This was a humdinger of a game with an overall score that yo-yoed back and forth, with an exciting tied result.
After 5 ends 22 – 31 Berkshire racing to a 9 shot lead.
After 10 ends 60 – 53 Dorset pulling back and moving to a 7 shot lead.
After 15 ends 87 – 82 Dorset holding on to a reduced 5 shot lead.
After 18 ends 103 – 97 Dorset increase the slender lead to 6 shots.
After 21 ends 117 – 117 Dorset had relinquished their lead and Berkshire made up the 6 shots in 3 ends.
This was a just outcome to this game, which was played in the finest of spirits.
