KTBC v Buckfastleigh July 10

Keith BastonSouth Devon Mixed Bowling League

Kingsbridge Town welcomed Buckfastleigh on Sunday in the South Devon Mixed Bowling League.  Due to various reasons, Town were without several key players and had to field a pair instead of a triple on 1 rink. In recent matches Town have fallen away in the 2nd half of matches but this time they bucked the trend. The score at the interval was 12-21 as all 3 rinks were 4-7 down and with 2 ends to go the visitors held a 25-38 advantage as they were winning on all 3 rinks. Town then got their act together as they scored 10 unanswered shots in the last 2 ends with 2 rinks winning and although they lost the match by 3 shots, 35-38,  they shared the match points with a 4-4 draw. In the circumstances this was a very good result.

Details:- Tony Walters, Keith Collins, John Yeabsley won 13-11. Brian Luscombe, Sandra Brayne, Eric Fitch won 13-12. Steve Ellis, Keith Brayne lost 9-15
