Coached Update No:13

Dear Members,For the second successive week, Side 3 tasted that winning feeling. Against the top team at Pakenham, Side 2 was overwhelmed. And playing at home, Side 1 squandered a chance to cement a finals spot.SIDE 1: Unfortunately we couldn’t produce our overall consistently high standard of bowling from last week (36% compared to 40%). And when we did, it seemed that the opposition Skips were able to nullify our advantage.Although we had three rinks down in the first half, we were still in the game. However a 13 shot deficit in the third quarter blew the margin out to 17 shots.Although we battled hard to get within 7 shots with two ends to play, we dropped 4 more trying to chase multiples for what would have been an unlikely win.It was a very disappointing result as victory would have meant a likely home final. But with teams below us also losing, we remain in the top four. However to guarantee finals we’ll need to win this week.RESULTS: UTBC 62-4 defeated by Ferntree Gully 73-14. Currently 4th on the ladder we are away to top side Cranbourne this week.SIDE 2: Playing against the top team on their relatively fast green was always going to be a challenge. One rink did very well scraping across the line by one shot, earning a valuable two points. Amazingly, they only won 7 Ends. Is that a record low by a winning rink?We had one rink leading at half-time, but it and two of the other rinks were completely overwhelmed in the second half. It seems that the opposition won and kept the mat by playing to their strengths length-wise. And we couldn’t win the mat to alter the length.Big losses do nothing for players’ confidence, but at home this week is a great opportunity to regain it. We need at least two points to guarantee finals. And if successful, the first semi-final will NOT be at Pakenham!RESULTS: UTBC 53-2 defeated by Pakenham 125-16. Currently 4th on the ladder, we play home against 5th team Cardinia Waters this Saturday.SIDE 3: This was a close, see-sawing match all day. We trailed by 7 shots early but by half-time had evened the ledger. We crept ahead in the third quarter to lead by 7 shots, then a tight final quarter saw us scape home by 2 shots, with two rinks up.After going winless for the first 11 rounds it is great to get two successive victories. Against the second bottom side this week, there is a chance to make it three in a row and finish the season on a real high.RESULTS: UTBC 76-14 defeated Vermont South 74-4. Currently 8th on the ladder, we play away to 7th side Dandenong RSL this Saturday.What did we learn?1. It is easy to lose your confidence. But remember, while you may temporarily lose your confidence you never lose your ability. Let’s finish the home and away season with three wins and a “President’s Shout” with the pizzas Saturday night!RINK OF THE WEEK: There were five contenders this week. As mentioned earlier, one rink won with just 7 Ends. How annoyed would their opponents feel? Three rinks won 12 Ends. The rink of the week won 14 Ends, conceded one Multiple and scored 21 shots to 13. Congratulations to Graeme Mather, Durk Florisson, Brendon Ford and Gavin Bransgrove.
