We welcomed our near neighbours Tanfield to the Northern this evening with us in 5th place & Tanfield in 6th place 8.5 points behind us after 10 games, Big George Prentice was on R1 and got us off to a great start with a good win against a strong Tanfield rink, great 2 points.
On R3 was just returned from holiday Jamie Reid and they were up against it from the start,they were a good few shots down after about 7 ends, but a fantastic fight back got them back to peels with one to play , alas after a very tight last end we lost this one and it was 2 points each so far.
On R3 we had Young Gordon and his boys , after the first few ends we were again a few shots down, at about end 11 we were 11-6 down and picked up 5 so peels at 11, we won the next couple of ends and were 15-11 up,at the 3rd last end we were lying 3 shots and the Tanfield skip drove at the head and got an unbelievable result removing our 3 bowls and leaving all their bowls for a 5 shot result, they won the last couple of ends to win 19-15,
Lastly up on R5 was Snoddy,John Young,Gogs Snr and James Barr and this rink is on fire at the moment winning this game comfortably and helping immensely with the shots difference, great win lads, and a couple of fabulous take out shots from Big James helped with this win,
Excellent 5-4 home win lads and we keep our heads well above water and stretched our gap away from Tanfield by a massive Big 1 Point.
Queensberry away next week.
