The Bears two rinks consisted of Aiden Maries, Dan Ellicott, Mark Smith and Harry Billington and Ewan Mason, Harry Smith, Tom Wheeler and Jordan Ward. The game got off to a very balanced start, Billington and co led by one with five ends played while Ward and co had played seven ends in the same time but trailed by a shot. A five for Billington helped them reach the tenth end leading by ten though Ward had slipped to a three shot deficit.

Another five took Billington and co sixteen shots clear with six ends to play, Ward’s rink had just three ends to play and now trailed by seven. Ward and co took the next end with a four to help them finish 14-19 down though Billington’s rink were now eighteen shots ahead four ends to go. The sides exchanged doubles before Worcestershire conceded, Billington winning 28-10, giving the Bears and overall 42-29 victory. The next fixture will be on Sunday 3rd July at the Regional Semi-Finals against Dorset or Somerset at Poole Park BC, the winners to play in the Regional Final later in the day.
