Inter County Competitions

Northants v Bucks

On Sunday 16th September, Bucks travelled to Daventry IBC to play Northants in the return leg of the Inter County Competition, hoping to consolidate their success of the previous week when Northants came to Handy Cross.

Malcolm Warwick  and David Gander opened the tally with double figures scores in their singles games and Sharon Drake and Arnie Jaffe won their pairs.

Barry Somers, Mervyn Wilson and John Thompson won their triples game as did Joan Northcott, Brenda Gander and Kevin Dwyer, along with Rosie Millard, Peter Clarke, Tony Short and Chris Millard in the fours.

The score at the half way stage was 12 points to 4 in favour of Bucks.

After the break, Malcolm and David both played sublimely to secure all 8 points plus the bonus with some clinical bowling.

It was then the turn of Ann and Bob Hine to win their pairs game and with sufficient shots to win the bonus points in that discipline.

Geoff Ames stood in for Mervyn Wilson in the second triples which they won comfortably and Joan, Brenda and Kevin snuck a win in the last end taking 1 shots to secure the result and the bonus points.

Rosie, Peter, Tony and Chris romped home with a 20-6 scoreline and Peter Coker, Lyn Dancer, Linda Coker and Ian Forbes rounded off the scoring with a win and the bonus points.

The final scores were: Bucks 223 shots and 34 points, Northants 149 shots and 6 points.

Well done Bucks, another pleasing result.
