Game Week 13 Report

Bottom Two Teams in Close Scrap

In beating The Borough, C&G Show swapped places with their opponents to go a mere half point ahead of them in the league table. Bowling first, C&G Show were two pins adrift after leg one. The game then swung in C&G Show’s favour as they took a four pin lead after the second leg which they increased to nine pins after leg three. But a bad fourth leg score then let The Borough back into the game as they reduced the deficit to just a single pin. C&G Show scored better in leg five but still left The Borough needing a very manageable 61 to win. The Borough though started indifferently; rarely looked likely to make that target; and finished just four pins short. For C&G Show, top scorers were Dave Orton with 37 pins and Rich Fisher and Keith Edwards (incl 10 stack) with 34 each. Best scores for The Borough came from Tom Baker with 36 and 34 each from Alex Taylor and Steve Court.

Nomads climbed a place in the league with a good win over Bernie’s Bolts. Nomads opened up a 16 pin lead after leg one before extending their advantage to 24 pins by taking each of the next two legs and looked likely to take maximum points from the game. The Bolts, though, fought back to take the last two legs but despite hitting the highest leg score of the game in leg five, the target of 86 left by Nomads was always out of The Bolts reach. Alan Cummings made 40, Dave Maule 37 & James Marshall 36 for Nomads while The Bolts best were Jim Williamson 44 (14 stack), Mark Andrews 37, & Lewis McSweeney 33.

Lodge Farmers’ three highest scores of the season to date have all been against Jumbo Jets who they comfortably beat again to take maximum points and consolidate their position at the top of the table. Jamie McGill made 41, Andy Rumble 40 (13 stack), and Paul Cotton & Tim Jones 34 each for Lodge Farmers. Jumbo Jets had only Mick Stanton with 35 and Ray Jones & Rob Quartly with 34 each, making good scores.
