SHIPLAKE won their opening Indoor Secretary Cup group match at Rivermead on Wednesday evening of last week when they defeated TRENTHAMS 66-48, winning on all three rinks.
In a game that changed the lead several times Graham Kennedy’s triple were behind with four ends to play but then rallied to finish two to the good.
Daphne Jacob was all square at the half-way mark and it was only in the last few ends that she pulled away to win by six.
Some good front end bowling from Sue Reid kept Shiplake in a close match where only six shots were shared over the first five ends. Some big scores put Shiplake in the driving seat to coast home by 10.
Scores (Shiplake names): J Webb, J Munnelly, G Kennedy 20-18; M Belcher, W Cross, D Jacob 21-15; S Reid, G Clinch, D Webb 25-15.
