Tenby Arches Ladies v Pembroke Dock
Last Thursday afternoon, Tenby ladies played their third game of the season over at Pembroke Dock, where we received a very warm welcome. Unfortunately, the weather was not so kind and we were forced to take an early tea break to avoid a downpour.
Before the break, Pembroke Dock ladies on rink two were having an excellent start, leading by 10 shots to four after eight ends. After tea, everything changed and the Tenby rink consisting of Carol, Meryl, Jan and Gerry started to make progress and it was all even at 11 each at the 13th end. Tenby’s luck held and the final score was Tenby 26 Pembroke Dock. 12.
Over on rink one, the Tenby team of Margaret, Liz, Lynn and Jo went into an early lead and were ahead by 11 shots to three after the eighth end. Pembroke Dock fought back well, but Tenby managed to maintain their lead after the tea break, with the swingy hand on the ditch side seeming to suit them. The final score was Tenby 21 Pembroke Dock 10.
Five Arches players James Criddle and Mike Day were literally brought to their knees in Saturday’s match at Saundersfoot, when there was a close measure for a vital shot - vital, as the match was a close affair throughout, with the Arches holding an overall eight-shot lead at tea, before succumbing to a Saundersfoot fightback as the villagers ran out winners 82-66, picking up 12 points to two.
