THERE can be only one match report to start with as Penarth PG2 side destroyed visitors Llanbradach 115-41, a margin of 74 shots and a maximum of haul of 14 points.

This win further enhances their chances of promotion, hopefully as division 2 champions.

Dave Clements returned from the sunny Gower climes to skip the rink of Brian Chandler, Don Shirley and Lawrence Brooke to a resounding 32-7 win. After 11 ends they held a lead of 16 shots and continued to out bowl the opposition and set the scene for impressive overall win.

The ever reliable Brian Brennan and his rink of Haydn Trow, Bob Lewis and Mike England were not far behind as they chalked up a 31-10 victory, scoring on 13 of the 21 ends. Despite going one shot down on the first end, Brian rallied his troops to grind out the 21 shot margin by the finish.

Nick Thomas, Gut Thomas, Bob Willmott and Dave Holdaway scored on 14 of the 21 ends but only managed to win by 28-12. Must try harder!

Colin Hicks and his rink of Captain John, Billy Croll and Alex Forsyth got back to winning ways and were victorious by 28-12. The drinks were on Colin.

Promotion is very much in the PG2 side's own hands now. They just need to keep winning and nobody will catch them.

The PG1 side are also in the hunt for promotion and equally must continue to win all remaining games to secure this status.

At the time of going to press they hold fourth spot with several games in hand on those above them. Saturday's result at Sully Sports earned them 10 points in a close and competitive game, winning by just 9 shots.

The major contributor to this win was the Colin Grant, Phil Crocker, Neil Gaskell and Terry Buckingham rink which rattled up a 32-12 win. An 8 on the 5th end settled them down well for the rest of the game and helping to seal the result on the day. Nick Chandler, Bob Horne, Chas Burton and Dave Murphy raced ahead to a 20-4 lead at the 13th end but wobbled somewhat through the last 8 ends but still managed to register a useful 22-15 win.

Unfortunately skips Clive Fry and Tony Holmes found life not to their liking with both of them skipping losing rinks.

The penultimate Munro Cup game at Cadoxton resulted in a narrow 2 shot win overall posting 10 points with 2 rinks up and 2 rinks down. The 68-66 was well fought out on a difficult green. Any hopes of winning the Cup overall have now disappeared in the Cadoxton drizzle.

The Ladies returned to winning ways in both of last week's games. The first was at Murch in a re-arranged Afternoon League which ended in a narrow win by 48-45.

The trepidation of the trip was well and truly put to bed by Wendy Grant, Jill Gaskell, Betty Jones and Chris Church, as they strode confidently to a 26-10 win laying the foundations for a win overall. Sue Croll, Tricia Brinkworth, June Williams and Chris Davies found things a wee bit difficult and went down by 10-22. Belinda Price, Kath Jenkins, Joan Lewis and Norma Duggan almost earned a win coming back from 6-12 down to lose by the one shot and 12-13.

Thursday's game was at Penarth Windsor and gave the Rectory Ladies a very satisfying 50-36 win. The dominating rink was that of Belinda Price, Jayne Edwards, Jill Gaskell and Chris Church as that provided a solid 20-5 win.

Wendy Grant, Tricia Brinkworth, Sue Roberts and Norma Duggan also weighed in with a confident 21-14. Unfortunately Sue Croll and her ladies could not quite complete a whitewash, going down 9-17. Overall a great win.
