Gwen Scott defeated Paul Matthews to finally win the Patron’s Plate. Michael Seabourne (Patron) was on hand to mark the game. It was a very close fought affair but Gwen came home strong and won by five shots after 27 ends.
Gwen got off to a flyer and led Paul 12-2 after 11 ends but Paul fought back to lead 12-13 after 15 ends. Paul kept the momentum going and led Gwen 19-12 before Gwen rallied with a four on the 19th end to tie it up at 19-19 after 22 ends.
When Gwen reached 24-19 it seemed all over but Paul saved a shot on the 26th end and almost saved another on the 27th end but “missed it by that much”. Paul scored 17 shots on 7 consecutive ends but it wasn’t enough as Gwen won the last 10 ends 13-2. Gwen won the game 25-20 and stated she was very pleased to finally get her name on the plate.
