    10th August 2018

    The Over 55 V team played away against Brixham St Mary.

    Pat Walton, Gordon Page & Bob Tame looked to be in a close encounter against A Wornham. The two teams could only be separated by 1 shot at tea with Marldon just ahead. In the second half whilst Gordon was acknowledged as the best Marldon player, St Mary's outbowled Marldon. Bob tried to redeem the situation on the eleventh end trying to remove the opposing shot wood but moved the jack to lose 3 shots. After that St Mary scored 4 on the fifteenth end to put paid to Marldon hopes and eventually the game was lost by Marldon 8 - 17;

    Barry Hodges, Terry Grant & Martin Rolfe started out well enough against R Willett. Having matched their opponents for the first five ends Marldon then go bogged down and allowed their opponents to pull away. The Marldon trio battled hard to get back into the game but Brixham St Mary always had just enough to stay ahead. The better finish came from St Mary as Marldon lost out 12 - 18.

    The overall result was a loss for Marldon 0 - 8 (Overall shot score 20 - 35).

    9th August 2018

    The Riviera B Team played away against Upton Park in the first round of the Riviera Mixed Triples Cup.

    Gill Hartley, Barry Hodges & Paul Stretton had a slow start against A Hitt and didn't really come to life until the sixth end to get themselves into the game. At tea Marldon were still behind on the scoreboard 4 - 11. Fortunately a brew really got Marldon going the proof of which was evident on the scoreboard as the scores started to tighten up. Try as they might Marldon could not quite reel in their opponents as they lost out 12 - 15;

    Pat Walton, Sheila Hooper & Terry Grant had a really close encounter in this one against B Sharpe. Time and time again the scores were all square. This proved to be the case right trough to the final wood as the score finished up tied again at 12 - 12.

    Sue Muller, Colin Whiley & Lynda Taylor always seemed to be in control of this game against M Sandford. That said, the opposing skip kept Upton in the game in the early stages up until the eighth end. After that Marldon took complete control of the proceedings not letting Upton score again as they marched away to a big win 19 - 6;

    Marldon won the game 7 - 3 overall to go through to the second round where they will play at home against Torquay A

    The Riviera A team played away against Paignton Torbay and won though in this first round cup game. We have no scorecards for this one but they will be playing away against Brixham in the second round.

    The Mens MDL B played at home against Brixham St Mary.

    Pat Walton, Ray O'Brien, Jake Woodbridge & Len Woodbridge looked to have the measure of this game against M Beckett. It turned out to be a close affair with St Marys clawing their way back to see the game close out as a draw 15 - 15 (A blank report card was submitted for this game);

    Dennis Quincey, Barry Hodges, Paul Stretton & Shaun O'Leary all had a good game against R Willett. Although slightly behind at tea, Marldon picked up a 5 soon after to just nudge ahead on the scoreboard. With Shaun marshalling his troops and having a great game Marldon forged ahead in the second half. The only blot on the second half of the game was dropping a 4 on the final end but Marldon had already done enough to take the win 19 - 16;

    Terry Grant, Colin Whiley, Martin Rolfe & Terry Bowles deemed this to be one of the very best games of the season against J Tuppen. All four Marldon bowlers had to be on their game to keep with Brixham St Mary, Terry (Swedish Chef) was pick of the bunch on the Marldon side for serving some excellent leading woods whist Animal (aka Terry) had to try and keep Players Player - the opposing skip under control. The game could have gone either way but in the end it closed out as a very honourable draw 1 6 - 16;

    Colin Egan, Gordon Page, Colin Stratford & Ricky Knapp had a tough evening against M Gilbert. Falling behind Marldon were always playing catch up but never quite got there as they lost out 13 - 23. A blank report card was submitted for this game).

    The overall result was a defeat for Marldon 4 - 10 (Overall shot score 63 - 70).

    8th August 2018

    The Over 55 W team played at home against Upton Park.

    Ed Sosnowski, Tony Mason & Graham Brough put in a good all round performance against F King. Starting out well they kept the pressure on Upton throughout the game with some big scoring ends. There was never any real danger in this one for Marldon as they took a comfortable win 21 - 9;

    Tony Till, Chris Lockyer & Terry Bowles were embroiled in a close game against M Sandford. Try as they might Marldon were always on the back foot playing catch up. It was a day where it proved that nothing was going to go Marldons way as the game closed out as a loss 15 - 19. 

