The second game was more even, with each team showing strength and adaptation to the terrain. Maury voiced complaint that the gravel wasn't as even as some of the other courts - but playing in the Sun trumped any moves. We took the lead but sat on an 8 to 7 lead with the clock running out (near 1pm) - so we opted for even points around and the next round's winner would take it 13/12. We ended with an edge of the seat situation - opposition with the close point about 5 inches away from the cochonnet, but the front position was open at 7 meters. I rolled my two boules in, catching the point with the last boule for my team, and Tim opted for the shot, which removed only his own boule (after a newton's cradle situation).
