Ups and downs at East Horsley

For the latest in our midweek matches, on Wednesday 26th we travelled to East Horsley for a match of three triples. A hot and sunny afternoon beckoned and, of course, I’d left my hat at home.

Merrow started well, with all rinks winning ends. However, things started to go wrong for your correspondent’s rink as East Horsley started to move ahead, often winning ends that we felt could have been ours. Fortunately, the other two rinks were faring much better, as they fought hard to maintain a lead.

Stopping for tea and cakes at nine ends was a welcome relief from the heat, and we all started the next half with renewed vigour.

The end result was an overall win for East Horsley, with a score of 60-44. However, Merrow won two of the three rinks, with Lorna, Andy, and Ken being our top rink with a score of 22-13. Well done to both rinks.

We only play East Horsley once a year, so we look forward to welcoming them to Merrow in 2020, when we hope for an improved result.
