Prattens Bowls Club secure four league points
writes Graeme Smith
Wednesday night was conducted in the usual manner with the Mens team, playing in the Mid-Somerset league.
On this occasion, they had an away game at Purnells against Purnells B. Prattens won on two rinks, but lost on the third, giving a final result of 60 to 56 awarding victory to Purnells with Prattens picking up 4 league points out of the 12 available.
Friday night saw the Ladies team playing away at Bloomfield in the Fear Cup, and wIn on 2 of the 3 rinks and overall so move on to the next round which will be against Purnells.
On Saturday the Mens team had an away game in the Somerset League against Bath C, which proved to be a very close game, in very hot weather.
The weather was so hot that there was a break for refreshments after 9 ends and the Captains agreed to shorten the game from 21 ends to 18 ends.
At the start of final end to be played on the last rink to finish, each team won on one rink and there were only two shots between the total scores, but Prattens dropped two shots on the final end losing the rink by a single shot and the match by 4 shots. So Prattens Mens team played and lost 2 games this week but both of them were close losing by 4 shots in each case.
The Sunday Mixed game away to Trowbridge Westbourne was cancelled because of fears about the heat.
