Midwest Times - - SPORT - Joe Crid­dle

Ger­ald­ton Bowl­ing Club’s Mid West Traf­fic Con­trollers-spon­sored mixed pairs event last week­end at­tracted good num­bers, with the mixed event on Satur­day equalling the best nom­i­na­tions af­ter five weeks of com­pe­ti­tion.

On com­ple­tion of the two-match event, it was the com­bi­na­tion of Kim Trot­ter and John Lewis that won the day — the only side to record two vic­to­ries dur­ing the af­ter­noon. Sec­ond place, with one win and a draw, was Stan Bar­bour and Kaye Thomp­son, who came from the clouds to se­cure the top-two fin­ish.

Jill Adam and Rod Marsh led the event at the half­way stage but af­ter suf­fer­ing de­feat at the hands of Ian Thomas and Vi Far­rell in the sec­ond en­counter had to be con­tent with a third place in the ever-grow­ing event.

Sun­day’s Mid West Traf­fic Con­trollers men’s scroungers re­sulted in vic­tory to Joe Crid­dle by a soli­tary shot from Brad King, with Stan Bar­bour a close third.

The high­est score for the day was Mike Ford with a sen­sa­tional 50 points, ahead of Crid­dle on 46, with ag­gre­gate leader King record­ing 42.

Fi­nal­ists for the day were Crid­dle, King and Bar­bour with Ian Crid­dle, Mike Ford and Kevin Ro­bart­son.

The max­i­mum score of six on a sin­gle end was recorded on just two oc­ca­sions, by Joe Crid­dle and Ford.

King leads the ag­gre­gate stand­ings with an out­stand­ing 212 af­ter five rounds, with Ian Crid­dle sec­ond on 174.

Ian Crid­dle is fol­lowed by 2016 win­ner Mike Ford with 169, with Merv Grigsby and Joe Crid­dle on 154, and Kim Trot­ter on 146.

Round 6 of the Mid West Traf­fic Con­trollers mixed pairs and scroungers events at the Ger­ald­ton Bowl­ing Club will run next week­end, with vis­i­tors and mem­bers alike en­cour­aged to con­tact the club and be part of a pop­u­lar two days of bowls.
