Muscliffe Magic are a good side. Their position at the top of the division two table had not come by accident so this was a tough encounter and fortunately, on the night, Parley were better.
The two triples matches were nip and tuck all the way. Sally, Paul and Tom fell behind in the early exchanges after which each end was won by a point at most. Finally with the scores level at nine one good end pushed Parley over the finishing line. Well done team. Meanwhile Ade' Juli and Dave raced into a big lead and then fended off a spirited comeback from Muscliffe to win their triple 13-3,
Winning two nil after the triples put Parley in a good position although Muscliffe were given some hope when Ade and Juli went down to four in the first doubles. All to play for.
The excitement didn’t last long as Jon and Paul wrapped up victory with 13-7 win allowing Tom & Sally the opportunity of relaxing to achieve a 13-9 win at the end of the evening.
This was a great game played in a good spirit with some excellent petanque from both sides. Man of the match for Parley was Jon whose shooting was back at its best. It is amazing how the sound of boule to boule shooting does the spirit good and lifts the team. Well done Jon and well played Parley. Now we need to keep that run going.
