By defeating the home team of Tantogården, in this weekend's final and by far best match, Uppsala managed to hold on to the five point lead the team had before this weekend.
On Saturday the conditions where quite tough with very windy weather and the results were quite much higher than normal on the Tantogården beton course. Actually 15 out of 28 matches had a winning result of 150 or higher meaning (over 30,0 team average). On Sunday the wind was almost gone and the results were lower in the last 3 rounds.
In the final match of the week Tantogården had, by winning against Uppsala, a chance to shrink the margin up to Uppsala to only one point. Tantogården had also played better than Uppsala before this last game and had won all their six first games while Uppsala surprisingly lost their third game against Sundsvall.
But once again Uppsala showed what it means to be best when it counts the most and started the final match in a furiously manner, leaving Tantogården behind. Fredrik Persson started the last round as starter by acing 7 of the nine first lanes and the whole team had for quite long a blue team result with less than 1,33 strokes per lane. But as usual Tantogården never gives in and in the end the margin was only 4 strokes up for Uppsala in the by far best game of the weekend (138-142).
Uppsala now leading the table on 26 points and Tantogården is second on 21 points. Kungälv, which made a good weekend, is third on 18 points and Skoghall had once again a quite disappointing weekend and is now in fourth position on 15 points.
In the other end of the table it’s still an open race since the jumbo-tam of Olofström won their last two games against Sundsvall and Örebro and now still have a chance on avoiding being send down to first division. Södertälje has 10points, Örebro 9, Sundsvall 7 and Olofström has 6 points. There will be nerves in this part of the table in the last round that will be played on eternit in Uppsala in the end of July.
Best individually this weekend was Tantogårdens Finn Oskari Vihervaara which was by far best on a fine 28,0 average in these difficult conditions.
This weekend's team was:
First Oskari Vihervaara, Tantogården, 28,0
2nd Dan Trulsson, Tantogården, 28,6
3rd Stefan Björk, Skoghall, 28,9
4th Fredrik Persson, Uppsala, 29,0
4th Torgny Kjellström, Kungälv 29,0
4th Anders Olsson, Uppsala, 29,0
The only blue single lap was played in the last game of Torgny Kjellström who scored 24.
