Forncett just one point adrift

In Division Two of the Summer League only five points now separate the top four teams as the battle for the two promotion spots heats up. It was a busy time for Forncett and their results moved them just one point behind the top two Horsford Heroes & Watton. It could have been much better for them if they had not slipped to a surprise 5-3 home defeat against Windows who collected only their second win of the campaign. Windows triple Maureen Dease, Ken Dease & Keith Halford opened with a 17-10 win against Linda Preece’s triple and with Brenda Sizer & Diane Halford substituting for the Deases in the second half Keith Halford beat Rebecca Humphreys 17-11. Mike Boswell’s triple held Peter Lock’s triple to a 15-15 draw ensuring a rare away win for Windows. Forncett also drew 4-4 at Shropham but a maximum 8-0 win at Hingham improved their title hopes. Peter Lock’s triple won their games by 20-6 & 18-8 while Linda Preece won by 15-11 & 15-12. In Division One Diss & Kirby Bedon now face a fight for survival in the top flight where they are the only teams yet to record a league win. Kirby Bedon went down 6-2 at home to Deaf Sports despite Jill Watson, John Aggas & Phil Watson opening with a 29-3 win against Laura Hawksworth’s Deaf Sports triple. Gillian Amos, Rob Cranston & Robin Amos scored wins of 19-12 & 16-9 for the visitors. Kirby also went down 8-0 at Wymondham where Jack Pye & Chris Mann skipped their triples to two wins apiece. Diss went to Thorpe Marriott and held the home side to a 4-4 draw. Terry Newby & Russell Davidson skipped their Diss triples to a win each while John Jarvis and Tony Turner were Marriott’s winning skips. Chris Mann skipped his triple to wins of 21-9 & 17-9 at Deaf Sports in Wymondham’s 6-2 win.
