A win, a loss, and a draw (2016 Matches, pt 1)

We've had a few matches since our last post at the beginning of the month.

Unfortunately our success at West Meon at the end of last year has not been followed by the string of success we had hoped for but PCRC is by no means out of contention.  Here's how the matches went:

Havant A - 482

A. Morley (96)
A. Perry (94)
D. Cotton (99)
J. Allsop (94)
L. Hanna (95)
S. Lavin (95)
T. Brown (97)
Portsmouth City - 481

I. Cooper (97)
M. Nevatte (95)
A. Nevatte (96)
G. Scruton (97)
S. Hart (94)
P. Upchurch (95)
J. Rowe (96)

So it was 7 vs 7 and neither side shot particularly well and we were beaten by virtue of Havant shooting just that little bit less badly than we did.

Oh well... our next match was at home against the current champions, Sarisbury, who we had a particularly high scoring loss against earlier this season.  This had to be a far better score than the previous week against Havant, and thankfully it was.  Here's how we did:

Portsmouth City - 491

M. Nevatte (97)
A. Nevatte (96)
I. Cooper (98)
G. Scruton (98)
S. Hart (100)
J. Rowe (96)
P. Upchurch (95)
R. Ashman (98)
 Sarisbury - 491

M. Guille (99)
M. Frost (98)
G. Barber (94)
T. Gleed (99)
M. Holdway (97)
P. Pearce (98)
P. Fitzsimmons (94)

So, a high scoring match for both teams but an eventual draw.  Congratulations to Sarah Hart for getting a ton.

Our next match was against Fareham on their range.  It had now been three matches since a win for PCRC in the shoulder-to-shoulder league, so we were hungry for another win if was stood any chance of not slipping too far down the league table.  Luckily, we managed quite nicely:

Fareham - 472

D. Shepperd (99)
D. Blake (92)
M. Cakewell (92)
D. Fry (92)
M. King (84)
D. Accourt (80)
D. Spendlove (97)
M. Salisbury (82)
Portsmouth City - 486

I. Cooper (96)
M. Nevatte (98)
G. Scruton (96)
S. Hart (97)
A. Nevatte (95)
P. Upchurch (93)
J. Rowe (95)
R. Ashman (99)

L. Haskett (95)

So no particularly remarkable scores but a good solid addition to our aggregate.  At this point our stats were as follows:

7 wins, 1 draw, 2 losses
Team Average: 486.4
