South Perth pennant sides sluggish after break
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.
