RECENT HIGHLIGHTS:

Sorry for the lack of weekly reports recently teams. New job has had to take priority over Aunt Sally I'm afraid!! Here are some of the highlights from the past few weeks:

Week 8 - 13th June

There was a stunning performance this week by the Oxford Yeoman A, who recorded a massive 10-0 away win over the Red Lion. The highlight of this win was in second leg, in which the Lion posted a big set of 16. However, this proved to be not enough, as the Yeoman anchor man Henry Smith whipped off the 3 dolls required to take the leg 17-16. George French was in great form for the Yeoman, hitting a personal best score of 19 dolls as lead off man. James Bateman was also a player in fine form as his 17 dolls helped the George & Dragon B win 6-4 away at Stonesfield Sports. It was a tight match which went the distance, with the George taking the deciding leg to secure the victory.There was a rare score draw between the Swan and the Elm Tree, who tied 5-5. The Swan did well to hold their nerve as they won the final leg of the match to take a share of the spoils.

The first battle of the Prince resulted in the Prince A finally hitting some good form to pick up a 6-4 win and end the Prince B's undefeated record in a high scoring match. The Prince A hit their first 100 plus total of the season, scoring 106 dolls over the five legs, with Rob Bradford taking the top scorer award with 22 dolls. Mick Phipps & Dick Walsh recorded maximums for the Prince A, who will hope this is the begining of a much needed run of good performances to climb the table. Elsewhere, there were two last leg deciders, which saw narrow 6-4 wins for both Chadlington Sports and also Hanborough Sports. Ray Grant hit his first maximum of the season to help the Masons Arms A pick up a much needed 6-4 home win over the Queens Head. Charlie Buckingham was the Masons top scorer with 20 dolls, but it was Lee Thompson who was the match top scorer with an impressive 21 doll haul

 

Week 7 - 6th June

This week saw a big upset, as the Elm Tree found some good form to hammer the Red Lion 8-2 at home, which was the Lion's first defeat of the season. There was some good scoring by the Elm Tree players, in particular Ray Barson, who came in with an impressive 18 dolls.This result allowed the Masons Arms B to get themselves right in the mix at the top of Section Two, as they picked up a 8-2 home win over the Oxford Yeoman A, which was also the Yeoman's first defeat of the season. Adolfo Kerpache was in fine form for the Masons, hitting a maximum in the 2nd on route to scoring 16 dolls.

Chadlington Sports continued their fine form this season as they racked up a mighty 114 dolls gross as they brushed aside the Queens Head 10-0 away from home. You had to feel sorry for the Queens side, who played really well all evening, but with Chad's lowest leg total being 21, they were just up against a side in fantastic form. Another side in great form were the Three Horseshoes, who recorded a very impressive 8-2 away win over the Black Prince A. The tone was set in the opening leg of the match, with the Shoes posting a mighty set of 23, which included a 6 by Alex Chamberlain. The Prince's chase was in vain, even though both Dick Walsh & Jon Townsend hit maximums. Sean Barefield & Alex Chamberlain both had excellent nights for the Shoes after hitting 20 dolls each. 

 

Week 6 - 30th May

Star performers this week were without doubt the Cock Inn, who racked up 104 dolls gross to defeat the Oxford Yeoman B 8-2 at home. It was a fantastic performance by the Cock side, with a card that contained only three scores of 1, so the Yeoman should actually be quite pleased that they managed to take a couple points on the night. Aaron Aitkin was the top scorer with a great 18 dolls. Enstone Sports picked up their first win of the season after beating the Three Horseshoes 6-4 away from home. Enstone are proving yet again how difficult a side they are to beat, and have been unlucky on more than one occasion this season to secure a victory, so I'm sure they were delighted to finally get their first win out of the way. There was a very strange low scoring match between the Masons Arms A & Chadlington Sports, which ended with Chad picking up an 8-2 away win. Considering the quality of the players involved, it was bizarre to see so many people hit scores below their average, with Chad captain Richard Johnson probably being the only player content with his performance as he hit 18 dolls, which included a maximum in the 2nd leg.

There were a couple of good away wins in the lower sections, with the George & Dragon B defeating the Woodman 7-3, and the Fox defeating the George & Dragon 8-2.

