OCC "A" v BANBURY CENTRAL "A"

 

City's bottom of the table clash with Banbury Central, could turn out to be the pivital turning point in City & County " A's " poor showing in Division One this season.

The Central side have always been a notoriously hard team for City to take points from, in the past, and for a while in this game, they were giving nothing away.

The game was extremely tight up to 13 end played across the board, when Mark Hancock's rink who found themselves 8-6 down at 9 ends, picked up 15 shots (1-1-2-3-3-1-5)  to lead 21-11 @17ends eventually winning by a healthy 8 shots.

Alan Ley's rink came through a hard game against Central's experienced Ian Whelpton's triple who had to forfeit 25% of their final score.

Paul Comley's rink also had to overcome a solid rink skipped by Will Campion to win 17-16.

Chris Earl (Picture)got his league season underway recording his first win of this years campaign. Chris's rink of Vic Bye, Keith Croxon, Mike Petersen.(Picture) got off to a very good start after dropping a shot on the first end, they proceed to picked up 8 shots on the bounce (1-2-2-2-2) to lead 8-1 @ 5ends, and although John Tee's rink did not allow Chris to get away to far, hitting back with a count of 5 on the 9th end, to bring the score to 11-9, by the 15 end Tee's rink had taken the lead, but to their credit the City rink held themselves together and picked up 4 shots over the next 2 ends, putting Chris backing front with 4 ends to play, fortunetly Central could only manage to pick up 2 shots to City's 7 over the remaining ends Chris coming out on top 25-17

                                       

Well a good result for City, but rumors had been circulating in certain circles that the Team Manager was preparing to go around a drag young Bill Allin from his sick bed to help stem the tided of defeats........... Get well soon old pal .... :)
