This was the final match of Division 2, a full team of Redcraig travelled out to Pathhead, who unfortunately could only muster 3 members to shoot tonight, given a big disadvantage, However Pathhead’s captain has cleverly placed his team and managed to take 5 of the 8 match play points. Pathhead’s A Parlett was the high scorer of the evening, but all this is not enough to take the match when a man down, letting Redcraig steal the match and keep 3 match play points.
Congratulations to Redcraig on becoming the Division 2 champions for 2013-14, winning the Evening News Shield. The Matchplay trophy, however, goes to Pathhead after their captain’s astute arrangements in the last match, snatching it away from the overall league winners by a single point.

Previous match commentary:
24/10/2013: Watsonians B v Redcraig.
Redcraig were at an immediate disadvantage with being one man down in this match, but showed good sportsmanship by attending rather than cancelling at the last minute. The high scorer being Mrs Dove dropping only 6 points. However Redcraig although disadvantaged still took 1 of the matchplay points.
However Watsonians have taken this match with a large difference in score.
In this match with Watsonians and Redcraig on 24/10/13, both teams were a man down, Mrs Dove who has worked hard at getting two teams into the league, decided to make up her clubs team into a team of 4 and shot the match.
She has realised that she is registered with the A team and has noticed that according to the rules she is prohibited from shooting in the B Team and that her average is higher than the one she substituted.
On noticing the breach of rules she immediately contacted the shoulder to shoulder secretary informing him of this and has requested that her score in this match be removed with the scores to be adjusted accordingly.
This is commendable sportsmanship, on realising the error and having it repaired at her own request.
The match scores have been changed to show the amended score and result. Which is a draw, under the circumstances a very good result.
