MOONFLEET B 40 v DORSET RESORT 29
Moonfleet Ladies B team travelled to Dorset Bowls Resort in this latest Ladies County league match. Mary Dunne, Sheila Escott, Ruthie Neary and skip Rose Giles had an incredibly close tussle with the Dorset Resort rink with skip Bev Champion. After seven ends the scores were even at 6 -6 and again at twelve ends the scores were equal at 9 – 9. The game of cat and mouse continued for another five ends when the scores were again tied at 13 – 13, but the hosts then took the reins and kept control of the final four ends to finish with a win of 18 – 13.
On the other rink Karen Hofen, Sue Board, Judy Why and skip Jill Gwilliam had a very close first seven ends against the Resort rink with skip J Langworthy where the scores, as on the other rink, were tied at 6 shots each. From this point onwards though, the Fleet foursome took control and gradually piled on the pressure to open up a 19 – 8 lead by end fifteen. There was little the hosts could do to keep out the Moonfleet quartet who, by the final end, had notched up a convincing 27 – 11 victory which also gave them an overall winning total score of 40 – 29.
