ashill competition

 

 

CONNAUGHT OAK V DEREHAM ST NICOLAS

Connaught Oak won away to Dereham St Nicholas on August 17th 68-36 and 8-0.

Rink 3 Derek Liles, Pam Smith and Roy Taylor won 26-4 against B Cooper.

Rink 4 Jenny Moon, Owen Secker and Mark Watson won 20-16 against S Granger.

Rink 5 Anne Bayes, Carol Tipton and Kevin Bartlett won 22-16 against J Hunt.

On Rink 3 Roy’s triple had established a 6-1 lead and from then on, they never looked back leading 14-3 by end twelve. Connaught continued their good form to win five of the last six ends scoring twelve to St Nics one. Connaught won fourteen ends.
An excellent performance by all three Connaught players on a very damp green.

On Rink 4 it was a slow start with Connaught trailing 3-6 after six ends. By end twelve we were even further behind at 7-12. Connaught then turned it around over the last six ends by winning five ends and scoring thirteen to St Nics four to win 20-16. Connaught won ten ends.
Well Done.

On Rink 5 Connaught made a good start leading 8-3 by end six and increased their lead by scoring seven over the next two ends, to lead 15-3. St Nics started to make a comeback by scoring eight on ends nine and ten, to reduce our lead four at 15-11, but Connaught steadied the boat to win five of the last nine ends, scoring seven to St Nicks five to win 22-16. Connaught won eleven ends.
Well Done.

This 8-0 result keeps us in contention to top the league. By my calculations a 6-2 won against Aldis Park Magpies in our last game next week should suffice.

 

 

 

CONNAUGHT OAK V THETFORD

Connaught Oak won at home to Thetford on August 3rd 52-39 and 8-0.

Rink 1 Graham Benefer, Carol Tipton and Roy Taylor won 19-12 against G Holbrook.

Rink 2 Derek Liles, Pam Smith and Kevin Bartlett won 16-13 against M Holbrook.

Rink 3 Pat Benefer, Jim Squire and Paul McDonald won 17-14 against M Struthers.

A score of 8-0 to Connaught might imply that this was an easy game but it was far from easy.

On Rink 1 Roy’s triple had the biggest winning margin of seven, which was down to scoring four on end four and three on ends three and twelve. All other ends were won by seven singles and one two. Connaught won twelve ends.Carol Tipton had an exceptional game – well done.

On Rinks 2 and 3 the games were a lot tighter with both teams winning by three shots. At the halfway mark both teams had significant leads of eight on rink two and twelve on rink three. In the second half both teams only won three of the remaining nine ends, dropping ten shots to five on rink two and twelve shots to four on rink three. Connaught won ten ends on rink two and twelve ends on rink three.

A score of 8-0 keeps us in touch with Aldiss Magpies who were three points ahead of us before this match.
Well done everyone.

30-9. Connaught won twelve ends.
All three Connaught players had a very good game. Well done.

The news not quite so good on rinks five and six.

On Rink 5 the ends were shared nine each but, a three on end one and a four on end fifteen for Northwold was the telling factor in an otherwise low-scoring game with only twenty-two points scored in the other sixteen ends. Connaught won nine ends.

On Rink 6 Northwold won ten ends but on five of these ends they scored 1 x 5, 3 x 4 and
1 x 3 totalling twenty of their twenty-five which was obviously the telling factor in this game.  Connaught won eight ends.

In the two games against Northwold we have managed to score twelve of the sixteen points available. Well done.

Well played against a top-quality triple from the Dell.

On Rink 3 a slow start by Connaught who were 1-8 down after six ends. Connaught then woke up and scored eight over the next four ends to the Dell’s one, to even the score at 9-9. Then, unexpectedly, Connaught dropped a six on end twelve in this tight game. Connaught then won four of the next five ends by 7-1 to make the score 17-16 going into the last end which, unfortunately we lost by 2. Dell deserved their win as they led for fifteen of the eighteen ends. Connaught won nine ends.

Hard luck.

A good night’s bowling on a fine evening.
