Tuesday July 26th saw Oxfordshire play Wilshire at Wroughton BC, won on 3 rinks,lost on 2 and a draw on 1 and won the match by 8 shots. Wiltshire gained an early lead which lasted until the 15th end. Then the Deputy President’s rink decided enough was enough and picked up a hot shot to take the lead for the first time. This motivated the next door rink skipped by the President who picked up a 4 and a 5 to also take the lead. Both rinks claimed that these shots won mere the difference in the 8 shot overall win.
