BUCKS CUP

19th May 2021 - 6pm - Waddesdon - Lost 55-77 (0-14)

This evening we got off to a disappointing start to the Bucks Cup despite the confidence following the good win at Aylesbury on Monday. At home Matthew Crick, Pete Coyne & Paul Rogers got off to a great start going 11-1 ahead after 6 ends however the visitors slowly got back in to the game and by the 15th end we were 15-12 ahead. We then dropped a 4 and despite winning the shot on the 17th end to go in to the last end level we then dropped 2 on the last end to lose 18-16. Daniel Watkins Eddie Chanell & Mark Newman were our other triple at home and they had a tough evening from the start and despite the scores being close for the majority of the game they dropped 10 shots from the last 4 ends to lose 20-9. Ian Ramsay, Roger Crick & Tony Osborne found conditions tricky at Waddesdon however after 11 ends they were a shot behind only to then drop 6 shots from the next 3 ends and despite picking up 5 from the last 2 ends narrowly lost 18-16. Josh Henly, Steve McNeill & Andy Watkins fought back well in their game from 12-3 down they pulled the score back to 13-12 down after 15 ends only to suffer a disastrous end dropping a 5 with 2 ends play and finished up on the wrong side of a 21-14 scoreline. Despite the disappointing result we now put this game behind us and look forward to a double header with Cheddington over the next week with MBL on Friday and the Bucks Cup next Wednesday where we hope to get back to winning ways.

26th May 2021 – Cheddington – Won  92 – 40 (14-0)

This evening we were looking to bounce back from the disappointment of last weeks results against Waddesdon and the MBL result against Cheddington meant that we went in to the game confident of picking up maximum points. Daniel Watkins, Eddie Chanell & Mark Newman led from the start in their game as they went on to win 18-10. Matthew Crick, Pete Coyne & Paul Rogers, also playing at Cheddington, were 7-6 ahead after 9 ends however they then picked up 14 shots from the last 9 ends to win 21-12. Josh Henly, Steve McNeill & Andy Watkins played a great game at home, losing just 5 ends during their game. They also picked up a 6 (Hot Shot) on the 16th end and finished 25-6 winners. Ian Ramsay, Roger Crick & Tony Osborne picked up a 4 on the 1st end to start the game well and a 5 on the 5th end meant that they were 11-1 ahead after 5 ends. They continued to control the game and despite a short comeback by Cheddington, we went on to win 28-12

2nd June 2021 -  Hazells v Princes Risborough - Won 74 - 58 (12-2)

This evening we were looking to follow up on last weeks maximum points when we took on Princes Risborough. Matthew Crick, Pete Coyne & Paul Rogers were playing away and despite going 5-1 down after 4 ends they then only lost 4 more ends during the match, winning 24-15. The other triple away saw Ian Ramsay, Keith Harper & Roger Crick take control of the game early on, picking up a 4 on the 4th end to go 6-2 ahead and from there they went on to win 22-9. At home Josh Henly, Steve McNeill & Andy Watkins had “one of those days” where nothing seemed to come off for them and they ended up losing 23-12. The final game saw Daniel Watkins, Ashley Dean & Mark Newman play out a close game which they won 16-11 to ensure we won 3 of the rinks and the overall score to earn 12 points and keep us in contention of a quarter final spot. 

9th June 2021 - Hazells v Long Crendon - Won 70 - 48 (14-0)

This evening we were back in action against Long Crendon and were looking to better Mondays win against the same opposition in a vital Bucks Cup match. Tonights result was important to ensure that our destiny remained in our own hands in next weeks final group game against Aylesbury Town. Matthew Crick, Pete Coyne & Paul Rogers got off to a good start going 6-2 ahead after 4 ends however by the 12th end the scores were level at 10-10. We then took control of the game, dropping just 1 more shot in the match to win 17-11. Ian Ramsay, Eddie Chanell & Mark Newman were involved in a close game, going behind early on but by the 15th end the scores were level at 11-11. We then picked up 4 shots from the next 2 ends and despite dropping 2 on the last held on for a 15-13 win and 4 points from the home games. Josh Henly, Steve McNeill & Andy Watkins got off to a great start in their game going 7-0 ahead after just 3 ends and despite the home side getting back in to the game and levelling the score at 10-10 after 10 ends we were always confident of controlling the game and we only lost 1 more shot in the game and went on to win 21-11. In the final game Daniel Watkins, Roger Crick & Tony Osborne were 5-2 down after 3 ends however they then picked up 5 shots from the next 2 ends and once they got ahead they never lost the lead again and went on to secure maximum points with a 17-13 win. We now go in to the final game next week 11 points ahead of Aylesbury Town who are in 3rd place, although we won’t be taking qualification for granted and will be looking to finish the group with another good win.