    The overall result was a win for Marldon 6 - 2 (Overall shot score 36 - 28).

      *****

    The Over 55 V team played away against Paignton Torbay.

    Pat Walton, Len Woodbridge & Bob Tame had a very close game against P De Winne. Even though it was close it was always Paignton Torbay just ahead until the seventeenth end was concluded. On that end Marldon were holding 1 shot when the opposing skip fired. The result was the jack being moved and giving Marldon 4 shots - the first time Marldon had been ahead on the score board. On the final end Marldon picked up a single and with that took the game win in a hard fought contest 13 - 10;

    Barry Hodges, Terry Grant & Martin Rolfe played good consistent bowls in the first half of this game against M Charlton. Good controlled bowling saw them develop a 7 shot lead by the time a brew was taken on board. It would appear however that Marldon drank the wrong tea as they then let their lead slip to see the scores all square by the thirteenth end. It then looked to be a close game that was going all the way until Marldon picked up a 5 on the penultimate end to relive the pressure and go on to take the win 22 - 15.

    The overall result was a great win for Marldon 8 - 0 (Overall shot score 35 - 25).

    7th August 2018

    The Mens MDL A Team played away against league leaders, Starcross.

    Gordon Page, Ray O'Brien, Colin Whiley & Graham Brough looked to have the measure of their opponents in the first half of this game and were only 3 shots behind as tea was taken. The second half of the game was a different story though as the opposing No. 3 and skip turned on the pressure. Marldon could keep up with them as the scores mounted for Starcross. The evening was capped with a loss of 5 shots on the final end to see Marldon lose out 14 - 29;

    John Gibbons, Bob Tame, Doug Potter & Gary Routledge put in a great performance to get ahead early on this game. A purple patch for Marldon in the middle of this game saw the lead extended and although Starcross put in the better finish Marldon had done enough to take the win 17 - 12;

    Andy Pearson, Terry Bowles, Ray Sandercock & Pete Collings put in what they described as a fair effort. It was close until Starcross scored 5 on the seventh end to open up a decent lead. From then on Starcross always had the edge courtesy of some superb bowling from their skip. Marldon had no answers this time round as they lost out 12 - 22;

    John Morgan, Paul Stretton, Ed Sosnowski & Alan Routledge fell behind early on and aw their opponents get the hammer down through to tea to put 20 shots on the board. Marldon picked up a 5 on two occasions to keep the scores respectable for a while. Marldon however could not keep pace with Starcross as they fell to a loss 16 - 30.

    The overall result was a loss for Marldon 2 - 12 (Overall shot score 59 - 93).

    6th August 2018

    The Over 55 V team played away against Totnes.

    Gordon Page, Dennis Quincey & Gordon Hewer put in a good enough start against S Holland but then saw that lead evaporate by tea time. With Gordon bowling especially well Marldon got back into the lead once more only to see Totnes claw it back in again. That said, Marldon went into the last end 1 shot up but sadly dropped a 2 on the final end to just lose out 14 - 15;

    Barry Hodges, Terry Grant & Martin Rolfe had a great game against B Perkin. A great start saw them race to 11 on the scoreboard with Totnes having just 2 shots to their name. Marldon then got stuck for a while on 12 shots but kept the opposition scoring to a minimum. Totnes did get within 4 shots but then Marldon put in a sterling finish to come away as worthy winners 21 - 8.

    The overall result was a win for Marldon 6 - 2 (Overall shot score 35 - 25).

    3rd August 2018

    The Ladies SDL A Team played at home against Dawlish Marina.

    Maureen Stanley, Steph Routledge & Pam Hills had a storming start against B Ferrity. With Maureen having an especially good game at lead Marldon posted 13 shots on the board before Marina got going. The first half most definitely belonged to Marldon. That said, the second have saw a change in fortune and Marina came back hard. Marldon stood resolute and would not give in as they maintained a healthy advantage through to the end to take the win 17 - 10;

    Theresa Cornelius, Pat Edwards & Maureen Heath had a superb game against R Wharton. It was close early on but Marldon found the big scores when needed. A superb Marldon finish saw them dominate the last four ends and close out a great win 27 - 14;

    Pat Haynes, Val Howe & June Gibbons got off on the right foot against T Rowe. Scoring nice and steady saw Marldon take an 8 shot advantage to the mid game break.

