Pairs League Round 8

Sunday 6th October

Perhaps Me and my Boy had taken their 'eye' off the ball (or float) with the title already in the bag, but it was an uncharacteristic fourth place for the champions as the other big hitters battled it out for the final pairs win of the season.

There was an ounce between the top three on the Middle Pound but it was Peter Giles who came out on top by that ounce beating Ady Larking and Paul Braund who dead heated with 3lbs 8ozs of redfins for second.  11lb 11ozs was enough for Adrian Hill to finish second and the Bude Bay Pirates take the overall victory (after a re-count at the weigh-in!).  Lake expert Kevin Hill won the Whalesborough section with 12lbs but partner Ady was unable to find that extra half  ounce that would have given the Lager Louts the win, it did however push them above the Tiscott Boys to finish third in the League by half a point.
