On Saturday the ladies played Greystones away they lost 9 – 13. Their next game is at home to Kenilworth on the 6th of August.
The 1st team Had no game. The next match is away to Bray on the 6th of August.
On Monday night the second team played CYM 5th’s who were 2nd in the league. CYM turned up with only 10 players. This could be due to their 1st team not being able to postpone their game. We ended up winning 40 – 37 and 4.5 points to 1.5. But this was a game that we could have easily won 6 – 0. With 3 ends to go we were 8 shots up but only won 2 of the last 9 ends played. With one rink drawing and another rink losing by 1 shot only. As this is the 3rd or 4th game where we have struggled over the final few ends I think next year will will need to do some stamina training at the start of the season.There is no game next week so the next game is at home to Westmanstown on Monday the 15th of August.
Drew’s rink of Rory, Brendan B and John H played against 3 players. Neither team could take control in a low scoring game. 4 – 4 after 5 ends, 8 – 7 after 10 ends and 11 – 9 after 13 ends. CYM did win 3 of the last 4 ends to bring the on rink score to 13 – 12. but when the loss of 1/4 of their points was calculated the final score was 13 – 9.
John M’s ring of Paul K, David and Tony also played against 3 people. They started well enough and in a close match they were 12 – 10 up after 10 ends but they only won 1 of the last 6 ends and lost 14 -20 which after deductions was only a one point loss 14 – 15.
Nigel’s rink of Brendan S, Viv and Joe were in another low scoring game but looked to be in control when leading 10 – 4 after 7 ends and 12 – 7 after 11 ends. But they only won 1 of the last 5 ends as CYM fought back to tie the rink 13 – 13.
