Cup action sees Kirby Bedon & Framingham Earl win

Kirby Bedon were protecting a big 20-4 first leg lead when they visited Horsford Heroes for their Bure Cup first round second leg tie. The home side knew a good start was essential to give them any chance while on the other hand Kirby wanted to put this game to bed as early as possible to avoid any chance of an upset. The first session saw Kirby’s Carol Aggas, David Blundell & John Aggas beat a strong home triple of Derek Gaskin, Mick Dale & Vic Webster 8-2 and despite a loose last end Teresa Goldsmith, Tony Oram & Selwyn Goldsmith added a second win beating Andy Drummie’s triple 6-4. This left Kirby needing just one point to complete their win and clinch a second round tie against either Halvergate or Horsford BC. The second session saw Kirby’s triples cross the finishing line in style with Jill Watson, Gerald Chilvers & Phil Watson winning 6-3 against David Crosby’s triple while Alice Payne, David Neil & Geoff Payne beat Chris Woodhouse by 8-5. In the Norwich Cup Framingham Earl made a great start at home to Harling Rec with Brian Sayer, Ray Kidd & Debbie Bunn beating Steve Easter’s triple 12-5 while Margaret Reynolds, Malcolm Reynolds & Glenda Adcock won by 8-4 against Matt Cunningham. Harling responded well from this early setback as they won both pairs games to level the match, Maureen Tarrent & Mike Tarrent winning 5-4 and G Hume & Jill Hayman winning 8-6. Framingham Earl’s triples promptly restored their lead with a 10-6 win for Debbie Bunn and an 8-6 win for Glenda Adcock. In the last session the visitor’s pairs failed to repeat their first half success as they both went down leaving Framingham Earl winners by 12-4.
