Thanks to all who played yesterday in the return fixture at Heckmondwike Petanque Club. It was good day and 7 teams from each club played 3 rounds which meant (er…) 22 games. The organiser kept all scores secret until the end but as the final game was being played it leaked out that the score was 11-10 to Heckmondwike. The last game was at that time 11-1 to Heckmondwike. Then for no obvious reason the Leeds team of Paul & Rosanna scored 4, 3 and 5 in three out of the next four ends ends to emerge 13-12 winners and the whole shebang ended 11-11.
Add this to the 10-8 victory for Leeds earlier in the season and it’s clear that there’s not much in it.
