Daventry Eagles lose to Church Gresely 5 points to 3

This was the first knock out round after the team had won its Group league and they took on the runners up of Group 1, Church Gresley. This was going to be a very tough match and after the first two matches the Singles and Fours, it was 2 points each but we had an advantage of 6 score draws. We needed to win at least one match and keep the shot difference to as small a number as possible. We lost the pairs match but we were winning the triples at the last end by two shots but a poor draw shot hit the oppositions bowl to give Church Gresley a draw and consequently the match was lost 5 points to 3 although we maintained the shot difference of +2. So it was not to be but well done to everyone who played out of their skins, although they are reflecting that the match should have been theirs. Next year, you never know.

Daventry Eagles win against Rushden Rogues

It was nice for the team to play on a green which was similar to the club green before the new underlay, a little faster, so they adapted to it well and this can be seen by the overall result. Patrick Clerkin played an brilliant match with some excellent bowling to win 20 shots to 5 whilst at the same time the Fours match won very comfortably with 20 shots to 2. So the first half was a success, would the second half of pairs and triples be as good, well the pairs of Brenda Bishop and Mick Worthington really went well, winning convincingly by 22 shots to 2 however the Triples team had a bit more of a contest and although they gained 5 shots in their second end, they were not to see another score until the 9th end gaining 2 shots and fortunately the opposition only scoring ones or twos in the in-between ends, so at the 10th and final end, the Eagles were two down and needed to really pull one out of the bag to win this match which they did gaining 4 shots and winning 11 shots to 9 which gave the overall match to the Eagles by 8 points to 0, 8 valuable points and a clear shot difference of 52 which will hopefully give them the top spot in the league and a home tie in the knockout phase. We will have to wait for one result to come through on Tuesday morning between Wellingborough and Rushden to see if the team gained that position. Well done to all those who played.

Daventry Kestrels lose to Rugby Chuckers in Knockout round

This was the first round of the knockout stage having come runners up in their league. The first half matches did not fair well for the Kestrels losing both of their matches by some margin. The second half resulted in Eveline Worrall and Brian Gelder starting to master the very fast rink only just losing on the final end 10-12 after leading for most of the match. The Triples match was a real change, the team had started to master the speed of the rink and put up a great challenge, leading from the start, with some excellent bowling by skip Adge Smith to get the jack on his first bowl after the team was down 3 shots and the final end which could have lead to a possible draw and the Rugby skip failing in his attempt to move Adge's bowl from the head, therefore giving the Kestrels a win by 11 – 7 shots. The team overall struggled with the speed of the green having bowled for several weeks on the slower green at Daventry but that is the nature of the game so the end result was a 6 points to 2 win to Rugby who go through to the next round of the knockout stage. Well done to all those who bowled and to all members of the Kestrels team who helped in getting the team through to the knockout stage. We look forward to next year.

Daventry Eagles win against Rushden Rogues

This was an important match to win, winning 6 points to 2 with only one match left before the league finishes and the knockout stage begins. This was a replay of the match originally played on the 8th June where the opposition only turned up with 4 players and EIBA committee decided that we had to have a replay of the match. Tony Dicks was not up to his usual high standard due to an injury which occurred 3 days before to his bowling arm and this did affect his performance losing his singles match by 10 points to 8 however he had his revenge in the Pairs match winning 14 points to 4 and his arm starting to loosen up a little from earlier in the morning. A great performance was shown by the remainder of the team winning 21 points to 1 in the Fours match although they were held back a little in the Triples winning by 10 points to 6. Not only was the number of points for each match important but also the overall score difference which they won by 53 points to 20 as this score difference could make all the difference if two or more teams equal on match points. There is still a very good chance that the Eagles will win their league which will give them home advantage in the knockout stage and we will know shortly after the 11th August when the final round of the league must be played by. The teams final match is against Rushden Rogues away at Rushden on the 11th August with the aim of winning all the matches to give us 8 points so hopefully within a day we will know if the team has achieved their goal. Well done to all those who played.

Daventry Falcons lose to Kempston Park

A hard fought match but Kempston Park were once again too strong for the Falcons. Geoff Smith fought back after being 5 shots down to John Kayne to draw his match 11 all. They narrowly missed winning the Triples match losing by just one score draw. It was not to be the Falcons season this year gaining only one point of the 8 in this match and therefore coming third in the league but look forward to next year where they hope to get through to the knockout stage. Well done to everyone who bowled.

Daventry Kestrels win against Wellingborough A

What an excellent match to watch. The Kestrels pulled out all the stops to win this match against Wellingborough who had previously beaten the Kestrels at home. This match was important one to win as only 2 points were needed to ensure they got the Runners up spot in the league and in getting through to the Knockout stage and this they did convincingly winning by 6 points to 2. Well done to everyone who played and securing their position to take on the winners of Group 4 in the next stage.

Daventry Eagles win convincingly over Wellingborough B

This was an excellent match to watch. Wellingborough previously beat the Eagles in a match by 6 points to 2 but revenge was sweet when they played their hearts out to not only win the match but to win convincingly by 8 points to 0, along with a clear shot difference of 26. There was a bit of a faltering start for Tony Dicks in the Singles match against Bob Fuller being 8-2 down by the 7th end but digging deep Tony was able to win all the remaining ends to win an excellent match by 14-8, both players producing some excellent bowling. There was again a bit of a faltering start in the Pairs match but both Brenda Bishop and Tony Dicks soon settled down and won the Pairs by 11-6, a tough game as the Wellingborough Pair had a 5-0 lead by the 3rd end so they had to dig deep to come back and win convincingly. The stalwarts of Vicky Worthington, Patrick Clerkin and Mick Worthington who bowled brilliantly, easily won the Triples 16-7 and with the addition of Brenda Bishop in the Fours again won the match 9-3. So all round, the team had an excellent night and this will put them in a better position now to eventually top the league with two matches to go, Home and Away to the Rushden Rogues, which will take place during the first half of August. Well done to all.
