It Isn’t Over Until …

This evening Vanessa (Mitcham) and Neil played Streatham Park for a place in the final of the District Mixed Pairs. In a game which started in heavy rain, Vanessa and Neil opened up a 5 – 0 lead after four ends and promptly dropped a five to bring the scores level. Losing seven of the next eight ends to some very tidy draw bowling left the scores at 6 – 18 after 14 ends. Three ends later the score was 10 – 19, but the ends were ticking by rather too quickly until on the 18th end they picked up a five. Next end an unfortunate flick on the jack saw them drop a single before a three on the 20th end brought Vanessa and Neil within two shots of Streatham Park. Some great drawing on the last end in the dark saw them pick up the three required to book their place in the final 21 – 20… Phew!

A huge thank you to all of the Mitcham bowlers who braved the rain to give their support and to the Streatham Park bowlers for the wonderful spirit in which the game was played!
