Daventry v Kettering 86-55

Daventry continue good run in County League

Daventry took on a good Kettering side in their second County League game and were rewarded with a fine 5-1 win.

Peter Dymond's rink made a good start at home by racing to a 11-0 lead after five ends. Although Kettering rallied with a good spell to score eight unanswered shots, Peter and his men asserted again to score twelve shots whilst only conceding three more to run out 23-11 winners. In the other home rink, Terry Fuller's team made a spectacular start by scoring nineteen shots without reply after seven ends. They continued their good form to lead 26-1 after eleven ends. Although Kettering staged a late rally to reduce the winning margin, Terry and his men scored a comprehensive 27-9 victory.

At Kettering, Mick Worthington's rink was involved in a close match in the early stages and the score was 6-6 after five ends. Kettering scored three singles to lead 9-6 after eight ends. However, Mick and his men finished the second half of the match strongly scoring twelve shots whilst restricting Kettering to two running out 18-11 winners. In the other away match, Patrick Clerkin's rink made a bright start leading 5-0 after two ends. However Peter Morgan, the Kettering skip, played some inspirational bowls to build up a 16-5 lead after eight ends. The game then took a dramatic turn as the Daventry rink made a brilliant comeback to level the match 18-18 with one end to go. They were holding one shot with one Kettering bowl to come and Peter Morgan again produced a magic wood to remove the two Daventry bowls in the head and pick up six shots for a 24-18 win.
