Singles & Pairs K.O. Competition - 14th June 2016.
“Oh what a night” – Captain Meme reporting
At one stage it looked as though everything would be called off due to the excessive weather conditions during the course of the day, particularly as it seemed to be raining very large cats and dogs for most of it. It was almost on the biblical flood proportions on several occasions.
Lynne was representing the Club at the Kings arms in the singles and her opposition was from the Royal Clarence A, a tough first round. She was quickly into her stride and battling it out. Poised at 5-6 in her opponents favour she was still in contention and holding shot. One more shot later and the jack was moved and 5-6 became 5-9 and that was that as they say.
In the pairs at Beer club it was known as the group of death with the reining chaps and several topflight teams in the group. First round of the night saw a David and Goliath contest between Colyton FC (reining champs) and their third division challengers. What a battle ensued, it was all going to plan for the champs when the wheels started to fall off their wagon. With fine play still being produced on both sides it was the Clarence that stole the show and edged the game causing a big upset. You could say “it really wasn’t their night” as on the way over to the club Colyton’s pairing had their back window smashed by a stone flung up by a passing car, definitely not their night!
Now to our game against the Kings arms A. Pete the super sub stepped in to replace Lanky Sam who suddenly got a case of cold feet and couldn’t make it.
Not a good start when you go 6-0 down in two ends but Beer finally got their fingers out of their proverbial butts. Pulling back to 5-6 things were looking up but the Kings Arms pairings new tactic was to maim the opposition, namely me, trapping my finger between two boules. Slightly dented and throbbing, Pete and I soldiered on only to see them edge closer towards the finish line. With a determined effort we launched ourselves in the direction of the finish line. In a big dollop of déjà vu we where holding shot only to see Pierre spring the jack and claim the points needed for victory.
The kings Arms A duo took their place in the quarter finals against Axe cliff B.
In a close fought final game of the evening at Beer it was Axe cliff who narrowly took the honours and their place in the semi-finals at the Kingfisher.
