Battles in the Bure

Horsford Heroes scored their fourth win from five games to keep their Bure League title challenge on track. A tight first half against visitors Woodbastwick left the teams tied on points at the break but with Woodbastwick leading by three shots. Horsford’s Richard Hart, David Claxton & Roger Frank won by 13-8 against Peter Jablonowski’s triple and Woodbastwick replied with a solid 18-10 win by Matthew Mills, Elaine Cole & Lianne Mills against Linda Chadwick, Richard Dix & Sue Fox. The second half was a different story though as Horsford Heroes took complete control. David Davitt, Mick Dale & Chris Woodhouse beat Margaret Harman’s triple 26-5 while Carol Aggas, David Brown & John Aggas beat Willie Jefferies’ triple 19-9 to earn Horsford Heroes an 8-2 home win.  After a poor start to their campaign that had resulted in three defeats and a draw, Hevingham finally found that winning formula at East Tuddenham. The visitors edged a slight first half lead with Teresa Goldsmith, Marjorie Hall & Selwyn Goldsmith beating Jean Woods, Robert Howlett & Melly Woods 18-10. The home side won on the other mat with Billie Barker, Melvyn Barker & Chris Mann beating Richard Moore, Joyce Vincent & Maurice Kemp 16-12 but the home triple had held a huge lead before a great comeback by Kemp’s triple enabled the visitors to go into the break four shots up.

The remaining game went down to the last bowl with Tuddenham’s Elaine Willies, Simon Willies & John Turner snatching a 14-13 win against Pat Williamson, Pat Hall & Steve Hall. This left Hevingham celebrating a 6-4 away win to kickstart their season. In their next game Hevingham won 8-2 at Horsford BC after a great second half.
