The team of Sally Brock, Barry Myers, Rob Sheehan and Phil King have won the Hubert Phillips Bowl, the EBU's knockout mixed pivot teams competition. They played Brian Senior, Justin Hackett, Sandra Penfold and Nevena Senior in the final which took place on 26th May.
The Brock team lead by around 2,500 aggregate points at halftime but gradually lost most of that over the next 30 boards, winning by only 460 points. Sally reported, "It was a match of two halves and we were very glad there wasn’t another set!"
This was a sixth victory in the competition for Sally and Rob - only Raymond Brock (seven) has won more often. It was a second victory for Barry, and a first for Phil.
