Diss Flyers 4, Norwich Diamonds 1

After two successive 5-0 defeats, this victory came as some relief.  All eight players won a game - a good effort all round..  No match next week.

Catch up...

After the unfortunate withdrawal of The Hunters and subsequently, with all their matches being declared void (you can read the full story here..., Diss Flyers shot up a few places. However, losing heavily to Sprowston last Thursday has dumped us back where we started.  Still time to amend things though.

Old results...

President's Cup - Diss Waveney v Diss Flyers

This was won by Flyers 3-2 (standard format).  Team was Les, Diane, Russ, Pat, Liz, Mick.  Sally (newbie) replaced Russ in the pairs.

Old news - Gauloises 3, Diss Flyers 2.  Darren and Luke were so close to taking the points in the deciding game.  Came down to a measure in the end (the bigger boules won!).

We play at Les Garnier this Thursday in the last eight of the Plate.

Suffolk Coastal League - we will qualify for the knock out stage if we beat Framsden on Sunday.  A draw might not be good enough.

Diss Flyers 2, The Hunters 3 (58-47)

A disappointing end in both triples was soon followed with a couple of good wins in the pairs.  In the remaining game, Liz and Mick seemed to be in command but were out-gunned in the final moments.

We won on aggregate, all reached double figures in all the games without gaining any points.  On the plus side, it was a pleasant evening and the match was played in good spirit.

No match next week.

Rain does not stop play

Diss Flyers 3, Les Garnier 2

We had a heavy downpour just before the match was due to start.  The triples was under way soon after it had stopped raining, although we had to play across the terrain rather than up and down.  Cyril, Darren and Pat brought us level after the first round of games after a fine win.

Les inspects the terrain.  Make up your own jokes.

In the pairs, Les and Diane won in a flash!  After a tentative start, Liz and I then took control with some terrific team play.  With other matches being abandoned or postponed, this win should move us up two or three places.

Next week - Plate (last 16) v Norwich Stars at home.

Norwich Blue 3, Diss Flyers 2 (50-58)

I had forgotten to bring my boules so had to use Les's (40g heavier), although it didn't seem to make any difference to my play.  There were also some large puddles on the piste after a downpour a couple of hours earlier but they soon diminished.

Two well earned wins in the triples were disappointingly followed by three losses in the pairs, although two of those did go to the wire.  A few of us think that a bonus point for an aggregate win would be a welcome addition to the league format.

Due to rearranged matches, our next three will all be at home.
