HENTY skip Peter Forck has labelled the Swampies’ thrilling come-from-behind win against North Albury as one of their best of the season.
Henty edged out North Albury (3) by just the one shot to record a 57-56 victory at North Albury Sports Club.
Although Forck’s rink suffered a four-shot loss to David Benbow, an equally convincing win from Glen Harrison squared the ledger before Kerry Boyle sealed Henty’s victory with a one-shot win on the final rink.
Forck said it was probably Henty’s best win of the season after falling behind early in Saturday’s contest.
“They had a lead of about 15 shots across the rinks about a third of the way through the game so to come back was a great effort,” he said.
“Any away game is hard to win.”
The Swampies have tasted defeat just once for the year.
“Hopefully we can keep playing well and finish on top,” Forck said.
Meanwhile, in other fifth round games, North Albury (2) thrashed Howlong as expected.
The premier side in the competition won two of three rinks on its way to a 62-41 victory.
Noel Trainor’s mammoth 24-7 win set up the hefty margin.
Holbrook had a nine-shot win over Commercial in the round’s other game.
