Julie and Sam v Penny and Mark

Julie started the match with a wood to five inches, then another to a foot. Penny and Mark were not that far away but Sam’s three woods were all close and he and Julie had taken five shots on the first end. In the second end it was Penny setting the pace on a full length jack, at six and fifteen inches for two. Sam just pipped Mark for third wood but it was now 5-2. In the third, at thirty-five yards it was again two shots for Penny at one foot and fifteen inches, Mark adding two more whilst Sam kept finding his opponents or his own woods in the way. Four shots to Penny and Mark, they now led 6-5.

In the fourth the shot changed hands several times but it was one to Julie and Sam to level at 6-6. The fifth saw Julie and Sam build three shots, Mark’s last wood was a measure for second but just missed out by a fraction – two to Julie and Sam to lead 8-6. The sixth was another see-saw for shot, with Sam just taking it with his final wood to extend the lead to 9-6. Yet another see-saw in the seventh, Mark taking it to trail 7-9. In the penultimate end Penny and Mark held a shot each until Sam’s final wood promoted Penny into third, and it was a measure for fourth – but just three it was so that Penny and Mark had retaken the lead at 10-9 as they stood on the mat for the last end.

Penny held two till Julie took shot with her last wood. Sam took the shot at eighteen inches, then another at five inches so that he and Julie held three. Mark had a perfect line but all his woods were a fraction too strong and with three shots it was Julie and Sam through to the semi final 12-10. A terrific match for the spectator, with all four playing very well, credit to them all.