Again a great closing couple of ends saw Marldon take a brilliant win 22 - 9.

    The overall result was a win for Marldon 10 - 0 (Overall shot score 66 - 33).

    The Mens MDL A Team played at home against Newton Abbot B.

    Colin Cradock, Colin Stratford, Shaun O'Leary & Graham Brough had one of those see saw games against E Baker. Colin S was having a great game and al was looking well until a dropped 6 on the fifteenth end put a fly in the ointment. Marldon battled back to be just 1 shot behind going into the final end. Sadly it was not to be. Newton scored 2 and with that Marlon lost out in this battle 18 - 21;

    John Gibbons, Bob Tame, Alan Routledge & Gary Routledge had a slow start against B Bolt but just kept plugging along and what was as they describe a difficult rink four for accuracy. Let's hope the green was set out on the yellow markers! This plugging along saw the scores all square after eight ends before Newton Abbot took the lead on the next end. Oh dear, what happens next? Well Marldon won all the remaining ends just plugging along taking 23 unanswered shots. The game finished up with Marldon just winning 31 - 11. You can't beat emotion can you?!!;

    Andy Pearson, Ray Sandercock, Barry Bailey & Pete Collings looked all at sea in this game against T Chapman. Falling behind in the first half it looked like the writing was on the wall. Marldon battled back but then saw Newton pull away again to hold 10 shot lead and just four ends to play. Somehow Marldon found another couple of gears and scored 12 unanswered shots in the remaining ends to take an unlikely victory 24 - 22;

    Tony Mason, Bryan Salter, Ed Sosnowski & Tony Powell had to admit they were out bowled in all departments in this game against D Hurrel. Marldon fell behind in the early ends and found they had no real answer to the onslaught. They kept their heads, fought hard but all to no avail as they recorded a defeat 11 - 25.

    The overall result was a victory for Marldon 10 - 4 (Overall shot score 84 - 79).

    The Riviera A Team played their latest game away against Torquay B.

    Pat Edwards, Carole Page & Gordon Hewer had a good close game against M Brown. It looked with a handful of ends to go that Marldon had done enough to sneak this one but Torquay put in a great finish and to see Marldon just lose out 15 - 16;

    Theresa Cornelius, Ray O'Brien & Martin Rolfe would have preferred to have stayed at home rather than endure this game against J Perret. Marldon won just three ends in this game amassing 5 shots for their efforts. Meanwhile Torquay ran away with it posting a big score on the board having played an excellent game. The final result, a loss for Marldon 5 - 31!!;

    Pam Hills, Gordon Page & Maureen Heath stormed away in this game against R Perret. By tea the score was 13 - 2 in favour of Marldon. Post tea Torquay put in some good ends picking up 7 unanswered shots but Marldon had already done enough to take the win 18 - 10.

    The overall result was a loss for Marldon 2 - 8 (Overall shot score 38 - 57).

    The Riviera B Team played at home against Totnes.

    Carlo Braganolo, Maureen Stanley & Paul Stretton didn't have a good day at the office against P Davies. Early ends saw it quite close but then Totnes went up a gear and just pulled away to hand defeat to Marldon 9 - 23. (only a scorecard was submitted for this game);

    Pat Walton, Sue Muller & Lynda Taylor started out in what looked to be a tight encounter against B Perkins. All was looking good as the game progressed with Marldon picking up some good shot counts and were holding an 8 shot lead with three ends to play. Sadly though, they lost the last three ends shipping 13 shots against and with that lost the game 16 - 21

    Barry Hodges, Gill Hartley & Colin Whiley played well as a unit against J O'Brien. This was always a close game and it could have gon either way but a 4 picked up on the sixteenth end helped Marldon over the line as winners 16 - 13;

    The overall result was a defeat for Marldon 2 - 8 (Overall shot score 41 - 57).

    The Mens MDL B played at home against Newton Abbot C.

