RESULTS FOR THE WEEK
This week was all about the club pairs, with the second semi-final played on Wed. where we saw Barry Wright/ Mick Duprez up against the pair of Sparkles & Graham James. The game was fairly even with both teams playing very nice draw bowls, but gradually Barry & Mick inched
ahead and were never headed as they shut down so well the opposition bowls. They went on to take the game fairly comfortably and so booked their spot in the final against Paul James & Chris Godwin. Sunday saw the overnight rain clear off nicely leaving the greens a little bit heavier than usual, but the final was a real cracker with the lead changing constantly and no-one being
able to break away from the opposition. It was that close that by the beginning of the 21st end the scores were even and Barry’s bowl sitting inches from the jack. Try as they might Chris & Paul could not shift it and so Barry & Mick ran out eventual winners after a great exhibition of bowls. Well done to all four players, it was a great game played in good spirit in front of a very
appreciative crowd. Well, we are up to the last two rounds of the pennant season and we have two grades very much in the mix to win their competitions. With the 2’s having a bye this week, we were honoured to have Mick Duprez umpiring both the 6’s and 5’s at home to see if they could continue their winning ways, and they proceeded to do so and thus stay in contention to take
out their grades. The 5’s got off to a fairly slow start but gradually wore Greenwell Pt. down, and with the four of Graeme Carriage,Dave Munt, Rob Morton and Charlie Fucile playing so positively especially Grassy who looks like he has got his mojo back, all three rinks finished very strongly to finish with a flourish to take the big board 10-0. On the same green the 6’s had a must win game against Berry and had a bit of a fight on their hands with two rinks having a real battle, but fortunately the John Taber team of Adam Best, Dennis Ogilvie and Alan Clark had a very convincing win of 29-14 and so managed to drag the club over the line for a 9 points to 1 win. The 7’s played away at Sussex and the less said about that result the better needless to say they went down 0-10. During the week we have had a few games of club singles with Adam Best having a win over Dennis Ogilvie; Dave Chandler then had a win over Adam; and Dave Munt was in good form against Grassy and had a fairly comfortable win. Don’t forget to put your names down for Anzac Day triples; also Vets & Supervets day at Berry your names must go up this week; also the club minor singles entry is on the board, get your names on that too.