 

Week 5 - 23rd May

This week saw the first major local derby of the season, with the George & Dragon A & B sides playing eachother. It turned out that the A side claimed the bragging rights after producing their best performance of the season to win 8-2. I'm sure that the celebrations were nice and quiet in the bar afterwards! The Masons Arms B were in fine form as they hit 64 dolls and defeated the Elm Tree 8-2 at home, with captain Mark Bennett performing well again with 18 dolls. There was a great comeback by the Woodstock SC, as they came back from being 5-1 down after 3 legs to secure a 5-5 draw away at the Fox, which included a mighty score of 19 in the fourth leg.

Chadlington Sports had another good night as they picked up a 5-5 draw away at the Black Prince A. The Prince were in debt to anchor man Keith Powell for saving them in more than one leg after a fine display of pressure hitting, which included hitting a 4 to draw in the final leg. The Chad boys were on fire all evening, with Richard Johnson, Kevin Drinkwater & Freddie Moreton all hitting maximums (Richard's and Kevin's were in the same leg!). Dick Walsh was the leagues top scorer for the week with 20 dolls, although it wasn't enough to help the Prince to pick up a much needed win. The Queens Head picked up their first win of the season after defeating Enstone Sports 8-2 and will hope that they have turned the corner and can start to move up the table.

 

Week 4 - 16th May

There was a league/cup double header played this week, with Chadlington Sports hosting Enstone Sports in the scheduled league match, which was also counted as their Knockout Cup Preliminary match. The match turned out to be a nail biting affair! Chadlington held a narrow 4-2 lead after 3 legs, and with the 4th leg being tied on 17 each, it meant that Enstone needed to win the final leg to extend the match. Enstone set a total of 13, to which Chad fell just short with a total of 12. So the league match eneded in a 5-5 draw, but a good old fashioned three sticker was required to decide who advanced in the cup. Enstone set 5 in the three stick playoff, which Chad would of been confident of beating, but a run of blobs meant that they couldn't match that set, meaning Enstone went through to the next round. The only maximum of the week was hit by Jeff Glenister for the Queens Head, although it didn't stop the Queens going down to a 8-2 home defeat to Hanborough Sports.

The Red Lion were again on form in Section Two, hitting 66 dolls on the way to picking up a 6-4 home win over the Woodman, and there was a rare 5-5 draw between the George & Dragon A and the Swan, which saw the Swan take the deciding leg to pick up a share of the points.

WEEKLY REPORT:

NO CARD RECEIVED!! SWAN V WOODSTOCK SC - NAMED & SHAMED!

Week three arrived, and brought the rain with it! Hopefully you all managed to get your matches played before the heavens opened!

Starting off in the Top Sections, and it was the Oxford Yeoman B that recorded this season's first 10-0 whitewash after defeating a weakened Queens Head side. It was a really strong team effort by the Yeoman, with Martin Few & Dave Trim both coming in with 16 dolls. It's been a difficult start to the season for the Queens, but we all know how good they can be, so keep an eye for when they take revenge on someone! There was another big result in the Premier section, with the Black Prince B taking out the Masons Arms A 8-2. The Prince B racked up an impressive 90 dolls, which any side would have struggled to match. Charlie Buckingham was in stunning form for the Masons, hitting 5,4,5,5,5 to total a mighty 24 dolls. For the Prince B, Henry Johnson recorded his first 6 of the season in the middle of his 19 doll total, but the star of the show for the Prince had to be Adie Cooper, who came in with a personal best score of 18 dolls. Well done Adie. Chadlington Sports maintained their position at the top of the table after a great 8-2 away win over Hanborough Sports. Hanborough actually won the opening leg, before Chad hit back to win all of the remaining legs to secure another win. The Cock Inn were yet another team in fine form after they won 9-1 at home against the Three Horseshoes. The Cock hit 80 dolls in total, with all the players scoring good amounts of dolls. Alex Chamberlain was again the Shoes top scorer with 17 dolls. The final match in the Top Sections saw the Black Prince A come back from being 3-1 behind to pick up an important 7-3 away win over Enstone Sports. Phil Austin was the top scorer for the Prince A with 19 dolls, which included a 6 in the 4th leg.

