Back to work as usual on a bright but blustery Monday morning, against our close neighbours La Siesta.
South Alicante League: Enterprise Div. 10th Jan. Klingons, were away v Apollos but unfortunately things didn’t go quite to plan for us with a reverse of the previous home match 2pts-8, shots 60-81, valiant battlers: Margaret Morrison, Pam Lockett, Neil Morrison 22-16.
Discovery Div. Meanwhile at home, Trekkers were enjoying their reverse result; an excellent win v La Siesta Pioneers 10-0, 81 shots-42. Well done: Dee Hoey, Ralph Jones, Lyndon Johnson 19-11, Brian White, Peter Ayres, Derrick Cooper 27-10, Pauline Johnson, Stuart Wilson, Steve Penfold 21-9, Fran Cox, Brenda Brown, Barry Edwards 14-12.
Southern League Div A. Friday 14th Lions were away v El Rancho Mustangs. For once the wind remained calm, so the only problem was trying to play with so many layers of clothes + woolly hats & gloves (for some of us) against the 8º c temperature we started with!! However we warmed up as the sun gradually appeared, winning 2 and taking the shots 64-60 for a 6-4 win. Well done: Helen Hammond, Bill Webb, Scott Malden 20-8 & Jane Hamill, Sheila Cammack, Stewart Hamill 19-14.
Div B. Tigers were home v La Marina Seagulls & had some close fought games, with a win & a draw but taking the shots 67-60 for a useful 5-5 points draw. (Strangely enough the first match of the season away v LM Seagulls ended 5-5 with shots 71-71!!) Winners: Dee Hoey, Brenda Brown, Bob Bromley 24-11, John Bagnall, Sue Ross, Brian Fraser 15-15.