    Ray O'Brien, Dennis Quincey, Jake Woodbridge & Len Woodbridge had a tough time against B Writman. Falling behind early on they were always playing catchup. It wasn't to be on this occasion as Marldon lost out 12 - 22 (A blank report card was submitted for this game);

    Barry Hodges, Paul Stretton, Shaun O'Leary & Bryan Salter fell behind early on against H Fox but fought back well to level the scores by the seventeenth end. It was all to play for. Marldon just got ahead on the next end but then lost out on the final three ends to lose the game 17 - 21;

    Pat Walton (Sam Eagle), Colin Whiley (Fozzie Bear), Martin Rolfe (Beaker) & Terry Bowles (Animal) had a steady start for them against T Whitehead. Pat played well at lead and as a rink got it together after seven ends with some heavy scoring to follow. Martin, named as Players Player had a superb game which helped the rink (Now known as the Muppets) put in a convincing performance culminating in an excellent win 34 - 10;

    PS. Terry Grant will be the Swedish Chef!

    Colin Egan, Gordon Page, Colin Stratford & Ricky Knapp put in a solid team effort against M Barrett. After a tight start Marldon found the scoring line and length in both directions and dominated the heads. This was clearly demonstrated on the seventeenth end when Marldon picked up 7 shots - it is alleged the skip failed with his last wood to take the hot shot, something for the selectors to think about!! Undeterred they continued to the end to claim a fantastic win 33 - 12.

    The overall result was a win for Marldon 10 - 4 (Overall shot score 96 - 65).

    1st August 2018

    The Over 55 W team played at home against Torquay.

    Terry Bowles, Ed Sosnowski & & Tony Powell had a great game against M Kellow. With Terry proving to be the pick of the bunch at lead Marldon stormed to a 14 - 0 lead after just four ends. After that Torquay did put some winning ends in but the damage was already done as Marldon maximised home advantage on a superb green winning 24 - 14;

    Tony Till, Tony Mason & Graham Brough also had a good game against E Leason. With the Marldon trio all on form they got themselves ahead early on and always kept themselves there posting a win 18 - 14. 

    The overall result was a win for Marldon 8 - 0 (Overall shot score 42 - 28).

      *****

    The Over 55 V team played at home against Brixham.

    Ray O'Brien, Dennis Quincey & Colin Whiley looked to have control of this game in the first half against T Pearce. The second half however was a different story with Brixham dominating and handing Marldon a defeat 15 - 27. (A blank report card was submitted for this game);

    Barry Hodges, Terry Grant & Martin Rolfe took an early lead against D Bunney before Brixham fought back. There were only 2 shots in it at tea. Marldon then slightly extended their lead and had to fend off a fight back from Brixham. Fortunately, Marldon had enough in the tank and maintained a 4 shot cushion through to the end posting a hard fought win 17 - 13.

    The overall result was a loss for Marldon 2 - 6 (Overall shot score 32 - 40).

    The Mens MDL A Team played at home against Dartmouth.

    Steve Brilli, Colin Stratford, Colin Cradock & Graham Brough was a new combination bowling against W Varnam.

Marldon eased away on the scoreboard maintaining their lead and closing the game out with a win 22 - 18;

    John Gibbons, Bob Tame, Doug Potter & Gary Routledge put in a magnificent performance against R Hawkins. From the off, Marldon put up long jacks and found they could control the game from there. With heavy scoring throughout Marldon built a substantial lead which Dartmouth could not deal with. Marldon came out with a superb win 36 - 7;

    Bryan Salter, Ray Sandercock, Barry Bailey & Pete Collings endured a close game throughout against D Sherlock. There was never much in the scoring and on many occasions it was all level on the scoreboard. Indeed this is the way it ended with scores tied 14 - 14. The highlights of the game (as reported) were that Ray had two good shots, one on the sixteenth end and the other on the seventeenth end and he drank the tea from rink 4 rather than his own on rink 3!;

    Tony Mason, Terry Bowles, Ed Sosnowski & Tony Powell played a steady game against P Caddy. Marldon enjoyed a critical period just before tea picking up 10 shots to hold a healthy lead. The second half of the game was about consolidating that lead and keeping Dartmouth in check. This was achieved with Marldon taking the win 23 - 17.

    The overall result was a victory for Marldon 13 - 1 (Overall shot score 95 - 56).