In the Lower Sections, the George & Dragon B secured their first win of the season after defeating the Fox Inn 6-4 at home. The George might actually be slightly disappointed by this result as they were leading 6-0 after three legs, but the Fox managed to hang on and pick up what could prove to be some crucial points. The Masons Arms B flexed their muscles to pick up a 8-2 home win over Stonesfield Sports. Captain and lead off man Mark Bennett was in great form for the Masons B, hitting 18 dolls to be the Section Two weekly top scorer. The Red Lion made it 3 wins out of 3 to stay at the top of Section Two after beating the George & Dragon A 6-4, with Ray Townsend again top scoring for the Lion with 15 dolls. The final match to report on (hint hint Swan/Woodstock SC) saw a 5-5 score draw between the Woodman and the Oxford Yeoman A. It was a great fightback by the Woodman, as the Yeoman were leading 5-1 after 3 legs. 

That's it for this week. The next website update will be done this coming Sunday, the 19th, so please try and get this weeks cards to me by then

WEEKLY REPORT:

Week two's action again showed how tight the season is going to be, with some very interesting results coming in.

Starting off in the Lower Sections, and there was a fantastic individual performance by the Red Lion's Ray Townsend, who top scored in the league with a fantastic 21 dolls, which included a 6 in the second leg. Woodstock SC were the unlucky side to be on the receiving end of Ray's fine form, as he starred in a 8-2 away win for the Lion. Neil Morton also hit a maximum, as the Lion hit an impressive 73 dolls to strengthen their postion at the top of Section Two. The other two teams in Section Two, the George & Dragon B and Masons Arms B, faced off against each other in what was a very tight game.The game swung one way and then the other, and with the score tied at 4-4 going into the final leg, it was the Masons that nicked this decider to claim a 6-4 away win. There was actually only a single doll between the sides, which shows how close the match was. Aldolfo Kerpache was the star of the show with an excellent 17 dolls. In Section Three, the Oxford Yeoman A took over at the top of the table after defeating the George & Dragon A 7-3 at home. Knowing these two sides, I'm sure Trev's till was kept busy by the thirsty boys! George French was on good form in the middle of the batting order for the Yeoman, top scoring with 13 dolls. There was another close match between the Elm Tree & the Woodman, in which the final two legs both ended in draws, which was just enough to see the Woodman pick up a 6-4 away win and make it two wins out of two. The final match saw a big home win for the Fox, who defeated the Swan 9-1, although two of the legs were won by just a single doll.

 

Moving into the Top Sections, and from looking at the cards, all the matches were very close. Chadlington Sports moved a point clear at the top of the Premier Section after winning at home 7-3 against the Oxford Yeoman B. However, it could of been a different outcome as the Yeoman only lost the final leg by a single doll, so were very close to gaining a draw. Chadlington's Richard Johnson (16 dolls) & Kevin Drinkwater (15 dolls) carried on from where they left off last week with another good night's work. The Queens Head hosted old rivals the Cock Inn, and although there was only a single doll that seperated the two sides, it was the Cock Inn that came away with a 7-3 away win. Jeff Glenister can count himself unlucky to finish on the losing side after hitting 18 dolls. The Masons Arms A won a close match 6-4 at home against Enstone Sports, with two of the legs ending in draws, meaning the result could of quite easily gone the other way. Charlie Buckingham hit what will be his first of many maximum's of the season on route to a good 18 dolls. The Black Prince A picked up their first win of the season after defeating Hanborough Sports 6-4, with Dick Walsh finding top form to hit 20 dolls, including a 6 in the final leg. Hanborough battled hard right until the end, and will be pleased that they easily chased down the Prince's set of 18 dolls in the final leg. The week's final match saw the Black Prince B win a last leg decider to secure a 6-4 away win over the Three Horseshoes. The match was tied 4-4 going into the final leg, in which the Shoes set a total of 15 dolls. Captain Bob Hall calmed the Prince's nerves by hitting a 4 in the middle of the chase, which eventually left anchor man Chris Price needing just a single doll to secure the victory.

 

So that's another week done!

