The Triple of Marilyn Bennet/Glenyce King/John Curd started well and built up a good 5-0 lead after five ends and although the home team came back the Red team Triple were able to hold on to win the match 6-4
It proved a good first session and this was carried on by the Pair of John Ames & Greg King who started well and built up a good 6-2 lead after five ends against a strong Prettygate Pair Again the Red team pair were able to hold on and win another close match 7-6
The Red team Four of Carol Curd/Linda Spinks/Gary Owen/Ray Spinks were involved in yet another close match but this time just lost out 7-8 on the last end
It leaves the Red team at the top of the Tens league having played all of their matches, but they can be caught when the other outstanding matches are played
Additionally in the main Colchester West league the Red team remain top again having played all matches

However the home team made up ground in the next two ends with Highwoods leading 7-6 going into the last end. Good bowling by the Red team allowed them to take shot and win a close match 8-6.
The first Pair of Gill Spurgeon & Diane Orrin saw a similar pattern with the score 4-4 after six ends. A good seventh end saw the advantage to the Red team taking 4 shots, but a rally on the eighth end narrowed the lead to 8-6 going into the last end. With the home team holding two shots a draw looked highly likely but a fabulous last bowl by Diane took shot and won the game 9-6.
The second session saw the Red team Pair of Marilyn Bennet & Greg King initially involved in a close match leading 5-3 after six ends. However a strong finish by Marilyn & Greg saw them take 13 shots on the last three ends to win the match comfortably 18-3
The second Four of Carol Curd/Ray Spencer/Gary Owen & Peter Orrin started their match in style leading 7-0 after two ends. The home team never recovered and never looked likely to, with the Red team winning comfortably 10-6
The league season is now finished for the Red team and they are top of the league. Their final placing will depend upon the results of others but they still have an outside chance of winning the league, but a good chance of the runners up spot.

It was all up to the second pair of Gill Spurgeon & Peter Orrin and in an exceptional & close match it was anybodies match going into the last end.
