Jablonowski's win Coastal Pairs in style

All the clubs were represented in this year’s Pairs Competition, each club fielding two teams. Four pairs competed in the Round Robin on each mat.  Mat One winners were the Hemsby Beachcombers’ duo of Gail and Mick Hodgson, winning all their games with an impressive 6 points.  Runners up were Anne and Keith Baker, from Woodbastwick Eagles.  A much closer result on Mat Two saw Woodbastwick Owls’ Jenny Walker and Ted Sims just running out winners with only shot difference giving them the edge over Mavis Squires and Carol Illingworth from Bradwell Robins.  Mat Three saw Peter Goode and Iris Buchannon from Martham beat the second place pair of Eagles’ Doreen Scarff and Alan Goodhew by 5 points to 4.  On Mat Four the Owls pair Norma and Peter Jablonowski stormed to a 6 point win with Mo Boreham and Jackie Fortescue from Bradwell Robins coming second with 4 points. Both semi-finals were extremely close, the Jabonowski's scraping into the final by one shot against Peter and Iris, and after 8 ends, the score on the other mat was even, 5-5, so Gail and Mick had to play another end against Jenny and Ted and came through by 2 shots.

As usual the re-positioning of the mat was a key factor in the final, Norma and Peter Jablonowski were both very accurate, overcoming Gail and Mick Hodgson by 11 shots to 2.
