The list of names that travelled to High Lodge for the final day of the Clay Shooting Classic Sporting had a tough task with Martin Myers’ 146ex-150 looking rather intimidating, but people like Mark Winser, Scott Greenfield, Sam Green and Stuart Rudling are not known to back down from a challenge.
The first person to post a threatening score was Martin Doughty with 72 on the Red course. And top international shooter Andras Szerdahelyi went one better for 73, though the tougher Blue course was still to come for both.
Mark Winser dropped seven on Blue, immediately putting himself out of contention for the top prize, but he still could take home a Zoli shotgun should he straight the Red course, however, that would prove to be a tough task.
Throughout the day, a host of shooters finished on 140 to potentially force a shoot-off in AAA-class for the Akkar shotgun and several prizes from Edgar Brothers. But when Mark returned 73 on Red, he went one better than the crowd.
Meanwhile, no one came close to beating Martin Myers for the High Gun prize or the Runner Up score from Andy Moon.
Cheryl Hall’s 134 from earlier survived a challenge from several top Ladies, but would ultimately prove too strong and her closest rival was Janine White on 129.
Andrew Harvison scored 135, which tied for first in A-class, but while he lost the shoot-off against Ian Schwier, he did enough to win the Veterans category.
Taylor Hedgecock and Peter Goldsmith put a new tied high score in the Juniors, but were beaten by Jake Moore’s 136 by three targets. Henry Bevan was the top Colt with 114.
