Bella'S Shield - Geoff v Hans

Geoff set a long jack was holding till Hans’ final wood, too strong, except that it smashed Geoff fair and square out of the head and stopped dead for shot. Hans then moved the jack in the second but could not stop Geoff taking two to lead 2-1. In the third end Hans had two woods within a foot on a thirty yard jack to retake the lead 3-2.

Both players were a little loose in the fourth, but Hans ended up with two shots for 5-2. Much tighter in the fifth, Hans with shot, Geoff pushing that out, Hans coming back just inside for 6-2. Hans seta thirty-five yard jack in the sixth, clipped it a yard wide of the string, and both played good woods but on a measure it was another two to Hans for a big lead at 8-2.

Geoff fought back with two great woods to hold two, but was frustrated by Hans’ final wood taking second, just one for 3-8 when he needed more. Geoff needed two in the eighth to stay in the match, he had them till Hans again produced a superb final wood, right on the jack for shot and at 9-3 he could not be caught.
