It obviously didn’t help Wymondham as one of their players was missing and they had to play with three players. We used this to our advantage eventually winning comfortably. by 31-13

RINK 3: M. Botley, O. Secker, M. Minshull, P. McDonald v A. Gaze
A difficult game for Paul’s rink against a strong Wymondham rink and although we won 9 ends, they were all singles. This was probably their strongest rink, and we were not quite good enough on the day eventually losing by 11 shots. Score: 9 - 20
