More Jackson Joy

For the second time in a week Central travelled to the neutral green of Old Dagenham, this time to face Fords in the semi-final of the London Park’s Jackson Shield. Three rinks

Things were very close across the three rinks in the first few ends and both teams had a turn with the lead. But by the 9th end the combined scores were level at 25 apiece.

Then Central stepped up the pace with a burst of two 5s on Paul Whellam’s rink then a 4 on Mitch Brenner’s rink. About the same time Fords turned up the heat against Bob Druce’s rink. This still left Central with a healthy 9 shot lead at the halfway point.

Over the next few ends Fords reduced the gap to 6 then a count of 6 on Mitch’s streched the lead again.

In the last third of the match Paul and Mitch’s rinks more than compensated for the troubles Fords were heaping on Bob’s rink. Central’s combined score pushed further and further out in front until the final score finshed 68 – 50 in their favour.

Paul Whellam’s rink won 28-12
Mitch Brenner’s rink won 24-12
Bob Druce’s rink lost 16-26

Central go on to play in the Final at Romford on 14th September.
