There were many happy smiley faces around the Quesada area last Monday, following both Blenheims and Lancasters table topping exploits. At start of play, both teams were leading their respective divisions, equal on points with their nearest rivals, but ahead on shots difference.
A final day Spitfire division fixture, away at bottom of the table San Miguel Christians, saw 4 out of 5 rinks securing a 10-2 victory. When news filtered through that Vistabella had only earned 7 points, these 4 winning rinks knew that their efforts weren’t in vain – G Phillips, M France, Jason P 23-10. M Highland, V Campbell, F Roberts 18-15. B Trinder, A Linley, T Morgan 33-8. S Barnes, B Elliott, D Barnes 20-16.
Lancasters meanwhile, had a home meeting with Emerald Isles Victors, knowing that they had to equal or better La Siesta’s result at lowly San Luis. Results mirrored that of Blenheims, making their end of season Chinese meal later that day, all the more tastier!!
So, well done to this little lot, for achieving the 10 points needed to lift the Hurricane division champions trophy – C Bowles, D Gould, K Bowles 28-6. C Lowry, S Jakeman, K Lowry 24-13. S Heath, J Brinton, S Hibberd 24-18. I Everett, K Gordon, A Reid 23-19.
