City vs Railway: The Rematch... of sorts


Last week, Portsmouth City Rifle Club were victorious in a match against Portsmouth Railway Rifle Club for the first round of the Arthur Lee Cup.  This evening, we hosted Railway again, this time competing against each other in Division 1 of the Portsmouth & District league.

While the Arthur Lee match gave each shooter two cards to show their mettle, tonight's match provided only one opportunity for shooters to prove their worth.

This is how the match went:

Portsmouth City - 487

G. Scruton (97)
M. Nevatte (97)
A. Nevatte (98)
P. Upchurch (97)
S. Hart (98)
L. Haskett (91)
I. Cooper (97)
R. Ashman (97)

Reserve
J. Rowe (92)
 Portsmouth Railway - 482

J. Ring (98)
M. Carter (94)
K. Hardyman (95)
C. Richard (97)
N. Toms (93)
J. Stockham (93)
C. Coles (98)
D. Bednall (91)


So while both teams improved nicely on their performances last week, PCRC managed to edge ahead and equal their best team score of the season so far!

The sharp-eyed among you may notice that five of our shooters scored a 97 yet two had to be counted out.  This was decided by looking at who took out the most spots.  The picture below shows two shots, both of them are in and scored the maximum of 10.  However, the shot on the left took out the spot whereas on the right, the spot in the centre is clearly still there.
