HAWKS LOSE OUT TO BEARS IN THE WHITE ROSE….

Following victories over the Gloucestershire Javelins (18-10) and the Cornwall Blacks (13-11), the Devon Hawks were beaten by the Warwickshire Bears in the Area Final of the White Rose Trophy held at West Backwell B.C. With a shortened format of 15 ends in these games a good start is needed, but after 5 ends Devon trailed by 10 shots to 1. There was then a good fightback to tie the game at 13-13 after 13 ends. However, single shots were lost on the final two ends meaning that the Hawks rink of Scott Eveleigh, Kieran Kniveton, James Hampton and Harry Goodwin just missed out on the finals at Leamington.
