Bedfordshire Fours Competition
The County Fours took place on
a snowy Sunday, so firstly well done to all for turning up.
The twelve teams were in two
groups of 6 with the top two going from each to qualify .
There were some close matches
in the groups but the semi-finals saw the Colmworth four of Mike
Walker playing Ann Denton's mixed four from Toddington, with
the second being David Whitfield from Toddington playing Keith
Cockings from Turvey.
The first Semi saw Colmworth
victorious by 9 shots to 4, while the other was a close affair
with Toddington edging the match 8-5 (promise no mention of David
wickey Whitfield oops I did).
Colmworth were represented by Pat Bunch, Brenda & Peter Bol
and Mike Walker while the Toddington four were Roy Hawkins, John
O'Brien and Gill & Daivd Whitfield.
The first end was a little wayward
but Colmworth picked up 2 shots while the 2nd saw the Colmworth
skip in trouble but managing to hold shot after his last wood,
only to see a running bowl take his shot out and roll in for
a single to Toddington, 2 1 to Colmworth.
The third end saw Toddington
score 3 shots on a wayward end of bowls, taking them into a 4-2
The fourth saw Toddington holding
three when the Colmworth skip tried the If in doubt
give it a clout option, with some success taking
two shots to level the score at 4-4.
The 5th saw a single go to Toddington
to regain the lead, but it was the sixth end which was pivotal.
A fantastic bowl from the Colmworth skip saw them take 4 shots
and jump into an 8-5 lead.
After that they picked singles
on both the 7th and 8th ends to take a 10-5 lead into a final
end which was a little wild but Toddington could only pick up
2 shots to finish 7-10 down.
Well done to the Colmworth Four.
