n Meon Valley suffered a 58-42 defeat at the hands of Banister Park Blue in pool A of the Palmerston Cup.

With Atherley Incorrigibles handing Hampshire Police a walkover in the other game, Meon’s was the only tie in the latest round of the competition.

Banister Park eased in front of the team from Bishop’s Waltham early on to lead 21-12 after six ends.

And while Meon pulled a few shots back over the next six ends they still trailed 41-28.

John Farley’s rink trailed their Banister Park rivals 13-4 after 10 ends.

They began to claw back the deficit, though. But dropping seven shots on the 16th end put paid to any hopes of a fightback as Pete Lebbern’s Banister team claimed a 22-10 win.

It was a similar story for Meon’s Phil Walker.

His rink were 18-2 behind before hitting form – but they could not prevent a 20-14 defeat to Rod Hicks & Co.

Adrian Booth did restore some pride, though.

His rink was always in front against the Banister crew led by Raj Kapur.

They led 7-6 after six ends, 13-10 at the 12 mark and held on to win 18-16.
