Madeira Remembrance Sunday fixture halts at 11am with the score 11-all

PUBLISHED: 12:39 16 November 2017 | UPDATED: 12:39 16 November 2017




Madeira took three teams to Honiton last week and, despite an excellent 25-13 win for the rink of Pat Harris, Jean Bagnall, Penny Preece, and Jean Rainton, lost overall to the hosts, writes Jenny Charles.

At home on the Madeira rink, the ladies’ captain, Jean Healey, selected a team to play against vice captain Margaret Humphrey’s team.

The captain’s team won by 56 points to 42 with the help of highest rink being Lin Hambly, May Dyson and Jenny Charles with a close 16-9 win.

Torquay, who are always competitive, brought a mixed team to Madeira and the home team won on all three rinks, helped by Jenny Smith and her team of David Charles and John Sweetman with a good score of 22-11. It certainly was a case of an enjoyable afternoon being had by all.

On that same day in the men’s Inter-Club competition, Madeira lost by 89-62 to a strong Plymouth team, but picked up two points for winning one of the home rinks where Mike Marks, David Macaulay, George Perrin and Mike Gorman won by 19-17.

Given the date was November 11, at exactly 11am all play was stopped and the players respectfully stood for a minute’s silence.

At the conclusion of this and after a number of ends had already been played, it was noted that the aggregate score for both rinks at the time showed 11-11. What an amazing coincidence indeed!
