1st XVIs Vs Carricknowe

Week 2 of the EBL 1st XVIs league saw us heading up to Carricknowe who joined the EBL 4 yrs ago and have since won divisions 5,4,3 and Runners up in Div 2, the weather for this league match was not looking too good as it had been raining all day, considering the weather the pace of the green was in good nick, with the 1st 5 ends played we only had 1 rink up,young Gordon & his troops were 8-1 up but unfortunately the other 3 rinks were the reverse for the home team, Our 4 skips on the night James Barr,Jamie Reid,Ian Miller & Young Gogs were all up against it tonight to go to Carricknowe and try and come away with something, & the weather was not doing much to help matters, it was cold miserable and rained the whole game not really what a summer sport is all about but it was the same conditions for both teams, two of our teams eventually lost by a few shots & the other 2 by a few more, hard day at the office, lesson learned, onwards & upwards , things can only get better, heads up lads.
