Game Week 20 Report

Lodge Farmers Edge Top

Despite collecting maximum points against The Borough, Lodge Farmers now top the table by just three points from Engineers who have a game in hand and remain favourites to take the league title.

The Borough started brightly with an eye catching first leg score of 69 pins, but then found Lodge Farmers in good form to take the leg by three pins, thanks largely to a 13 pin stack by Chris Prichard. Lodge Farmers then scored a modest 62 pins in leg two but The Borough couldn’t take advantage and slipped further adrift when replying with only 53 pins. The Borough never recovered and only managed low scores over the next three legs while Lodge Farmers went from strength to strength to run out comfortable winners.  For the winners, Chris Prichard ended with 40; Richard Long 38 (incl 13 stack); and Jamie McGill 37. Best for The Borough were Julian Workman with 37; Rhiannon Mosely 34; and Charlie Few 33.

In the other game of the week, C&G Show just failed to take leg one against Jumbo Jet Set – losing it by just one pin. And a modest second leg score by C&G Show enabled Jumbo Jets to open up a 12 pin leg score before extending that lead to 28 pins after leg three. C&G Show reduced their arrears to 17 pins by winning leg four but there the fight back ended. Jumbo Jets had a good last leg score of 68 pins to leave their opponents wanting  86 pins to win, but which proved to be well out of reach. Mick Stanton for Jumbo Jets scored 40 (incl 13 stack); Darren Summers 38; and Dave Badsey 34. C&G Show had best scores from Aaron Evans 36 and Paul Fisher & Bryan Smith 34 each.

Lodge Farmers 335 (10pts) v The Borough 288 (1pt)

C&G Show 285 (2pts) v Jumbo Jet Set 313 (9pts)
