Victory in Johns Trophy
Johns Trophy Win for Warwickshire Ladies
Warwickshire set out their stall in the opening Johns Trophy match against Herefordshire on Saturday with a 130-93 win giving them the maximum 22 points.
The highest winning rink was claimed by Janet Scott with Di Green (both Sherwood Park), Patsy Tandy (Southam) and Helen Slimm (Wellesbourne) with a 29-18 win.
Maureen Tims (Whitnash) with Di Medhurst (Stoke), Gill Maund (Sherwood Park) and Di Thurlbeck (Lillington) set off slowly but 5 shots on the 10th end helped them to pull ahead and whilst they were level pegging most of the way another 5 shots on the last end ensured a 23-15 win.
Liz Chedgzoy (Stratford) with Kirsty Richards (Bournville), Pat Bax (Rugby Ladies) and Trish Jarvis (Wolvey) were close behind with a 22-14 win.
Moira Parsons with Ann Webb (both Welford), Di Wilkinson (Stoke) and Pat Moore (3 Spires) started slowly but 5 shots on the 6th end gave them a boost and they managed to pull ahead to a 21-17 win.
Jenny Corn with Jacqui Cook (both Lillington), Brenda Carlton (3 Spires) and Elaine Taylor (Stoke) kept the pressure on their opponents and were 8-3 up on the 10th end, but a 5 shot loss on the 14th end brought them level – however the team was not to be beaten and took 7 shots over the 18th and 19th ends to enable them to finish 18-15.
Maureen Edwards with Sigrid Thomas and Jamie-Lea Winch (all Rugby Thornfield), and Helen Harris (Stoke) were well down for the first half of the game lying 5-13 at 13 ends but sheer determination together with a 4 shot win on the 15th end enabled them to pull back and they eventually finished with a 17-14 win.
County President, Maureen Edwards, was delighted to present Johns Flashes to three of her team – Patsy Tandy, Helen Slimm and Pat Bax.
