On Saturday, 6th July, Sully Sports, with a much weakened side, made the long uphill trip to Beaufort for their latest PGI fixture, were in an uphill struggle from the 1st end, and suffered probably there heaviest defeat in years, going down by 41-114 shots.

On the great form Beaufort showed in this game, they must be certainties to be promoted at the end of the season.

K Aguis’ rink won a shot on the 1st end, , conceded 19 shots over the next 7 ends, before staging a minor fightback, by winning 7 of the last 12 ends, but scored too lightly to pull back the deficit, going down eventually by 17 shots.

B Matthews’ rink also won the 1st end, but could only manage 4 more successful ends, to sink to a defeat by 10-31.

C Coomber’s rink were level after 4 ends, but conceded 12 shots in the next 3, and although the game was more even for the remaining ends, they could not close the gap to lose 14-26.

As well as skip G Brown bowled, his rink managed to take only 5 of the 21 ends, with most of the damage done in the middle section of the game, when some superb home bowling saw Beaufort take 8 consecutive ends, and run out winners by 29-6.
