Both teams played reasonably well on Tuesday, but we seemed to take leads and finish well to ensure a victory. We took four of the final five Singles points, which was a marked improvement from our last game where so many Singles points were shipped.
From our team Alan P hit a 165 to leave a good out shot for Willie in the Doubles, but Peter takes the Man Of The Match for being the only one of us to hit two finishing doubles. Although they were both D1 shots they were taken at the first time of asking and it is so easy to spoil a game on this finish.
It was my first visit to The Ox Inn, having missed this fixture last season. It is a smart modern pub which is thoughtfully laid out and I enjoyed the night up there. They had three different types of keg conditioned beer from The Consett Brewery which is based at The Grey Horse which is just 6 miles away. It travelled well!
