Ashby lose 3-4 to Camerton and Peasedown in the Murphy Shield

By Mick Haytack

The weather was good for this close semi-final match. The teams were:-

Ashby Camerton & Peasedown

Christine Mounfield 2 Brian Wilson 3
Mick Haytack 3 Rosalind (Ros) Key-Pugh 3
Ray Mounfield 3 Maureen (Mo) Boys 3
Martin Wroughton 4 Patrick Knight 4

Christine and Mick beat Brian and Ros 7-4, 5-7, 7-4
Ray beat Patrick 7-5, 7-5
Martin lost to Mo 5-7, 7-5, 4-7

Christine lost to Brian 4-7, 7-6, 6-7
Mick lost to Ros 7-4, 5-7, 6-7
Ray beat Mo 7-3, 2-7, 7-5
Martin lost to Patrick 4-7, 3-7

As the scorline suggests, this was a very close match with the top two singles going to the 13th hoop in the 3rd game. Ros beat Mick by running hoop 13 from the boundary with an angled shot. Both teams played some exceptionally good shots but our visitors played just that bit better and will face either Guildford or East Dorset in the final.
