Despite losing on three rinks, Wedmore managed to beat Taunton by one shot.
WEDMORE men played a home and away four rink match against Taunton in the SCIBA League.
Eddie Payne led his side to a 29-8 victory and although Wedmore lost on the other three rinks, the winning margin was enough to give overall victory by one point.
Dave Nicholls’ team were ahead until the 16th rink and level again on the 18th, but a strong finish by Taunton gave them victory. Steve Heeley’s men rallied strongly in the second half of their match, but it was not enough to overhaul the 13 point lead Taunton held after 10 ends. Steve Eastment’s opposition pulled away and stayed ahead.
Wedmore 78, Taunton 77: J Harris, A Birch, K Phillimore, E Payne 29-8; B Back, J Arthur, D Collins, D Nicholls 13-18; T Brown, S Newdick, K Pettit, S Heeley 20-27; V Mathews, C Panchaud, R Barron, S Eastment 16-24.
