Coronation Cup - Friary Park

On 10th August Friary Park hosted the 61st Annual Coronation Cup

Over the years Muswell Hill have been very successful with nine wins including 04, 05, 07 and 2009.

The format was 5 rinks of triples with the visitors playing 5 ends against each of the home teams, moving along a rink after each set.

 This years team of David L, Richard and Keith started in impressive style. Remarkably after a tied first end - two bowls resting on the jack - perfect weight from Richard. After 9 ends our lads hadn't dropped a shot and lay 15 - 1 (+14) up after 10 ends. After 15 ends were joint leaders on 18 - 7 (+11). After that the wheels fell off Muswell Hill's challenge and Mill Hill joint leaders after 15 played a strong final two sets to finish +22

The final scores were:
+22 Mill Hill
+14 Muswell Hill
+12 Friary Park (Rink 2)
