Warwickshire get the better of Worcestershire

Stratford Editorial 17th Jul, 2018   0

WARWICKSHIRE women built on their Johns Trophy victory over Worcestershire with another win over the same opposition in a friendly at Kidderminster’s Chester Road.

Worcestershire’s determination to earn revenge was never in doubt, but Warwickshire had too much and won 128-96.

Highest winning Warwickshire rink went to Debbie Bloxham (Stratford) with county president Joy Cooke (Blossomfield), Jayne Henfrey (Lillington) and Liz Westell (Welford), who started at a pace which never faltered, finishing a resounding 31-7.

Barbara Jeffrey with Margaret Andrew, Karen Rice (all Studley Entaco) and Ros Taylor (Avenue Coventry) were fairly evenly matched to start and, although the opposition pulled away to lead 12-7 at 14 ends, four shots on each of the 16th, 18th and 21st ends ensured a convincing 22-15 win for the away team.

Helen Harris (Stoke) with Hazel Goodman (Lillington), Heather Tredgold (Southam) and Heather Mills (Grange Ladies) kept their heads above water most of the game and steadily worked their way towards a 23-19 win.

Pat Gagg with Pat Harvey, Pippa Mace (all Lillington) and Rosemarie Geden (Southam) started slowly but kept levelling the game until the last few ends when they took the initiative and pulled ahead to win 17-16.

Jean Williams (Stratford) with Sharon Keal (Snitterfield), Chris Ward (Lillington) and Donna Kerr (RLS) started strongly and were 15-4 up at ten ends but their opponents were not going to be walked all over and pulled back to leave the visitors winning just 19-18.

Chris Cooke with Velisa Brown (both Southam), Mo Yeomans (Blossomfield) and Jenny Corn (Lillington) were fairly evenly matched and, although they pulled ahead in the latter part of the game, they were unable to retain the advantage and lost 21-16.

Warwickshire were beaten by just seven shots by Devon in the Regional Finals of the Walker Cup at Weston-super-Mare on Sunday.