All cards were received by Saturday again, which is just fantastic for me. A couple of cards didn't show who set in each leg, so if I could just remind you to show that by circling the legs then that would be great. It helps me to write my reports if I know who is setting/chasing.

Have a good week all, and lets hope the weather stays dry for week three's action!

WEEKLY REPORT:

So, lets crack on with this then! I'll start my report by thanking everyone for sending the result cards in so quickly! Please keep it up! Win, draw or lose, just take a picture and send it over! Now, on with the action....

Starting things off in the upper sections, the new handicap's already look as though they have leveled the playing field without making things too easy! There were two Premier sides who recorded the biggest margin of victory, but it's probably not the two that you would expect! Chadlington SSC marked their return to the top division by recording a 7-3 home victory over the Cock Inn.There was some good shooting by the Chadlington boys, with Richard Johnson becoming the first player in our league this season to hit the 20 doll mark, and Kevin Drinkwater impressing with 16 dolls. The Black Prince B also picked up a 7-3 win, which was away at the Queens Head. The Prince started strongly, winning the opening 3 legs, before the Queens fought back to finish the match with a draw and a win. Lee Thompson was the match top dog with a fine 19 dolls. The Three Horsehoes produced a great comeback in thier first match back in the upper sections to gain a 5-5 draw at home against the Masons Arms A. The Shoes lost the first 2 legs, before hitting back to take legs 3 & 4, meaning a last leg shootout was required. The Shoes set a solid total of 16 in this final leg, which the Masons anchor man Charlie Buckingham just managed to tie after hitting a 3 to secure the match finished all square. Alex Chamberlain got his season off to a flyer with a great 18 dolls. Last years Premier winners the Black Prince A suffered a shock 6-4 home defeat at the hands of the Oxford Yeoman B. The writing was on the wall for the Prince in the opening leg, in which they could only tie the Yeoman's modest set of 13 dolls. Take nothing away from the Yeoman, they produced a very good performance and hit 72 dolls, with everyone in the team scoring important dolls at crucial times. If they can maintain this level they will be a team to keep an eye on. Alan Major led the way for the Yeoman with 16 dolls, but the match top scorers were Jon Townsend & Darren Grant, who both came in with 17 dolls. The final match in the upper sections went to a last leg decider, with Enstone SSC needing a win to tie thier match against Hanborough SSC. It was Hanborough that set a total of 17 dolls, which looked to be in trouble before a very rare failure from George Williams saw the Enstone chaps only manage to tie the 17, meaning that Hanborough picked up the win 6-4. Kevin Burnham was the match top scorer with 15 dolls, but the biggest honour goes out to Martin Blake, who can proudly state that he was the first person this season to hit a 6 in our league! Well done Martin, I hope you called the last one off in the air!!

 

Moving into the lower sections, and it is league newbies the Swan who had the biggest smiles on their faces after winning their first ever match, defeating a strong looking George & Dragon B side 6-4 at home. The George easily won the first 2 legs, before the Swan hit back to win the remaining legs, with the deciding last leg won by just a single doll. Well done to the Swan team, and I hope you enjoyed your first night of action. I'm sure Gordon treated you all to a victory beer afterwards! Dave Gardener put down an early marker for the George, coming in with a great 17 dolls. The other new side (of sorts), the Woodman, also picked up a win after defeating Stonesfield SSC 8-2 at home. It's nice to see the Woodman returning to action in our league after taking a break last year, and I'm sure they will be very pleased after this win. The only other new side, Woodstock SC, didn't fair quite so well, with the Oxford Yeoman A handing out a 8-2 home win. Could this year finally be the year that the Yeoman stay the distance and reach their potential? Joe Langford was the match top scorer for the Yeoman, hitting a solid 14 dolls. There was a tight match between two sides looking to challenge at the top of their respective divisions, with the Red Lion hosting the Fox. It was the Fox that held a 4-2 lead after 3 legs, before the Lion hit back to win the final 2 legs and take the victory 6-4. Ray Townsend marked his first night of Wychwood action for many years by hitting an impressive 18 dolls.The evenings final action saw the Elm Tree pick up a good 7-3 win over the George & Dragon A, with Ray Barson top scoring at anchor with 13 dolls

That's my lot for this week.
