Lock­ing­ton

Last Tues­day the women re­tired to the club house and cham­pers to cel­e­brate the Mel­bourne Cup day at leisure. No win­ners but a lot of fun.

In mid­week pen­nant com­pe­ti­tion the women lost to El­more 54-81. (An­nette Br­ere­ton, Betty Mustey, An­nie Haines, Kath Palmer (s) lost to Ann Wil­liams 20-30; Lesla Maslen, Rus­sell Shawcross, Lois Chugg, Phylis MacFar­lane (s) l.t. Bar­bara Holm­berg 15-23; Ann Lowrie, Lor­raine Ap­pleby, Mar­garet Davis, Pauline Hum­bert (s) l.t. Eve­lyn Locke 19-28). The team has dropped out of the top four to fifth po­si­tion.

The re­sults of the CVBD week­end pen­nant com­pe­ti­tion showed a loss and a win for the club.

Di­vi­sion two was con­fronted by the strong Moama unit and failed to win a rink in the 44-82 shock loss. (Ken Main, David Lup­ton, Don Is­gro, Rus­sell Shawcross (s) l.t. R Young 13-27; Frank Chugg, Ge­off Shawcross, Ray Hanson, Gra­ham Turner (s) l.t. B Tren­grove 17-23; Roly Head, Tom Davis, Alan Kauff­man, Jim Har­ris (s) l.t. L Saun­der­son 14-32). The team is rel­e­gated to sixth po­si­tion on the lad­der.

On the back green di­vi­sion four bat­tled against the un­de­feated top side Rich River.

Af­ter a dour strug­gle for most of the day it came down to the last rink.

The Phil Collins rink with­stood some real pres­sure from the strong Barry Kelly four to grad­u­ally win the game 28-20 and carry the club to vic­tory. On the sec­ond last end Collins drew the "bowl-of-the-day" to win the end af­ter be­ing five shots down at the head, then trailed the jack for two shots on the fi­nal end.

The over­all re­sult was Lock­ing­ton 72, Rich River 68. (Don Smith, Graeme Hy­den, Les Br­ere­ton, Phil Collins (s) de­feated B Kelly 28-20; Kal­van Stout, Phillip Cun­ning­ton, Stephen Peter, Bill Mus­grove (s) l.t. M Kerr 21-24; Ken Cun­ning­ton, Chris Ste­wart, Rus­sell Hol­man, Neil Haines (s) l.t. J Ex­ton 23-24). This was the Haines’ rink’s sec­ond one-shot loss in as many weeks.

The club had a small roll up for the Fri­day night prac­tice and meal of pizza's and hot chips. In the lucky mem­bers draw no. 52 - Bill Mus­grove was not in at­ten­dance.
