On Monday 1st May, 9 Juniors and their adult partners participated in the annual regional event. With the rain holding off, the day was played in the warmest of spirits and it was, as predicted, the Juniors taking the limelight with some inspired displays.
The format was 2 groups. One of 5 and one of 4 teams, with each team playing 3 games. The top 2 in each group advancing to the Semi Finals.
After the morning groups the Semi Finals were Oscar Panadero & Marc Franco Llado vs David Plumhoff & Josh Price and Stuart & Liam Floyd vs Mark Robertshaw & Jamie Brooks.
Both Semi Finals were tight affairs.
Liam Floyd’s wonderful carreau for game against Mark & Jamie was cause for celebration and a 13-11 win; while the other Semi Final was again very tight and having been 9-4 down, Oscar & Marc and 2 incredible ends to win the game – much to the frustration of David & Josh.
In the Final, Stuart & Liam raced into a 5 point lead but unfortunately this was as good as it got for the sibling duo, and Oscar & Marc were able to win the game in a comfortable fashion in the end.
Congratulations to Oscar & Marc for defending their title!
