MIRAFLORES MAY 28TH OPEN 2 WOOD PAIRS
On 28th May, Miraflores BC continued to stage a popular, bi-weekly, one day, 2 wood pairs sets. The format consisted of the now familiar sets of 7 ends, with 3 groups playing a round robin. The winning pairs of each group in the round robin phase scored points as follows:-
Alan Turner & Terry Morgan 15
Dudley Calder & Brenda Collier 13
Jeff Turner & Andy Salmon 12
If Simone Morgan & Jordan Ali had won the tie-break on the last game, 4 teams would have finished the round robin with 12 points! However they failed to do so, which let Dudley Calder & Brenda Collier go through to the final play-off. This still left 3 teams with 12 points and 3rd place went to Jeff Turner & Andy Salmon on count back.
The final play-off once more proved a cliff hanger, with Alan & Terry beating Dudley & Brenda a resounding 7-1 shots in the first set. Dudley & Brenda bounced back in the 2nd set with a close 6-5 shots win. The deciding tie-breaker went to the 3 ends, with Dudley & Brenda the final victors.
Thanks were given to the sponsors, Miraflores BC, for their generosity in providing the prize money and to Craig, Sandra, Heather & Lynne, for outstanding catering support.
