Being a semi-final, tonights match was played on a neutral alley. However it wasn’t as neutral as you’d expect because it was BARDS home alley until a couple of seasons ago.
Both teams scored 52 in the first leg, however we started to slowly draw ahead in the subsequent legs. Going in to the seventh and last leg we needed just 36 to win. Ian, our fifth man, managed to push us past that and we went on to score 58 and beat BARDS by 23 pins.
The final will be played on a non-league alley which could be interesting.
