Tregony come through in final round of Cornwall summer league

After trailing a win or two behind St Columb Major's Coaching Inn PC all season, Tregony PC produced a big score against the leaders in the final round to take the 2018 summer league title. This is the third year in succession the Tregony club has won the league.

Both games in the final round of the six-leg competition were played on Sunday 23 September, with Tregony at home to Coaching Inn and Pendeen's North Inn away to Vogue PC at St Day.

Pete Lynas and Paul Rundle of the Tregony team were in Guernsey for the Open this weekend, so regular Tuesday-night player Keith Redfern was drafted in (thanks Keith!) to join Susan Wiliamson and Graeme Kirkham against the visiting team of Dion Beechey, Roy Pemberton and Rob Sullivan.

After the five previous rounds Coaching Inn held a 12-11 lead over Tregony in games won, needing two wins from this leg to avoid a draw, which could have meant a Tregony win on a better points difference. In the event all three games went to Tregony, with scores of 13-5, 13-4 and 13-3, giving the Roseland team a final tally of 14 wins from the 18 games played and an overall points difference of +87. Coaching Inn's final score for second place was 11 wins and +13.

In the other final round match Vogue's Lena Daddow, Andrew Jarvis and Paul Lumley faced Colin 'Boot' Booth, Mark Hypponen and Bill Kingdon for the North Inn. The home team started strongly, with Vogue taking the first game 13-1, but North Inn came back to take the second and third games 11-8 and - another big margin - 13-1.

Vogue ends the competition in third place with six wins from 18 games and -21 with North Inn PC on four wins and -79.
