Mat 2 got off to a bad start 4-10 after 5 ends 7-3 after 10 ends, but a late rally on the last 5 ends saw them claw back 7 shots. Great effort from Mike Smail after suffering a hand injury with a circular saw. luckily not his bowling hand.

 First half gave us hop of a tight game as the two Mikes played well together to win by 4 shots and Di,John and Joe also played well to keep the shots down, only spoilt by a dropped 5 on end 5.

2nd half showed another tight game on mat 1 as they only went down by 4 shots, but the damage was done on Mat 2 as they could not stop Halvergate scoring. Some very impressive bowling by Mike Harvey at lead set the way an David Lamb continued, and we just had no answer to the onslaught.


10th December 2019


We lost 0-2 and 46-55 on shots

Mat 1

Mike Smail and Tony Ottewell lost 6-20 against Teresa and Selwyn Goldsmith Connaught won 4 Ends

Mat 2

Di Quadling and Mike Minshull lost 8-13 against P.Williamson and S.Hall. Connaught won 6 ends

Hoping to reverse the loss away to Hevingham, was not to be as Teresa and Selwyn took control of the mat from the start,with some superb bowling. On mat 2 leading 9-2 after 8 ends looked like a small win was on the cards, but a rally by Hevingham took them into the lead 12-9 after 12 ends. 2x2's by Connaught saw them take the lead but a dropped 3 on the last end saw a 2 shot loss.

Second half looked better as Oatway's triple roared ahead to be 16-2 after 10 ends and on mat 1 the score was 5 all after 10 ends. A ever hopeful  Captain was willing his side to turn over the first half loss, but Hevingham had other ideas and took the last 5 ends on mat 1 by 5 shots to 3 and on Mat 2 8 shots to 3 to ensure they won.

Mat 2 were 5-4 up after 5 ends 9-9 after 10 ends and took the remaining ends 6 to 3 a good game with both sides playing well.

Mat 1

0-11 down after 5 ends but then rallied and took the next 7 ends to lead 14-112 single dropped on the next two ends , and took a single on the last end to secure a win. Another impressive performance from the Conaught Players

Mat 2

Connaught's Players never got into the game and a very disappointing result. Both Elaine and Bob can play better but tonight was an abysmal night for them and they can only apologise to the team who fought so hard on the other 3 mats. Taking nothing away from the Hevingham players who played well all night especially David at lead who drew in spectacularly all night. 

Overall very pleased with the three mat wins but bitterly disappointed on the losing mat which cost us the game.

Congratulations to David and Steve on a fabulous performance on the night to get Hevingham's win
