Southern Riverina news - - SPORT -

Ber­ri­gan While there were no wins for Ber­ri­gan in the first round of pen­nant bowls, there were some promis­ing signs for the sea­son ahead with five bowlers mak­ing their de­but.

Un­for­tu­nately some late with­drawals saw the Fri­day pen­nant team for­feit.

No doubt with some ladies to re­turn next week the team will be look­ing to get their first win on the road against Co­bram this Fri­day.

The two Satur­day pen­nant teams tried very hard against two strong teams from Ba­rooga.

The Divi­sion Two team lost 88-105 (4-14).

Paul Glanvill won his rink 27-25 and Rick Brad­bury came back from a fair way down to win 25-19.

Un­for­tu­nately Barry Hutchin­son went down 14-29 and Graeme Cle­ments lost 22-32.

An in­ex­pe­ri­enced Divi­sion Four team bat­tled hard against a strong and vet­eran Ba­rooga team and were not dis­graced go­ing down 29-53 (0-14).

Sid Gold­smith came home with a rush and nar­rowly lost 15-17 while David O’Dwyer and his three pen­nant debu­tants stuck at their game all day be­fore go­ing down 14-36.

While the team was dis­ap­pointed with the loss, they will all learn from the ex­pe­ri­ence.
