Herefordshire and No Hurricanes
The weather continued to be kind and another hot sunny day was forecast for Warwickshire’s trip to Eastnor where the green and their opponents proved too testing for the visitors who lost their winning streak to finish 111-118.
Helen Harris (Stoke) with Christine Harding (Rugby Thornfield), Chris Ward (Lillington) and Ros Taylor (Avenue Coventry) were in determined mood and 9-1 up at 7 ends when their opponents started to pull back over the next three ends but the visitors held on to finish with a win 22-14.
Jenny Corn with Hazel Goodman (both Lillington), Cynthia Briggs (RLS) and Chris Roberts (Stoke) were fairly evenly matched and 13 all at 13 ends finishing just two shots ahead 23-21.
Debbie Bloxham (Stratford) with Joy Cooke (Blossomfield), Wendy Holloway (Welford) and Liz Crowther (Lillington) were on a roll and doing well until they dropped ten shots on the 14th and 15th ends which put the home team in front and it was only a determined effort and 4 shots on the last end that gave them the win 23-22.
Maureen Edwards (Rugby Thornfield) with Liz Chedgzoy (Stratford), Pat Harvey (Lillington) and Rosemarie Geden (Southam) were evenly matched until the last few ends when they managed to pull away and hold on to a tenuous 1 shot win 19-18.
Jean Petty (Norgren) with Liz Crispin (Wolvey), Janet Pooler (Stoke) and Linda Linney (Stratford) struggled to get going and it wasn’t until the 8th end that they scored but once on the board they kept going and although they never pulled ahead, they did hang on to only lose by 6 shots – 12-18.
Chris Cooke (Southam) with Donna Kerr (RLS), Pippa Mace and Ann Doherty (Lillington) were also fairly evenly matched for most of the game and it was only a surge by the home team over the last few ends that left them 12-25 adrift at the end.
County President, Joy Cooke, was delighted to be able to present Liz Crowther with her Colt Badge.
