Match Reports

What started off  a bright sunny Thursday evening in Sandwich, turned into a cold wet night which matched the Herne Bay 'B' sides hopes of advancement in the Preliminary round of the EBA Top Club. A sign of things to come came in the 17th end of Bob Simcock's 2 wood singles. Holding 2 shots with one wood touching the jack his opponent put up a firm bowl, hit Bob's shot out the head and took 2 shots himself. If Bob had kept the 2 shots the game would have been level at 12 all. But 10 - 14 down with a couple of ends remaining was too much to ask. The triple of Colin Hadlow, Peter Gibson and Brian Dennis led 12 - 3 after 10 ends only to succumb to a 2 shot defeat on the last end at 14 all. With the Pairs and Fours suffering defeats it was left to Stevie Brown to restore some pride to "The Bay" with a fine 19 - 16 win in the Singles.Well played Steve.  We were, after the game, rewarded with a splendid hot buffet and our grateful thanks go to Gordon & his team. On reflection we must accept that overall the best side won and as many school reports say "Must Try Harder". 
On behalf of the team and myself we would like to thank Alf, Eunice, Lyn & John for your support
