Mat 2

Elaine and Bob Oatway lost 4-17 against P.Williamson and S.Hall (sub for A.Bunn)


Very pleased to get our first win albeit a narrow one, mainly due to Bob Having his worst game of the season.Elaine led very well but Bob could not get to grips with the mat and was very pleased to get the win due to the rest of the team playing well.

The evening didn't go to plan for Hevingham from the start as Steve Hall suffered a car breakdown on the way and had to be recovered to Norwich to get it fixed. Alan Bunn stood in for him and was subbed after 5 ends. the drama didn't affect Steve as he played excellent woods to run out mat winners.
