Oxon men beat Cambs in friendly

On Wednesday 11th July Oxfordshire hosted Cambridge at West Witney BC.

For the second week running Oxfordshire eased their way into an early lead and were never headed. Chris Weller and his team on rink 6 lead the way with a comfortable win by 19 shots, which inspired the 4 adjacent rinks to comfortable wins. Only rink 1 failed to follow the lead and despite being 4 ahead after 11 ends did not win another end and lost by 12.

A 200 game badge was awarded to County Treasurer Allan Hunt and a 100 game badge to Kidlington’s Melvin Brain.
