Chelmsford 5 - 5 Chopwell Central

I thought both teams struggled tonight and it was a fairly low key event. We won the opening Team game against the run of play and at least we took the few chances that came along to get some points against a good Chopwell team.

Sadly for me my good run of 12 consecutive Doubles wins came to an end, but we went out with a fight and this will be a great target to aim for next season. That's a decent run in a two horse race, and I'm really pleased with it, especially as it spanned the Delves and Wheatsheaf games.

Man Of the Match was definately Norman from Chopwell Central who played a strong game all night and hit a 180. Alan P played our best Singles game.

It's the last game of the season next week. I'll take the camera and there'll be the usual Season review to disect and take to my usual OCD level :o)

Chelmsford 5 - 5 Wheatsheaf

We had a much better showing on Tuesday night. Admittedly The Wheatsheaf stepped down a gear from last week, but we still had to be there and ready to take our chances as they came along.

Even though we lost the opening Team game every one of us had the chance to win the game in what became a D1 marathon.
In contrast to last week we were close in all of the games, and can even rue a few missed chances after we got to five points with a couple of games remaining.

Alan P hit a nice 111 finish (S20, T17, d20) in his Singles game, and there was some good, confident play again from Kris to send us into the last two games of the season against Chopwell Central with some momentum. A good night for us.

Wheatsheaf 8 - 2 Chelmsford

Pictured : A practice Maximum

Our excellent recent run came to an abrupt end at The Wheatsheaf on Tuesday night. Our scoring was generally poor and this meant every time The Wheatsheaf hesitated over a double we were rarely in a position to take advantage, sometimes being a couple of hundred points behind.

They were good though, with some long strings of decent scores. Our only two points came from Peter and myself in our Doubles games, and Kris in his Singles game.

If we want to get a few more points in the home game we've simply got to score better than this. We were rarely near a finish in most of the games, with a few single digit scores to quickly forget!

Great food and hospitality as always up there.
