Chopwell Central 8 - 2 Chelmsford

We had a very disappointing points return from the efforts we put into our last game of the season at Chopwell Central on Tuesday night. We played a better game than the previous week, but Chopwell always seemed to edge us out of the games with their finishing. When we were in the lead they'd hit a big finish. When they were in the lead they allowed us to get close before finishing the game themselves.

Kris and I won a doubles point and our Man Of The Match Michael struck a great 64 finish, taking it out well in his own way. We can't feel too disappointed with this performance, which would have seen us winning against several other teams - it's just a pity it looks like a pasting.

We have a tied Player Of The Season this year with both Peter and Alan tied on 40 Brownie Points each. No one else even made it to the 30 mark, so it shows how well they have played.  I will tie break it with "total 180's scored" and if needs be "4 point games". I don't know who that favours, but I'll do my research and announce the result soon!

Chelmsford 3 - 7 Chopwell Central

I know the Wheatsheaf will be keeping an eye on our last two games of the season against Chopwell Central as they will have a bearing on the title. They won't like to see us losing, but it could have been far worse for us last night as we found ourselves 0-5 down and struggling to take the minimal chances that came our way. We usually fell well behind in the scoring but were then unable to take advantage of Copwell taking several attempts at the finishes.

We rescued three points from this match in the Singles games though. Welcome wins for Alan, Kris, and Willie game us at least some return for our efforts.

The dominoes were mixed for us, with a 3-2 win in the Singles games, but defeat in the Doubles game.

It is the last game of the season next week, but I know Kris has some more of his mini competitions to run during the close season so we'll be keeping the Tuesday habit.

Chelmsford 6 - 4 Wheatsheaf

We played a good game and took our chances well against a Wheatsheaf team who were not playing as strongly as the previous week.

After the Team and three Double games we were drawing at 2-2, but from that point we had a great showing in the six Singles games, with just two defeats in them.

Peter was our Man Of The Match. He's had to miss a third of this season's matches but made an impact with high scoring and winning finishes in his Doubles and Singles games.
