Daventry Over 60 Pairs team narrowly beaten

The Daventry IBC Over 60 Pairs team of Tony Dicks and Mick Worthington went down 18-17 to a Bromsgrove Pair of Peter Bryan and Graham Arnold in the Area Final at Rugby Thornfield on Tuesday evening.

3-3 after the opening three ends, the Bromsgrove pair took a decisive 11-3 lead after seven ends mainly due to inspired bowling by Peter Bryan. The next seven ends saw Bromsgrove score six shots as against four shots to Daventry to leave the score 17-7 with three ends to play. The prospects for the Daventry pair looked bleak at that stage but Tony and Mick scored five shots on the sixteenth end quickly followed by four shots in the penultimate end to set the game up for an exciting climax. They scored one on the final end to tie the scores at 17-17.

The final end was a tense affair before a superb draw by the Bromsgrove skip, Graham Arnold, saw them through to the National Finals in Nottingham.
