Last night our mixed team was back at West End to play their ‘A’ team. Having just managed to beat the ‘B’ side there a few weeks earlier, we were expecting a tougher challenge this time. The match was once again played in a cloudless sky and our team looked in good form winning the first end by four shots.
Back came our opponents with a three shot win on the next, so all looked set for another close match.
Oatlands looked up for the challenge, winning four of the next six ends, with everyone contributing to lead our hosts 10-5 after eight ends, then winning the ninth end by five, which proved to be a defining moment in the match. West End ‘A’ never recovered, as Oatlands won seven of the last nine ends, to win the match 28-9. This was by far OPBC’s best team performance of the season. Congratulations to Jan, Gus, Chris and Mike.
