Season 2016 Play-Off Details

August 18th against Alton Social at Hook. (Quarter Final)

Rink 1: Ian Bowman, Dot Brown and Fred Brown.

The first part of this match was very well even at the score at the tea break was nine shots to  seven to AWRE. The turning point was the first end after tea, where AWRE B scored five shots to open a seven shot lead, which was followed by steady flow of winning ends. After end eighteen AWRE B had secured a comfortable victory of 23 - 10.

Rink 2: Diane Tompkins, Dave James and Graham Tompkins.

The AWRE B triple on this rink were never losing at any time in the match, however with only three ends to play the scores were level at eleven each. A very strong finish by AWRE B, in which they scored nine shots without reply, on the remaining ends meant victory by 20 - 11.

Rink 3: John Maycock, David Bowman and Elaine Bowman.

AWRE B were always leading this game up until end eleven, where they scored three shots, after which the score was eleven to AWRE against six by Alton Social. This end turned out to be the last won by AWRE B, and they conceded sixteen shots during the losing run. The final score was 11 - 22.

Match Result: AWRE B 54 (5 Points) Alton Social 43 (2 Points).

 Report written by Trevor Carter, League Secretary.  

Apologies for the delay in advising you of the result of the final held on Thursday at Howard Park BC between AWRE B and St Mary Bourne.   Despite a good start by St Mary Bourne on two of the three rinks, AWRE soon found the green and began to put together a good performance on all three rinks to put them in a healthy position by the tea interval. After tea AWRE kept the pressure on St Mary Bourne, steadily improving their position to win on rinks 2 and 3.  The game on rink 4 was running 2 ends behind the other two rinks but as St Mary Bourne were not in a position to win it, they accepted the inevitable and conceded the rink.  The win for AWRE meant they kept their clean sheet of winning every game this season and, of course, retaining the Shield for another year.

Congratulations to AWRE and commiserations to St Mary Bourne who also had one of their best seasons in the league but came up against an on form AWRE side .

Thanks also to Howard Park for allowing the final to be held on their green and for providing refreshments.  

Regards, Trevor
