Inter-Club GC Murphy Shield: Ashby 3-4 Camerton & Peasedown

Wed 7th August, Moira Report by Mick

The weather was good for our semi-final match at home against Somerset club Camerton & Peasedown. The teams were:

Ashby: Christine Mounfield (2), Mick Haytack (3), Ray Mounfield (3), Martin Wroughton (4)
Camerton & Peasedown: Brian Wilson (3), Rosalind (Ros) Key-Pugh (3), Maureen (Mo) Boys (3), Patrick Knight (4)


Christine and Mick beat Brian and Ros 7-4, 5-7, 7-4
Ray beat Patrick 7-5, 7-5
Martin lost to Mo 5-7, 7-5, 4-7

Christine lost to Brian 4-7, 7-6, 6-7
Mick lost to Ros 7-4, 5-7, 6-7
Ray beat Mo 7-3, 2-7, 7-5
Martin lost to Patrick 4-7, 3-7

As the scoreline suggests, this was a very close match with the top two singles going to the 13th hoop in the 3rd game. Ros beat Mick by running hoop 13 from the boundary with an angled shot. Both teams played some exceptionally good shots but our visitors played just that bit better and will face either Guildford or East Dorset in the final.
