RESULTS FOR THE WEEK
The club minor singles final was held on Saturday afternoon due to the State singles being held on Sunday. Both Craig and Adam commenced the game very nervously and took several ends to settle down to some sort of rhythm. Craig managed to eke out a bit of a lead early on, but Adam
clawed the lead back and then they traded shot for shot until Craig got his nose in front by a long sequence of singles with Adam just not able to get the mat off him. In the middle of the game Craig got a bit of a mini break on his opponent and the mountain was beginning to look very steep for Adam to climb.Craig steadily increased his lead by single shots and no matter what Adam did
he just could not win the end, and thus have control of the mat and change the length and possibly the outcome. So Craig Barca ran out eventual winner 31-15, a very well deserved winner and a new face to go on our wall of fame. It was great to see two such unassuming bowlers playing off in the minor singles knowing full well that the winner will for evermore be a major.
State singles commenced on Sunday morning with the forecast not looking very promising. First round winners were Jamie Thelander, Matt Griffiths, Ralph Toivonen, Shaun Ellery, Paul Colebrook, Todd Cody, James Hayward, Scott Mathieson, Dave Munt, and Glen Dicko. Several rain delays occurred in the afternoon 2nd round but a few games were completed, and they were as follows; Matt Griffiths def. Jamie Thelander, Shaun Ellery def. Ralph Toivonen, Scott Mathieson def. Dave Munt, and Glen Dicko def. Paul Kennedy. The remaining games that were not completed due to the inclement weather will be finallised next Saturday at 9.30. Just a few reminders for all you members of things coming up. There are a few entries on the board for championship games, and they are;- the minor pairs, the mixed pairs and the mixed fours. So get out there and get a team together.
