Despite drawing the Semi-Final match against Carlisle II, Penrith I lost on handicap. Ironically, both Alice and Eggert beat their respective opponents in the first League match of the season. Had they both managed a draw, as they did in last year’s Whitaker first round against the same opponents, we would have met Carlisle’s other team in the Final. Unfortunately, George and Alan both decided to avenge their previous losses at the same time.
