Poole Win Phenomenal Team Battle

Last night’s Team Battle saw an incredible and very enjoyable scrap between Poole and Ringwood for first place, with the former prevailing by just two points, the lead having swapped frequently over the evening, making it one of the tightest of these events.

Moreover, Ringwood’s score of 90 was by far the highest second placed score any team has managed and would have won all but two other Team Battles.

The high scoring extended to the third placed team, West Dorset Jedi, who notched up 55 points, one of the highest bronze medal totals we have seen.

The top three individual points scorers were Oscar Garcia (37) for Poole, Adam Ursell (30) for Ringwood and Richard Allis for Poole (29).  A special mention also for Allan Pleasants who was the only person to go through the evening undefeated and indeed scored 100%.

And we should mention in passing that this made 5 in a row for Poole… maybe next time someone will catch them?
