Bucks v Hertfordshire 1st December 2019
On Sunday 1st December, Bucks travelled to Potters Bar to play Herts in their fourth Inter County Competition
Having won their previous three games, Herts were looking to repeat their success. At the end of the first session it certainly looked as though they were going to cruise to victory, but this turned out to be a game of two halves.
Both the first two singles games went in favour of the home team, and only the pair of Malcolm Warwick and Paul Knight stopped them from winning all four games. Their score was 18 -
Both the triples games went to the home side but the four of Linda Thompson, Jean McNab, John Thompson and David Gander won with a convincing score of 19 -
Play continued in the second half without a break, and both the Herts singles players managed to overcome their opposition. However, that was just about to change. Malcolm and Paul secured a 17 -
The four of Linda, Jean, John and David won their second game and Tony Rixon, Mathew Orlando, Tony Short and Geoff Ames also won to pick up a further four points plus the bonus points. That left both triples still playing.
Irene Roberts, Ian Forbes and Brian Latham romped home with a score of 23 -
Just one last game to be decided. Peter Coker, Linda Coker and Malcolm Richards were trailing Herts by 17 -
The final score: Hertfordshire 181 shot and 20 points, Bucks 194 shots and 20 points. This was the same result as the previous year, and for Bucks, a good result for an away game.Well played both teams. Bucks now look forward to the return game on Sunday 15th December.