MID BUCKS LEAGUE

17th May 2021 - 6pm - Aylesbury Town – Away - Won 87 - 79 (8-2)

This evening we made the short journey to Aylesbury Town in the first match of our defence of the Mid Bucks League. Despite the heavy storm earlier in the day the game managed to go ahead and despite finding the green quite heavy and some very black skies above we were able to get the game completed with mixed success. Josh Henly, Steve McNeill & Andy Watkins took a few ends to come to terms with the conditions and after 8 ends they were 6-3 down however they then clicked in to gear and only lost 1 more end during the match and went on to earn an important 20-8 win. With a point for each rink won and 5 points for an overall win this was to be an important win. Daniel Watkins, Keith Harper & Paul Rogers started well, going 8-3 ahead after 6 ends and they also controlled their game very well ensuring that, apart from 2 twos, they only dropped single shots on 6 ends. Picking up 5 shots themselves on the 14th end gave them a great lead and they also ran out comfortable winners, 20 – 10. This gave us the 2nd point of the evening and meant we were 22 shots up overall. Andrew MNacKenzie, Pete Coyne & Roger Crick played out a close game, with the scores level at 5-5 after 5 ends we went on to take an 11-6 lead only to drop 9 shots over the next 3 ends. They went in to the last end 21-16 behind and knowing that overall shots could be important they managed to pick up a 4 to finish losing 21-20. Matthew Crick, Eddie Chanell & Tony Osborne picked up 7 shots in the 1st 4 ends, although by the 7th end the scores were level at 7-7. They then only dropped 4 more shots in the match and went on to win 17-11. Ashley Dean, Ian Ramsay & Mark Newman had the toughest evening, picking up just 1 shot in the first 8 ends and conceding 17. Knowing that although their own game was going to be difficult to turn around they knew that overall score was important with 5 points at stake and they kept battling away and ended up losing 29-10 however with the scores from the other rinks putting Hazells 27 shots ahead this 19 shot loss meant we still held on for the overall win and 8 league points. We now move on to Cheddington away on Friday 21st May in match 2 where we need to build on this result win with another good win.

Friday 21st May 2021 – Hazells v Cheddington – Away – Won 151 – 49 (10-0)

Following the win against Aylesbury Town in the Mid Bucks League we went to Cheddington knowing that we needed another win in order to maintain the defence of our title. Having only achieved a draw with them in this competition when we last played them 2 years ago we certainly put Wednesday Bucks Cup disappointment behind us with a maximum points win. Ian Ramsay, Eddie Chanell & Tony Osborone started well in their game but then dropped a 5 on the 5th end to go 7-5 down however they immediately got 3 of those back the next end and then on the 10th end they picked up a 7 and went on to win 32-14. Matthew Crick, Ashely Dean & Mark Newman played out a closer game and at the half way stage they were level at 9-9 however they then picked up 10 shots from the next 6 ends and went on to win 18-12. Steve Goodchild, Pete Coyne & Paul Rogers took control of their game from the start and they only lost 3 ends throughout the match, winning 30-6. George Murdoch, Josh Henly & Steve McNeill found themselves 10-4 down after 10 ends however they then picked up 3 3’s to go 13-10 ahead followed by 8 shots from the last 3 ends to win 21-13. Daniel Watkins, Roger Crick & Andy Watkins couldn’t have asked for a better start picking up 17 shots from the 1st 3 ends and they didn’t lose an end until the 13th end, by which time they were already 42-0 ahead and they went on to win 50-4

7th June 2021 - 6pm - Long Crendon - Home - Won - 106 - 64 (8-2)

This evening we were back in Mid Bucks League action at home to Long Crendon and following our previous 2 wins were looking to continue our winning run. Daniel Watkins, Tony Osborne & Roger Crick controlled their game from the start going 13-2 ahead after 8 ends and they only lost 5 ends during the game which they won 23-7. Matthew Crick, Pete Coyne & Paul Rogers picked up a 5 on the 3rd end to take a 6-1 lead but unfortunately it went downhill from there, winning just 4 more ends and losing 16-11. Josh Henly, Steve McNeill & Andy Watkins dropped a 3 on the first end but soon got in front after picking up a 6 on the 5th end and from there they controlled the game well and went on to win 34-11. Ian Ramsay, Eddie Chanell & Mark Newman looked to be in control of their game when they were 10-3 ahead after 7 ends and by the 13th end they were still 7 shots ahead, 15–8 however they then lost the last 5 ends and ended up losing the game 18-15. Tony Brindley, Ashley Dean & Keith Harper lost the first 3 ends however they then started to get in to the game and by the 7th end were 8-5 ahead. They then picked up 12 shots from the next 5 ends and went on to win 23-12. This result meant a 3rd win and 8 league points and a confidence boost before Wednesdays Bucks Cup game against the same opposition.

This morning we played our 1st round match at home to Amersham and Daniel Watkins, Josh Henly, Steve McNeill & Andy Watkins took control of their game early on and were 10-3 ahead after 9 ends and by the time they reached the 15th and final end they had won 17-8. Matthew Crick, George Murdoch, Keith Harper & Roger Crick played out a much tougher game and after 6 ends were 8-2 down. Having seen how the other rink were doing we then picked up 5 shots from the next 3 ends to close the gap and when we picked up a 3 on the 14th end to level the score at 11-11 we didn’t need to complete the game as were already 9 ahead from the result on the other rink. We will now face Waddesdon in the next round.
