Blossomfield Welcomes Buckinghamshire
The weather was being kind for a change when Buckinghamshire came to Blossomfield but Warwickshire was in determined mood and although it was a friendly match and was played in good spirit it was apparent that the home team was out to win finishing with a resounding 151-72.
Highest winning rink went to Jenny Corn (Lillington) with Karen Rice (Entaco), Vanessa Brazier (Rugby Railway) and Liz Westell (Welford) who stormed ahead denying their opposition the opportunity to score until the 14th end and although the visitors started to peck away at their strong lead another turn around on the last few ends settled the score with a 37-7 scoreline.
Yvonne Bromfield (Rugby Thornfield) with Trudi Windsor (Bilton), Barbara Harsant (Solihull Municipal) and Chris Ward (Lillington) started gently but soon pulled ahead to eventually win 25-9.
Sigrid Thomas with Pat Lowe (both Rugby Thornfield), Hazel Goodman (Lillington) and Ann Harwood (Wolvey) were also fairly evenly matched to start but pulled ahead to also finish 25-9.
Sue Hornsby with Chris Richards (Lillington), Lilian Hope (Welford) and Chris Harrison (Ambleside) started slowly and were down most of the game but a determined effort in the second half ensured a 21-11 win.
Jacqui Cook (Lillington) with Carole Cox (Snitterfield), Margaret Andrew (Entaco) and Heather Tredgold (Southam) were level 8 all at 9 ends but 6 shots on the 12th end made all the difference and they went on to win 22-18.
Maureen Edwards (Rugby Thornfield) with Di Medhurst (Stoke), Ann Doherty (Lillington) and Joan Hall (Nuneaton) started well and were fairly even at 7-5 on the 10th end, but 6 shots on the 12th took its toll and they went on to win 21-18.
After thanking Blossomfield BC for a truly magnificent meal, County President, Di Medhurst, was delighted to present a Colt Badge to Vanessa Brazier.
