Round Two (second) - Draws all Round!

An interesting couple of games with two teams taking early leads - only to be pegged back by dogged play from their opponents!  Here are the results.
Team
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
F A E F A E F A E F A E F A E F A E F A E F A E
Barr J       7 8 3 7 5 4                              
Wood K 8 7 4             8 3 4                        
Barr A 5 7 3             8 10 3                        
Kesley       3 8 3 10 8 5                              
Fleming                               5 10 2 5 5 4      
Copland                         10 5 6             4 4 3
Steven                         5 5 3             6 8 5
Galloway                               4 4 4 8 6 3      
Robin and team started off in stellar fashion, fashioning a two in the first end and facing Andrew with four in the second end (Andrew did well to cut it back to one shot).  The Galloway team fought their way back into the game and indeed, coming down the seventh (and last) end were leading coming home having forced Robin to draw to count out two shots in the sixth.

Robin, in turn had a tricky shot to win the game.  It hung straight on a most annoying and pronounced straight bit and he missed.  The draw was the fair result though (he said through gritted teeth!) and the points were split.

In the other game, John was all over Brian for the first few ends and led 5-1 after five; Brian clawed his way back and secured a draw in the last end having scored two, then stolen two singles. 

At the end of the game, Brian was happier with his point than John!

The league table remains wide open with only Katie Wood on a maximum four points and two other undefeated teams (Andrew and Robin) on three points each.
Position Team Played Ends Shots u/(d) Shots scored Points
1 Wood K 2 8 6 16 4
2 Copland 2 9 5 14 3
3 Galloway 2 7 2 12 3
4 Kesley 2 8 -3 13 2
5 Barr J 2 7 1 14 2
6 Steven 2 8 -2 11 1
7 Fleming 2 6 -5 10 1
8 Barr A 2 6 -4 13 0

 That's odd!  On the original spreadsheet, the "Position", "Team" and "Played" headers are correctly coloured!  That's not just odd - really quite annoying a well!

Anyhow - no matter.  I predict that this one is going to the wire!
