IT PROVED a case of so near yet so far for the ladies of Chal­font St Giles BC in their Burn­ham Plate quar­ter-fi­nal with Loud­wa­ter this week.

Af­ter a slow start St Giles’ quar­tet of Flora Alder­ton, Liz Bald­win, Lyn Car­roll and Mo Hard­ing built up a six-shot lead only for Loud­wa­ter to hit back and take the win 23-17.

There was bet­ter news in the lat­est Chiltern & Thames League game where Marlow were beaten for the sec­ond time this sea­son, the 29-10 rink vic­tory for Candi Ivey, Hard­ing and Rob Kirby help­ing to se­cure a 63-52 win and eight points.

The Thames Val­ley League game played home and away against Cip­pen­ham was lost though, from which they earned just two points. The Three Coun­ties League visit to hold­ers Hare­field Hos­pi­tal BC proved equally chal­leng­ing and de­spite two wins on the five rinks, in­clud­ing a 2715 suc­cess for Joyce Cripps, Brian Hed­ley, Dave Hard­ing Ian McLeod, they went down 108-87. Mean­while the week’s four friendlies saw wins over Ger­rards Cross (54-35) and Wex­ham (92-50) balanced by losses to Uxbridge (71-60) and Wen­dover (118-75).
