Wadsworth - Semi Finals

Alison v Maurice

On a thirty-one yard opening jack Alison took the end with a wood to fifteen inches. She set the same length in the second end but all three of Maurice’s woods were within four feet and he led 3-1. He set the jack a yard further in the third end and took two, including a toucher, increasing his lead to 5-1. The next end was full length, the two thereafter at thirty-three yards and all followed the same pattern, Maurice building three shots till Alison’s final wood cut him down to one, but that still meant that after six ends he was a healthy 8-1 up.

Back to thirty-one yards and again Maurice, just, for a single shot and 9-1. With the jack at twenty-eight yards in the eighth, Alison’s first to eighteen inches was good enough to take the end, but just the one with Maurice’s final wood going into second. On another jack at the same length in the ninth Alison’s first wood was a toucher. Maurice’s first wood was good, too, but at nine inches just second. Alison’s final wood took second from him, but at 9-4 overall it was Maurice through to the final against Hans, this match scheduled for 10 September.
