Mid­week ti­tle tilts

Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - DRIVEWAY -

THE two South Perth Bowl­ing Club Fourth Divi­sion sides missed op­por­tu­ni­ties to move into pro­mo­tion fi­nals last week, but two mid­week sides will fea­ture in pen­nant grand fi­nals this Thurs­day at South Perth.

At Sor­rento, Mid­week One White de­feated Man­ning for the sec­ond time in eight days to move into the grand fi­nal. The 72-43 vic­tory also earned South Perth the host­ing rights for this week af­ter un­der­dogs Spear­wood de­feated top seed Sor­rento.

Vic­tory this Thurs­day would se­cure a re­turn to Pre­mier League for the 2018-2019 sea­son.

Also trav­el­ling north were Two White, who were in Quinns Rocks for their pen­nant tilt.

The Millers were able to hold on in a thrilling con­test, 58-57, to book a spot in the grand fi­nal, hav­ing al­ready se­cured au­to­matic pro­mo­tion by top­ping their divi­sion.

South Perth will chal­lenge Melville for the pen­nant flag, with both matches kick­ing off at Mends Street at 1.30pm on Thurs­day.

Mid­week Four Blue took ir­re­sistible form into their firstround pro­mo­tion match at against hosts North Perth, hav­ing won their pre­vi­ous six games.

The vis­i­tors played well and were only over­come late, even­tu­ally los­ing 57-68 in a tight con­test.
