Cornwall 1st v Hampshire, 28.2.10

It was the last match of the season, and the team needed at least a point to be safe from relegation, with a full side for the very first time this season, they took on the travelling Hampshire players.

Fortified by Jo’s mum’s famous quiche, the Cornish men stormed to a 2 nil lead in the singles, although the girls lost out to 2 talented Hants under 16s, with Claire taking the 2nd girl to 3 ends.

The men continued their fine form in the doubles. Both pairs of James and Guy and Kelvin and Tom winning their games easily.

Jo and Rachel beat the 2nd girls pair, with Jo taking the lead following Rachel’s leg injury hampering her movement, and Claire and Bronwen just lost out to the same Hants girls in the 3rd end.

So, it was 7-5 to Cornwall going into the mixed, one more game needed for a win.

Guy and Rachel charged to 2 easy ends to set up the win, James and Jo came through in 3 ends – James in particularly impressive form, and finally, Captain Kelvin and Bronwen secured all 3 points and an excellent overall 10 – 5 win.

With this win, the season ends, the team stay in Division 3 and look forward to another successful season.

Team – Kelvin Edwards, James Whetter, Guy Michell, Tom Lyle, Jo Philp, Rachel Irish, Bronwen Wotton, Claire Whitmore.
