Eels slip past Aldeburgh and into Adnams Plate Final

14th August 2014 - Adnams Plate Semi-Final @ Dolphin Inn, Thorpeness

Riding on the crest of the wave following the success of last weeks tournament at their home venue, the Eels Foot Inn 1 team made the short journey to Thorpeness to face the Mill Inn Aldeburgh in the Adnams Plate Semi-Final.

In the first two tense games, the Eels won a close encounter 13-10 whilst on the other piste, a 90 minute game saw the Mill win 13-12 leaving the match delicately poised.

In the third match Aldeburgh were 10-0 up, only to end up as 13-12 losers. This left the fourth game the possible decider and another long game ended in almost near darkness, with the Eels team squeezing past the Mills stubbornness and finishing 13-9, to win 3-1 overall.

The match had started at just after 6.30pm and was completed around 9pm, fortunately not having to go to a 5th game decider.

The Eels Foot Inn 1 now face their clubmates, Eels Foot Inn 2 in the Adnams Plate Final, to be played at Aldeburgh at the end of September.
