Parker & Davidson on fire

Hempnall’s Roger Parker & Neil Davidson were on fire at Connaught as they stormed to a decisive 30-2 pairs win. In the Tens League, where only total shots determine the points, any hopes Connaught had of a win were more or less dead in the water at this stage. Lewis Cranston & Paul Baker piled on the agony in the other pairs game with a 20-9 win and Richard Harrowing’s triple added a 13-7 win in the triples. Connaught did taste success on one mat with Joe LiRocchi’s triple winning 16-12 but it had no effect on the result as Hempnall collected a maximum 4-0 win. In their next home match Connaught entertained Halvergate and once again suffered a massive reverse in the pairs as Halvergate’s Robbie & David Lamb produced a 25-6 win. Simon Warnes’ triple added a 10-8 win but the home side fought back to win in the other two games. Elaine & Bob Oatway won 18-7 in the other pairs game and Joe LiRocchi’s triple won 14-11 to restrict Halvergate to a 2-0 points win. Hevingham won their first Tens League match of the season at home to Kirby Bedon despite only winning on one mat. In the first half Phil Watson’s triple won 14-11 for the visitors while Teresa & Selwyn Goldsmith picked up five shots on the last end to draw 16-16 against Rex Cox & David Sharpe. After the break Alan Bunn’s triple were held to an 11-11 draw by Terry Newby’s triple but the match was decided by Hevingham’s pairing of Pat Williamson & Steve Hall who earned a 2-0 win by beating Shirley & Joe Brown 19-7.
