Friday 9th October. A very useful exercise. The Northern League Swords and Sabres teams played a practice match today which fully complied with the COVID19 guidelines . Firm instructions from Club Captain Yvonne Briden before the match. A good turn out of spectators who were individually signed in and separated from the main match. A good day for the Sabres taking 3 of 4 scoring rinks and the Challenger. Now for the real thing on Monday with the Swords playing Javea Opals at El Cid and the Sabres away to Javea Quartz. Come on El Cid!
Monday 12th October. Northern League - A mixed day for our teams today. First a superb day for the Sabres travelling away to Javea Quartz and taking a clean sweep of the points 10 - 0 and winning the Challenger rink. Could have been so different though with so many close games. Sabres taking the points on 1 rink by just 1 shot and the other 3 by just 3 shots. Also the Challenger won by just 2 shots! Not such a good day for the Swords though playing at El Cid against a very strong Javea Opals team Swords Captain Jill Glastonbury playing with Selma Loan and Norma Warrillow taking the only win for the day by 23 shots to 11. So the Opals taking the day 8-2 and winning the Challenger Rink as well. Next week (Monday 19th)the Swords are away to Finca Guila and the Sabres take on the BBC Tigers at El Cid.
Monday 19th October .A good day for El Cid. In the end good wins on all scoring rinks for the Sabres. 24/17, 22/12, 23/10 and 18/12. Some great saves by Ian Brown late in the game preventing some nervous moments in the last few ends on his rink. The Challenger rink of Paul Leeder, Ron Dingle and Peter Morgan ahead most of the game but slipping a little to go into the last end 15/15. El Cid skip Peter going to the mat 1 down but calmly drawing his first bowl in for shot which in the end ensured a 16/15 win.
A good result for the Swords winning 6/4 at Finca Guila. Again could have been different though with 1 scoring rink only losing 21/20. Great 21/7 win this week for Pat Willams, Tony Bishop and Alan Ferrand. Their score along with the 17/12 win by Selma Loan , Norma Warrillow and Jill Glastonbury seeing the Swords to a 67/62 win for the extra 2 points. No luck in the Challenger for the Swords this week. Next week sees the Swords at Home v Javea Quartz and the Sabres away to the BBC Jaguars.
