Mijas Pair FAB effort to lift title

Congratulations to Ian Patterson and Mary Detheridge for their excellent performance through out the FAB Open Pairs Competition held at Mijas this week. Three Mijas and a single Lauro team were involved in the semi finals.

In the morning semis we were treated to good play from all four pairs.

Ian Patterson and Mary Detheridge started strongly against Paul Hughes and Kevin Westwell (Lauro) taking a 9-0 lead after 6 ends with Ian pulling off a couple of large conversion shots when Mary was unable to win the battle of the leads. The Lauro pair won 3 ends taking four shots in each of those ends, but were never able to close the gap to less than 4 shots and eventually had to concede the match in the 17th end to set up an all Mijas Final.

The Robertson took a 6-0 lead after 3 ends against Tommy and Bente Dahlgren in the all Mijas tie, but were pulled back and the lead was cut to a single shot by the half way stage. The Dahlgren's were never able to get in front and the deficit was kept at three shots throughout most of the game. The final score being 17-14 in favour of Alan and Lynda.

The all Mijas final was keenly contested in a tricky cross wind by the leads and skips through out. The lead changed six times during the game and the holding shot moving between the competitors. The game was all square after the 9th and 15th end before Ian played a brilliant conversion shot to take 3 in the 16th end which proved decisive. The Robertsons picked up a single in the 17th end to close the gap to 2 and then Alan just missed a conversion shot of his own in the final end which could have won the game.

Ian and Mary picked up a single to round off the week with a 16-13 win.

Thanks to the Umpires John and Bill, Sheila for her work in the bar and catering and to our fellow members for their assistance in the bar during the event.
