A POWERFUL Plashet rink skipped by Alan Hogwood, with George Davies, Eernie Bloe and Harry Morley could not prevent a narrow 55-51 defeat at home to Fords last weekend.
The foursome won the tight opening gambit 20-14, but sadly the other two rinks could not replicate their success.
Skipped by Mike Mullinder, rink five, with Alf Goring, Barry Menzies and Reg Evett, played against a Fords team which failed to field a full squad.
Despite a late rally by Plashet, they could not win, even though Fords had to sacrifice 25 per cent of their score, they still took the rink 18-15.
Rink six, skipped by Peter Chilkes, with Jim Brady, Ken Carter and Cliff Dye, saw Plashet win six of the last nine ends, but it still wasn't enough as they went down 23-16.
Meanwhile, Plashet registered a 12-shot win over against Barking BC in their two-legged semi-final of the Seeley Cup last Tuesday.
