Mid-Wilts “B” Roller Coaster

Life on the green with the Mid-Wilts “B” team is turning into a roller coaster ride in terms of the results of the last three games.
On the 8th June the team had an excellent win gaining maximum 14 points by winning on all four rinks and gaining the aggregate score as well with a total of 81 shots to 36.5. The half shot being the result of a mathematical calculation as on one rink Box only fielded two men and by the rules of the game forfeited 25% of their final score on that rink.
On the 15th June the team visited Trowbridge Town and the good run blipped again with a loss of 11 points to 3. Devizes only won on one rink with a team of Jeff Whiting, Peter Romijn and Dave Greenwood with a score of 16 – 14 whilst the third point came from a drawn rink of Phil Coombes, John Scoffield and Phil Cave at 14-14. With losses on the other rinks of 11-18 and 6-25 the aggregate points went to Trowbridge
The 22nd June saw a home game against Chippenham Town and unfortunately the team had a further upset going down by 70 shots to 85 and league points of just 1 to Trowbridge Towns 13. The one point was achieved by Phil Coombes, Colin Smith and Phil Cave who were winning handsomely, then catastrophe, dropped a 7 on the last end for a 20-20 result. All other rinks were fairly close with hard battles throughout the game. Rink 2 of Ken Curtis, Peter Romijn and Dave Greenwood lost 17-21 whilst on rink 3 Michael Alexander, Monty Smith and John Scoffield lost 17-24 and finally on rink 4 Simon Northway, Will Wrobel and Terry Miles dropped a 5 on the 16th end to lose 16-20.
Hopefully the good form will return next week at home to Blue Circle Westbury.
