Sweet vic­tory for Gayn­dah bowls

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

GAYN­DAH in­door bowlers have re­claimed the Peanut Cit­rus Shield in a com­fort­able win over Kin­garoy, 307–234.

Gayn­dah In­door Bowls games di­rec­tor Muriel Glover said the teams fielded five pairs (10 play­ers) each, but a late with­drawal meant pres­i­dent Gary Tay­lor was a one-man team for Gayn­dah.

Tay­lor eclipsed the scores of all teams to score 88 points on the day, with the clos­est scor­ers Muriel Glover and Rita Davis (Gayn­dah) on 61 points and Dawn and Al­lan Bramer (Gayn­dah) on 58.

Tay­lor de­scribed the win as “a great ef­fort by all the Gayn­dah bowlers”.

“All the teams were win­ning three games or more out of five,” he said.

“I think some of our bowlers un­der­es­ti­mated their ca­pa­bil­i­ties.”

Gayn­dah’s bowlers also had the ad­van­tage of know­ing their mats and the slope in the RSL hall floor, Tay­lor said.

Kin­garoy In­door Bowls sec­re­tary Peter Wing­field was philo­soph­i­cal about their de­feat.

“It’s al­ways more dif­fi­cult when play­ing at some­one else’s home patch,” Wing­field said.

“We had rea­son­ably good games, ex­cept for when we played Gary.

“We won two games, I think (and) used the same strat­egy in each game: one near the kitty and one be­hind.

“The skips then work with what they’ve got on the mat.”
