South Perth pennant sides slug­gish af­ter break

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - Sport -

SOUTH Perth Bowl­ing Club pennant teams strug­gled last week on re­turn­ing from the Aus­tralia Day week­end break, with only two teams win­ning.

Mid­week One White were able to record a com­fort­able 72-50 win over Thorn­lie to con­sol­i­date se­cond place on the ta­ble.

Fri­day night women’s Red di­vi­sion recorded a win over Perth and Tat­ter­salls 33-26 in their fi­nal home game for the sea­son.

Satur­day BLK Premier League let a win slip away when host­ing league-lead­ers Os­borne Park, even­tu­ally los­ing 63-73.

One Blue North were soundly beaten at Bed­ford, 51-92 in a game they would have ex­pected to win.

Four Blue trav­elled to first-placed Pick­er­ing Brook, and though beaten 61-78 re­main in the top four and host bot­tom side Bull­creek AFA this week­end.

On Thurs­day, Two White were brought un­done on a light­ning-quick Perth and Tat­ter­salls sur­face.

The 57-69 re­sult means South Perth re­mains in se­cond place, now 7.5 points be­hind Como.

Four Blue missed a chance to close the gap on sev­enth-placed Os­borne Park, los­ing at home to Bed­ford 60-68.

The women’s Satur­day Two Lime side nearly top­pled Mid­land Mor­ri­son but came up just short, 37-41.

The club’s most re­cently capped state rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Scott Walker, has again been named in the squad of 16, from which a fi­nal side of 12 will con­test the Aus­tralian Cham­pi­onships in Dar­win later this year.
