Second session saw a real upset with skip R Davidson playing out of his skin at times to pull of a shock 7-18 win against the inform triple of S Archer, S Foster and D Philllips.
There were times in the match where the Wymondham triple looked like picking up some big shots but skip Davidson made sure the Wymondham triple scored no more than two shots on ends two and 12 to limit them only scoring on seven of the 18 ends.
As the game went on the Wymondham triple knew it wasn't going to be their day as they lost out on several close measures during the game and were holding a six on one end till the skip came down to took shot.
The other triple consisting of D Durrant, T Emms and B Saunders made sure there wasn't going to be even more of a shock as they cruised to a 23-5 win.
