WEEK 31st MAY - 6th JUN (ALSO REPORTED IN THE WORTHING HERALD)
The first match of the week was a Stracey Shield league match at home to near rivals Tarring Priory. This ought to have been a tricky match for Goring Manor but in the end they ran out comfortable winners by 6 points to 2. Coasting on all three rinks, a clean sweep looked on the cards. But a late implosion on one rink from a position of 16 shots to 5 ahead, only to lose 18 shots to 16, meant that with a good top rink by skip Keith Renwick and an equally good win by skip Tommy Tsoi, Goring scored 62 shots to 47 overall and won the match by 6 points to 2.
The next day brought a Brodie Tray match for Goring Hurricanes at home to Marine Gardens. Winning on three of the four rinks and with an overall winning margin of 90 shots to 47, the Hurricanes won the match by 8 points to 2. Top rink went to Jean Meneely and skip Derek King. Skips Basil Taylor and Kevin Pearce also won.
A trip to Midhurst on Saturday brought another win, this time by 73 shots to 61. Top rink were Linda Turley, Peter Treagust and skip Kevin Pearce. Skips Stuart Andrews and Doug Hunt also won.
The last match of the week was a visit by Goring Hurricanes to Worthing Pavilion for Brodie Tray match. This time the Hurricanes lost by 94 shots to 53 and by 8 points to 2. The only notable feature for Goring was the win by Morag Cruise, Alan Turley, Pete Treagust and skip Tommy Tsoi who, from a position of 16 shots to 1 down, came back to win by 22 shots to 19.
