BINTON A topped the scoring tables by hitting only bulls and fours as they scored 232 points in their Stratford & District Airgun League match against MEB.

This included maximum points (35) shot by Andy Smith and Will Cemis and season-best scores of 33 points for Gary Hooper and Neil Beningfield.

MEB shot fours and bulls, with Tim Onions shooting a season-best of 32, and 31 points were scored by Sam Dunn to equal his personal best score since he started shooting this season.

MEB only had six shooters and had to rely on an A N Other score of 28 for their 210 points.

Unstoppable Wilmcote also shot bulls and fours to win their ninth match in a row with 227 points against Avenue B.

Wilmcote’s top scorers were the Clarke brothers – Jamie and Adam – and the Clingan brothers – Paul and Andrew – all of whom shot 33s.

Avenue struggled throughout the match but captain Jackie Mills and Irene Parsons, who have not been shooting recently due to health problems, returned to the side and Mills managed to shoot a season-best of 31.

Avenue A took the lead in their match against Binton B but some weak shots led to the match being a close-run thing.

Paul Lowe shot 34 for the home team, Steve Parrack 33 and new shooter this season Sam Brisley shot a personal best of 32.

Binton’s best shot was Chris Green with 32 and Ben Chamberlain kept out of the threes for 30 but, at the end of the night after scratching their lowest score, Binton finished on 203, which was not quite enough to beat Avenue’s 204 points.

Avon also had only fours and bulls on the target in their match against Clifford.

Colin Fulford started with a 4 but went on to get six bulls for 34 and Bill Fleming and Steve Ray both shot 32 which helped bring the team’s final score line-up to 219.

Clifford had difficulty settling to the target and their best shot was 30 from Ian Perkins.

Clifford mustered 198 points but it was not enough to win the match.
