Tamworth took and early overall lead but this did not last long as DBE bowlers got used to the rinks. This was a very close match every inch of the way. After 10 ends the score was level at 55 all, at 16 ends DBE had a 1 shot lead 80-79. As the last 12 ends played and finished the lead swung from one team to the other finally the match ended with a very narrow victory for DBE by 96 shots to 93.
Everyone finished this excellent match with light refreshments of twac, coffee cakes and biscuits. Many thanks to Tamworths players and organisers for hosting an excellent afternoon of bowling.
