Game Review

The season couldn't end soon enough. The Blues failed to score after quarter time, and in two rounds of sectional play had lost by a total of 150 points. In fact, the combined difference in scoring shots in the two matches was 60-5, so the total deficit could well have been a lot more.

Jim Balharry came out of retirement to play this game. He was our Club Secretary at the time.
