Halfway and 2-1 down, time to bring out the big guns.
Game 4, into the arena came the canny Scot Alec Lyon and his sidekick Peter Champness and they did the business with a great win of 5&4; well played both of you.
Game 5, a new pairing , the 2 J’s Joe Jowett and Jon Searl had a very tough task against a good Cricket St. Thomas pair, but played well and won 4&3.
Game 6, all we need is a half to win the match, the final pair saw Rich Bartin(10) and Len Collin (26) take on Stuart Pope (20) and John MacOmish (20) in a very tight and tense match that went to the last hole, with a win for Long Sutton.
The final score Long Sutton 4 – 2 Cricket St. Thomas.
