Dark Horses Triumph

The Dark Horses finished the season on a high gaining 20 points in the last four games, 4 points each from Holt and Trowbridge Angels and the full six points from Spencer Melksham Smoothies and Chippenham Town Dragons.

I would like to express my congratulations to my team and say how proud of them I am as we have finished top of the Third Division of Norwest League (sharing 49 points with Spencer Melksham Smoothies but we achieved a bigger shot difference which has given us the top spot!!)

Well done Alison Cross, Lynne Williams, Debbie Greenwood, Sue Reeves, Liz Soellner, Jan Hodgetts, Lynn Hicks, Rachel Whiting, Margaret Cave and Ingrid Thorogood.

Dark Horses Great Win

On Monday, 12th June the Dark Horses team travelled to Corsham for their second away game of the season which proved to be a successful evening returning home with a full 6 points.

The triple of Lynn Hicks, Alison Cross and Rosemary Keen won 26 – 10 and Rachael Whiting, Debbie Greenwood and Sue Reeves won 27 – 10.

A special well done goes to Rachael who played her first game!!

Dark Horses Out In The Cold

Dark Horses first away game of the season was against Avon Astras on a cold evening on 7th June.  They came away with 2 points thanks to the great effort of the triple of Sue Reeves, Debbie Greenwood and Ingrid Thorogood.  However the triple of Rosemary Keen, Jan Hodgetts and Margaret Cave were unable to match their opponents and lost heavily.

Well done Sue’s team!!

Dark Horses Battle Hard

On the evening of Tuesday, 30th May, Dark Horses played another home game.  This time their opponents were Chippenham Town Dragons. After a hard fought game they came away with another 4 points. The triple of Rosemary Keen, Lynne Williams and Lynn Hicks won 19 -12 but unfortunately despite a brave fight the triple of Sue Reeves, Jan Hodgetts and Alison Cross were unable to seal a win but fortunately we were able to maintain the aggregate and as a result Dark Horses  won 4 points to 2.

Dark Horses Fight Back

Dark Horses second game was played on a warm Thursday evening resulted in another great win and another full 6 league points.

The triple of Ingrid Thorogood, Debbie Greenwood and Sue Reeves won 15 – 11 whilst Alison Cross, Lynne Williams and Rose Keen achieved a 17 – 15 win. These scores were the result of a magnificent recovery from a fairly disastrous start with both rinks well behind in the first half of the game but coming good by the end of the night. Once again well done girls!!!

Dark Horses Season Starts

Dark Horses had a late start to their 2017 season as two teams withdrew from the league so delaying the campaign to try and achieve an immediate return to Division 2 of the Nor-West Triples League. However, we had a super coaching session with Jenny and Debbie at the end of last month and since then have had a couple of team building roll-up sessions which proved very useful.

The first game eventually took place at home against Calne Ants with Sue’s rink finishing with a score of 23 – 6 and Rose’s rink 18 – 12 earning a win by a clear 23 shots and gaining the full 6 league points. Well done team.
