We were full to capacity with
45 teams on the 9 mats that we squeezed into the Centre.
The group winners and 7 best
runners-up would go through to the Knockout Stages.
Only one point separated the top 4 teams in the group but it
was The Try Hards and Somersham with 5 points each
that squeezed through.
Me Her Him won all
of their games to win the group while PJ's were second
with two wins and a draw.
Team Thatch topped
the group with maximum points and Sadways were second
with just one loss.
Hoggards One won, finishing with 3 wins and a loss. Bicycle
Repair Men only won twice and lost the other two but they
picked up enough shots on the last end of their last game to
qualify as the 7th best runners-up.
A Team Has No Name
were undefeated, dropping just one point. None of the 3 teams
who finished on 4 points did enough to get through.
Los Pollos Hermanos lost
their last game but had already done enough to win the group.
Owl and the Pussycats and Elmo both finished on 5 points
but Owl won out on shots.
2 Davenham won all
four games comfortably while The Good, Bad & Chairman
lost one game.
Hunters Gatherers finished
on 6 points. The rest of the points were shared pretty evenly
among the other 4 teams which meant that none of them got through.
Back Again won all
their games while Boys on their Own were just the best
of the 3 teams who won 2 and lost 2.
A Team Has No Name
were 4-0 up over PJ's after just one end and came home
to an 11-4 win.
Los Pollos Hermanos led from the start to beat Sadways
Bicycle Repair Men and 2 Davenham went into their
last end 3-3, and it was the RepairMen who took one for the win.
Hunters Gatherers took 4 on the first end and ran away
to a 15-2 win over Owl and the Pussycats.
Back Again came from behind against The Good,
Bad & Chairman to take a 6-3 win.
Boys on their Own took all 6 from The Try Hards on the
second end and were never challenged as they won 13-2.
Me Him Her were 4-1 down to Somersham
with 3 ends to go but somehow picked up 7 one the last 3 ends
to win 8-4.
It was only 4-2 to Team
Thatch against Hoggards One after 5 ends but Thatch
took 4 on the penultimate end to virtually end the match which
they won 8-5.
Team Thatch only managed
to win a single end as they lost out to A Team Has No Name
Los Pollos Hermanos dropped a 3 to Me Her Him midway
through their game which proved crucial. They had the game won
on the final end until it was snatched away with the final wood
for Me Her Him to win 5-3.
There was never more than a
shot between Bicycle Repair Men and Hunters Gatherers
but it was the Repair Men who snuck in again to win 5-4.
Boys on their Own won the first 3 ends to get a 5-0
lead over Back Again which held them in good stead to
a 7-3 win.
It was close between the Bicycle Repair Men and Boys in
their Own, at 4 ends it was 3-3 but 2 good ends for the Repair
Men saw them leap ahead and win the game 8-5.
Me Her Him edged away from A Team Has No Name
early on but it needed the very final wood of the game to take
shot and rescue what was a losing position to win 5-2.
Me Her Him v Bicycle Repair Men
End 1 Andy's final wood saved 3 shots to restrict Me Her
Him to just 1
End 2 No one much troubled the jack until Andy's last
wood, but even that moved the jack to remain just a 2 shot count
to the Repair Men who led 2-1.
End 3 - Me Her Him start better and this time Andy is too eager,
misses with his last wood and Don gets in for a fourth, 5-2.
End 4 Roy gets the jack loose and with the next wood the
Repair Men put a bit too much on and take the jack off, 7-2.
End 5 Andy goes from several down to one and then two
up, 7-4, maybe it's not yet over.
End 6 Or maybe it is, Don goes from one down to two up
with his last. 9-4
Final End Jenny's first wood is on the jack and her second
is just behind. Me Her Him end up taking another 4 to win 13-4.
