El Cid Bowl­ing Club

Costa Levante News - - LOCAL SPORT -

Vis­i­tors go home with nine points at El Cid De­spite a lot of heavy overnight rain, the El Cid Green held up and was very playable as El Cid wel­comed Javea Green in the Win­ter League.

It was the away team that got off to a good start and af­ter six ends Javea were ahead on all rinks.

How­ever, El Cid fought back and de­spite the points go­ing 9­3 in Javea favour there were three very close games.

What to say about Rink 2 is best left on the Green! Rink 3 saw Pat Met­calfe and her ladies fight a tight game against Jack Wardrop but a 3 shots on the last end was not enough and lost 12­13.

Rink 4 had Yvonne Bri­dens strong all ladies team take the lead af­ter 6 ends and kept it to fin­ish win­ners by 18­11 against Alan Philips team (you had to feel for Alan as the only man on that rink)

Rink 5 kept ev­ery­one on edge be­ing the last rink to fin­ish. Paul Leed­ers team lead­ing by one shot af­ter 17 ends and hold­ing shot, which Brian Manser moved to leave Javea with one shot. Paul was hav­ing none of this and with his last bowl re­turned the favour draw­ing shot in­side Brian’s. As we held our breath Brian sent a great bowl to edge out Paul and take the end to square the game at 13 – 13

Rink 6 saw El Cid strug­gling 18­7 down af­ter 13 ends but a 12 shots fight­back over the last 5 ends was not enough for Clive Scotts team who lost 2219.

The Ber­leen team skipped by John Ol­liffe won 8 ends to gain 15 shots but lost out to David Ings team who had a good mid­dle sec­tion scor­ing 11 shots over 5 ends to take a 22­ 15 win.

Win­ter League Cap­tain Derek Ran­dall took some com­fort from the close games against a very ex­pe­ri­enced and strong Javea Team. El Cid now sit in 6th place and are home to Emer­ald Isle next week.
