Cadoxton v Ystrad Mynach - ML4 (Saturday, June 7)
Cadoxton were the hosts to Ystrad Mynach, on a fine afternoon, for the opening game in a ML4. The outcome was a narrow defeat with two winning rinks and two losing. Unfortunately Howard Craven became ill half way through the game and had to finish playing. As there were no available reserves to replace him the game finished with the away side holding a 7 shot advantage. Don Kuhnell’s rink, were 8 shots down without scoring after 4 ends. However a ‘4’ on the next brought them back into the game and on the 10th end went one shot in front. They lost the next two ends but then took over completing the game without conceding another shot. Kelvin Chedgzoy trailed for most of the game on his rink. They did briefly take the lead on the 13th end by one shot, but relinquished it by losing the next three. Nevertheless they fought their way back with four wins out of the five last ends, including a ‘6’ on the penultimate end to claim another two points. John Jones had a terrible time on his rink. With the scores tied after 6 ends the next 11 ends were lost. A mini recovery of three winning ends brought them to within one shot of the match aggregate, but sadly a ‘3’ was conceded to lose the match overall by four shots.
