This evening Ann Ramsay, Sue Watkins, Karen Seegoolam & Carol Crick started their group games at home to Princes Risborough. This was a tight game which saw us pick up a 5 early on, only to drop the same score the following end. We managed to extend our lead and went into the last end 18-15 ahead and despite dropping a 2, we held on for the win. For some reason this was our only home game of the group stage and so we next play at Aston Clinton next Thursday evening.
10th June 2021 v Aston Clinton - Lost 18 - 9
Having won their opening match last week the team went in to this game knowing that another good performance would put themselves in a great position to qualify from their group. Ann Ramsay, Sue Watkins, Karen Seegoolam & Carol Crick soon found themselves behind in the match, struggling to come to terms with the green. In a game where they were always playing catch up this was to be a disappointing night for our ladies as they lost 18-9

Wendover then picked up a 4 on the 10th end to level the game at 9-9 however we then won the last 5 remaining ends to get back to winning ways and we now move on to Cheddington next week, looking to pick up another valuable win.

The ladies were at home to Iver Heath on Saturday morning for the next round of the Top Club and this was to be a really close game. In the singles Teresa Newman was playing Rachael Efde and was behind for most of the game however she kept battling throughout and ended up losing 21-12.

In the triples Zoe Watkins, Joan Sweetman & Inger McNeill got off to a great start in their game and they controlled the match throughout and got the 2nd point on the board for Hazells. Ann Ramsay, Anne Farmer, Naomi Hooper & Carol Crick had a much tougher fight on their hands and they went in to the last end losing on their rink but knowing that they needed 3 shots to force an extra end and with just Iver’s last bowl to play we were holding 4 shots however the Iver Heath then managed to find a way in to pick up shot and give Iver Heath the win on shot difference.

17th May 2021 v Thame - Home - 2.30pm - Lost 38 - 52
This afternoon we welcomed 3 ladies triples from Thame in a game cut short by the weather. Liz Goodchild, Marion Garrett & Anne Farmer found themselves 16-2 down after just 6 ends and so this was going to be a heavy deficit to come back from however they then picked up a 3 followed by a 6 to close the gap but it was just too big a gap and they lost 21-16. Margaret, Joan & Ann Richardson played out a close game for the first 11 ends however they then dropped 9 shots over the last 4 ends to lose 18-9. Sue Watkins, Karen Seegoolam & Ann Ramsay were involved in a very tight game and despite going 8-3 down after 6 ends they fought back well and were 10-8 ahead after 9 ends. Although they only won 2 of the last 6 ends they managed to hold on for a 13-13 draw.
26th May 2021 – Hazells v Cheddington – Lost 46 - 44
This afternoon 3 ladies triples were warmly greeted at Cheddington Bowls club to play the next friendly game of the season.
On rink 3 was Margaret Olliffe, Marion Garrett and Ann Richardson. Who having won the first 2 ends were even until end 7 when Cheddington got 5 to double their score. It was not till end 14 that Hazells scored again and eventually lost 9-22.
Leila Brindley, Ann Ramsay, and Joan Sweetman, at Skip for the first time on rink 5, started off wining the first 3 ends. They then had a very close game, ending with a result that summed up their afternoon with a final score of 12-12
A very different game again was being played on the rink 1, where Liz Goodchild, Sue Watkins and Anne Farmer took three ends to warm up, then scored 5, which started them off in good stead. They then went 4 ends for Cheddington to even up at 6 all. From then on, they had the upper hand winning all but 4 ends and finished with a score of 23-12. This did not quite outweigh the deficit of rink 3 and it was all on the last end which they lost by 2 meaning Cheddington won by 2 shots
14th June 2021 v Aylesbury Town - Home - Won 54 - 41
This evening our ladies hosted Aylesbury Town for a rare evening friendly and this enabled some of our working ladies to get a game. Zoe Watkins had another great game with Naomi Hooper & Judy Rogers and despite only picking up 2 shots from the first 7 ends they never lost heart and battled back to win 21-9, which included 11 shots from the last 4 ends. Liz Goodchild, Karen Seegoolam & Anne Farmer got off to a flying start in their game, going 7-0 ahead after 5 ends and despite dropping 5 on the 9th end they never lost the lead and went on to win 18-13. Marion Garrett, Sue Watkins & Joan Sweetman started the better in their game however on the 8th end the tide turned as they dropped a 6 to go 11-7 down and from there they were always battling to get back in to the game. Despite licking up 6 shots from the last 3 ends this was just not quite enough as they lost 19-15.

24th August 2021 v Aston Clinton - Away - Lost 29 - 17
Today the ladies went to Aston Clinton to play 2 triples in the last ladies friendly of the season.
Sheila Lawlor, Ellen Livett and Ann Ramsey took a few ends to get to grips with the weight of the green but by the ninth end the score was even at 8 all. By this time, it had become a very hot afternoon and the heat was taking its toll, so it was decided to finish at 15 ends. They managed to stay within striking distance but were just beaten in the last two ends and lost by 3 shots.
On the other rink Margaret Olliffe, Marion Garret and Anne Farmer also took a while to cope with the weight of the green but by the eighth end had levelled up the score, they then lost 5 shots in the next 2 ends, with the heat increasing and rapidly few ends to catch up, despite scoring another 2 shots the final score at 15 ends found them down by 9 shots.
Despite the loss all the ladies enjoyed the afternoon and I feel sure look forward to the ladies’ friendlies next season.
