Pairs Competition Results Saturday 12th June

Although doubtful it would go ahead, 18 teams turned out for the long weekend competition. Winners on the day were the father son combination of Steve/Graham Fishlock with 54 points + 21 shots up from the Di Harder/Liz Johns team who, with two hard fought wins, survived a count-back on 53 +18 shots up for the runners up prize.

The Fishlock’s win was not without drama either. After a comfortable 9-2 ends win in the first game, they jumped to a 5-1 lead after 4 ends in the second game; the opposition fought back to tie the score at 7 all and lead 5 ends to 4 after the 9th end. The opposition Skip drew shot to within 10 inches of the Jack with his last bowl. Match on the line, Graham, (noted for his stoicism during a match), stepped to the mat, looked to the heavens, closed his eyes and dropped a “yard-over” wobbler towards the head. The bowl finally found its line about 8 yards out and whispered past the shot bowl, trailing the jack for a 4-shot win. It was only then, that for the first time in the game, he was able to produce a smile. Well done, Graham!
