10/8/2022: TRIPLES LEAGUE: B-TEAM BLOW AT BYFIELD

ABINGTON B's promotion run in the Monday Triples League received a pullback on August 8th. For the first time in six matches, they were defeated. By the same team who inflicted their last loss, Byfield.

Only the one point was gained, by Dave Vernon's rink. Crucially though, Reg Jones' trio dropped a three on their last end to snatch a defeat from the jaws of victory, 15-17. If the same amount of shots had gone the other way, the game would have been an Abington points victory. Yet again, the margins in Division 2 are too close to ever get comfortable.

The Bs can at least be thankful to Bugbrooke for beating Byfield in their game in hand, and in turn to the division leaders Wootton Grange A for beating Bugbrooke. This daisy chain of results at least keeps the Abington side in second place but the gap to the chasers is now much closer than just a week before.

 

Bugbrooke and Byfield respectively lurk just 1 and 2.5 points behind our men. A home tie against the bottom team, Whyte Melville A, is the first of three remaining matches. It might just be the tonic the Bs need, ahead of games against both Wootton and Bugbrooke.

No similar drama for the C-team, who calmly demolished Roade B at home 71-32, and actually gained three points on Division 5 leaders Kettering Lodge - admittedly already promoted - after their shock home defeat to Express C. The gap back to Earls Barton B in third place remains 6.5 points. Meanwhile, Abington A continued their fine run of form with a 4-1 win over Barton's A-team, leapfrogging our fellow centenarians back into the top half of the top flight.

5/8/2022: ABINGTON REACHED THE SEMI-FINALS of the men's County Top Club on Tuesday 2nd August, despite a determined effort from visitors Corby Seagrave. The final tally of four disciplines won to one lost undersells how hard Abington had to work for their progression.

Phil Reeve held the lead for the majority of the 2-wood game but had to fight to restore it on two occasions. His eventual victory gave his teammates breathing space. And they needed it. The pairs and triples were down as he shook hands, and the fours only narrowly ahead. And later, in the 4-wood singles, Robin Adams would find himself struggling for the first time this year, 8-17 down at one point.

Ultimately, only the pairs failed to turn it around, a late spurt from the triple doubling their score after being pegged at 10-all with a third of their game left. The fours were consistent scorers, offsetting a habit of dropping threes and fours when they did concede, and Adams re-emerged from the brink to clinch his leg 21-20. Standing between Abington and home advantage in the final is the even sterner test (on paper) of Desborough Town.
