Hobbs Cup Final: Treasurers vs Housing Admin

Tonight was the Pins Cup Final, aka the Hobbs Cup. We were drawn as the away team, and for the first 5 legs or so it was pretty even, however a minor slipup or two left us 11 pins down after 7 legs, mainly due to Treasurers having got two spares and us none. Fortunately Treasurers didn’t have a great last two legs leaving us needing 54 for our last leg to take the cup. Somehow we managed to get our highest leg of the match, a 59, to win by 5 pins, mainly thanks to one of our team getting our first and only spare of the night.

For some bizarre reason I was top score, a 15 spare might have had something to do with that though :)

As for the league, it turns out that the captain miscalculated, we still need one point from the last match, which is being played next Monday, to guarantee us second place in the league.

Special mention should probably be made of our captain Dave Weeks, who, as of yesterday, is now known as Granddad Weeks following the birth of William James Weeks. To be fair, Jon and Charlotte had a lot more to do with it than he did.
