Atlantic Championship Update

Last end heartbreakers…

Today’s results, preview for tomorrow and permutations.

Men’s Singles:

Ross has a great start to the day with a comfortable 21-12 win against Isle Of Man. Next up England’s Jamie Walker. Ross was on fire racing to a 10-1 lead but Jamie proved why he is one of England’s finest. Ross at 20-15 up first bowl front toucher 3 inches off the jack covered great game looked won and Jamie took the bowl clean without moving the jack. 2 fantastic ends later Jamie ran out a 21-20 win on Ross. Ross moves into the final day with a top 6 place secure but a playoff place gone needing a miracle.

Jersey 21-12 Isle Of Man

Jersey 20-21 England

Ladies Pairs:

The ladies started knowing a top 6 place and world bowls was as good as secure but a tough start against Wales killed their hopes of a playoff place. The ladies played their final game against South Africa and topped off a fine campaign with a win ensuring top 6.

Jersey 11-16 Wales

Jersey 15-12 South Africa

Ladies Triples:

A day where wins were a must started well with a win over Switzerland.  Into the afternoon, they faced the Dutch who unfortunately ran out comfortable winners meaning the ladies will not make top 6 and won’t qualify for world bowls. They will play their final game tomorrow with pride and try finish on a high

Jersey 16-13 Switzerland

Jersey 13-26 Netherlands

Men’s Fours:

Starting the day in the most comfortable in all four disciplines, the guys found themselves in 2 tough games. Going into the last end level, the plan worked to get the jack on the T with burning it scoring a 2. Another tough game followed and again going into the last end level, it went the way of the opposition and a tough loss. Top 6 fully secure and barring a hammering tomorrow, a playoff place secure. They need a big win against Wales and Namibia to lose against Guernsey to top the group
