Warwickshire’s Juniors travelled to Westlecott BC to face Wiltshire in the White Rose Trophy. Unfortunately the encounter ended in overall defeat for the Bears 26 shots to 56.
Tom Wheeler, Tom Ward, Ewan Mason and Jordan Ward (all Rugby) got off to a slow start, seven down after three ends. Five ends later the deficit had been cut down to two. The sides exchanged trebles before Wilts scored a two to double the lead. The Bears moved ahead with a treble and double only for the hosts to equalise, Ward and co took another double but fell behind by dropping a four. A treble took the Bears ahead by one but Wiltshire again levelled the score with eighteen ends played.
James Finch (Sherwood Park), Dan Ellicott (Avenue Leamington), Harry Smith and Scott Ashby (both Nuneaton) were adrift by four after five ends, which increased to five after ten ends were played. A bad spell saw Ashby and co concede twenty-two shots over the next six ends. The sides exchanged singles before Wiltshire score a treble with nineteen ends gone.
Rather than continue Wawickshire conceded the game, final rink scores Ward drew 21-21 and Ashby lost 5-35.
