County Triples Semi Finals

The Tetbury rink of Steve White, Malcolm Curtis and Pete Stinchcombe took a commanding 10-1 lead over Cheltenham after five ends when they started out with a four and then bagged a three.

The Cheltenham trio hauled themselves back into the match with a three and a single, however a dropped five then proved a killer blow on the eighth end to see Tetbury leading 15-5.

Another two ends yielding five shots gave Cheltenham hope before the Tetbury trio grabbed a single and then won five further ends to close out the match with a 26-10 victory.

In the other tie Gloucester City beat Olveston 25-18.

The County Finals take place at Olveston on July 27 and they will both also represent the county at the National Championships at Leamington in August.
