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.
