The weather was rather warm and stuffy for round 13 and I don't know about anybody else but I was sweating at the end of my match.
Ben and Anne got the ball rolling. Ben's throwing was a little erratic and Anne outscored him consistently, but her finishing proved her undoing yet again as she lost 3-1. Andy and Sam were up next, Sam winning the advantage of throw with a dead-centre bullseye. The match was a close one with Andy's scoring a little below par and Sam took full advantage to gain a draw 2-2.
Darren took on Ram in the third match which saw some good ton-plus scoring from both players with Darren hitting the night's highest 140. However Ram edged it with his finishing, including the highest checkout of 56, and walked out the 3-1 winner.
Anne rounded the night off with a second appearance, this time against James. However tiredness affected her throwing. Despite her having a shot at finishing in the first two legs, James powered ahead in the third and final leg to win comfortably 3-0.
As usual, thanks to all the players and I look forward to the concluding round next week.
Only one more round remains, with 6 outstanding fixtures. We will try to get through them all on the night of 25th June, but if time runs out they will carry over to the following week. Three of the top four could still top the table, so it's all still to play for.
