Hustlers were like fish out of water at the Suffolk as they were caught hook, line and sinker in an otherwise entertaining match.Although Fishers signalled their intentions from the very first hand, in which a 15 spare and two sevens left Hustlers with an immediate deficit of 12 pins, this proved a flash in the pan as Hustlers gradually made up the difference and two besides by the end of the leg.
Andy’s score of 26 on second leg was mitigated by an opposition score of 24, but the leg was shaded by Fishers and it was their turn to end a leg two pins up.
Third leg was marginally the lowest of the night and had little form to it, but the game gradually drifted away from the Hustlers who were left at the end with a deficit of 13 pins.
Last leg saw Rob top the scoring with 40 but our valiant final three were unable to make any impression on the deficit and both sides finished with no advantage, Fishers running out the winners by 13 pins.
Next week we are at the Kings Head, Bishops Cleeve. Another good alley to be dropped for.
Lost by 13!
