Terror Pins with David and Linda Hicks unavailable, took a squad consisting of Sue and Chris Gatter, Sue and Tony Gooding, Irene and Henry Yates, Merv and Barbara Handford, Karl Edworthy and Conrad (Mr T) Thomas to the Aylesbeare Inn for their final away fixture to take on Rogue Eagles, a game which was not decided until the very last throw of the night, writes SpursTom.
There were floppers, spares and a sunshine, and no one could predict who would end up victorious it was so close throughout!
For the Terror Pins, the star player of the evening was Merv Handford who achieved an ‘18’ including a flopper in leg five.
Edworthy served up a spare in leg six and even the lowest scorer, Thomas, who was having a dreadful night, somehow got a flopper in the seventh. Going first in the final leg they needed a good target to set the hosts and a reasonable one was posted.
The Rogue Eagles kept it tight until a team member got a sunshine, it was now down to the anchor man Simon Woolley. He had been the biggest threat to Terror Pins having started his game with a flopper, he then followed that with spares in legs five and seven, and, yes, he did it again when it mattered!
That gave him an aggregate score of 80 which helped edge Terror Pins over the line for a two-pin success.
