Some sterling team-gathering enabled both mens and womens team to produce sterling turnouts and sterling performances - and whilst the ladies had to settle for 2nd again behind the perennial E&E-ites,the men managed to defeat the same rivals for the first time this summer.Match scores - Men: K&P 145/E&E138/SoC 103/Cro 96/DMV 74/S&D 13/Cra 5 - Women: E&E 159/K&P 102/DMV 87/Cro 77 - and Overall - Men: E&E 31/K&P 29/Cro 20(368)/SoC 20(336)/DMV 19/Cra 12/S&D 6/RSB 4 - Women:E&E 32/K&P 28/Cro 23/DMV 21/SoC 11/RSB 7.
In the mens match,Graham Huntley had a field day(or evening),scoring 36pts in 5 events,including 2 wins;there were also wins for Ant Budarkiewicz(800 2.17.1),Pat Logan(200 24.9) & Les Hatton(JT800 36.37) whilst virtually all the other 8 team members took a 2nd place each;on the other side,Mary Waddington,our one and only 50 plus combatant,emulated Mr Huntley with 31pts from her 5 events;there were wins for Camilla Thrush(making 9/9 for the season),& Jane Searle(2) whilst the other team members all grabbed 2nds/3rds.
Sadly,once again,neither team was able to wrest the one-per-division League Final place from E&E - we SHALL.
