Middleton Joy but agonising defeat in the Alsop

In the Middleton at Gosforth the match was evenly contested throughout. At 5-ends the hosts led by 2 shots, the game was then level at 10, but at 15 ends Cumbria had moved ominously into a 3-shot lead. Northumberland dug deep though and ouscored their opponents over the last 3-ends by picking up 24 shots whilst conceding only 8. Over at St Georges in the Alsop, the match went to the very last delivery and it took a measure to decide the outcome.
