Amy wins handicap trophy
Posted on Wednesday, 10 October 2012 @ 13:44 BST
Topic: London Skittles

There was always going to be a new name on the handicap trophy once the final was decided, neither Ellis Sabey or Amy Pitchard having won the competition before. It was an exciting match which went right to the wire. Amy had a four point handicap advantage over Ellis and once more the handicap system proved itself.

After the first seven ends, Ellis had established a two point lead, largely thanks to a floorer in the fifth end, his fourth of the year.

Over the next seven ends Amy reduced the lead to one point. In her semi-final against Mark Fawke, Amy had gone one under in the final third of the match, so expectations were high.

Well she didn't manage to repeat that feat, but a couple of twos helped no end. In the final frame, Ellis was left requiring a floorer to win the match or an eight-pin to force a play-off. Neither materialised, leaving a delighted Amy to take the cup. As far as anyone can recall, Amy is the first female winner of a trophy in the club's history.

Full results

This was Amy's second triumph in three days. On Sunday she took eighth place out of 183 women in the Barcelona Triathlon.
