Rand Leads from Start to Finish

English Sporting Summer League, Round 3

The third round of the Suntera Global Sporting League was held at Meary Veg Santon with 22 competitors taking part in near ideal conditions.

The leader after the first stand which proved to be the hardest of the six stands was B class shooter Will Rand hitting 8 of the ten targets, in equal second place were A class Ben Stembridge, Michael Cross and Rob Corlett with 7 points.
Rand was still in the lead after stand two with 18 points closely followed by Cross on 15, Stembridge was in third place on 13. It was status quo after the third stand with Rand on 23 Cross on 22 and Stembridge on 19.

We had the same running order after the fourth stand with Rand on 30 Cross on 29 and Stembridge one closer in third place on 27 with Rob Corlett one behind in forth place on 26, closely followed by juniors Joe Faragher, Zac Bellhouse and veteran Paul Mihailovits in equal fifth place on 25. Rand and Cross both scored 6 on stand 5 to be first and second but we had a tie now for third place between Stembridge and junior Faragher on 33.

After the sixth and last stand in C class we had a tie for third place between Mark Hepworth and Dave Morgan on 31 points, in second place in C was Jon Williams on 32 but taking C class with 34 points was junior Zac Bellhouse. George Davies was in third place in B class with 38 points with Joe Faragher second on 40 but winning B class with 42 points was Will Rand. Rob Corlett was third in A class on 39 with Michel Cross in second place on 40 but winning A class with 41 points hitting all 8 targets on the last stand was Ben Stembridge, but high gun on the day went to B class shooter Will Rand who led from start to finish with 42 points -well done Will!
