Deaf Sport shock Kirby Bedon in Summer Cup
Deaf Sports achieved another giant- killing shock in the Norfolk Summer Cup, beating Division One opponents Kirby Bedon on shots after finishing level at 4-4 on points to reach a semi-finals that might only contain one top flight club.
Gillian Amos, Dennis Kemble and Robin Amos of Deaf Sports snatched a one shot win against Carol Aggas, Phil Watson and John Aggas in the first half but Kirby's Shirley Brown, Jimmy Dye and Joe Brown gave Kirby a two shot interval lead beating John Jeffery's triple 14-11.
Joe Brown's triple added an 11-10 win against Amos after the break but Rosemary Hall, Richard Sutton & John Jeffery earned Deaf an eight shot win beating John Aggas' triple 20-9.
Wymondham's determined efforts to secure that elusive first Norfolk Summer League title would appear to be in pieces yet again after a 6-2 home defeat at the hands of defending champions Bob Carter.
Wymondham's Mark Linsdell, Debbie Phillips and Jon Sparham were determined to end their poor run of results but conceded a five and a three to trail 8-2 after just three ends against Carter's George Clarke, Melvin Woods & Trevor Brown. These ends proved fatal as Brown's triple carved out a 16-11 win. Wymondham's first half misery was completed as Andrew Jackson, Jack Barrett and Chris Mann saw a 6-1 lead evaporate as Carter's Nigel Willard, David Lamb & John Turner came from behind to win 13-9.
After the break Mark Linsdell was switched to skip but this change failed to prevent his triple suffering their sixth consecutive defeat as they went down by 15-11 to John Turner's triple.
Chris Mann's triple scored the home sides only win beating Trevor Brown's triple 20-14 after picking up nine shots on ends seven & nine.
