The Sum­mit Men’s Bowls

Stanthorpe Border Post - - SPORT -

LAST Satur­day The Sum­mit di­vi­sion one SDMDBA cham­pi­ons were in Chin­chilla con­test­ing the Group 3 State Pennant District Fi­nals.

In the semi-fi­nal against the Downs District cham­pi­ons, Toowoomba started the bet­ter, how­ever, the sum­mit pushed on dur­ing the last eight ends to record a con­vinc­ing win with three rink wins and over­all mar­gin of plus-25 shots.

The other semi-fi­nal be­tween Con­damine district cham­pi­ons Chin­chilla and Ma­roona district cham­pi­ons Roma was a real cliffhanger, with Roma win­ning on the last bowl of the match.

The fi­nal be­tween The Sum­mit and Roma was played over the first 45 ends in pour­ing rain with Roma hold­ing a 15-shot over­all lead.

Over the last 18 ends in clear con­di­tions on a heavy track The Sum­mit was able to cut back the deficit. How­ever, the Roma road train men pushed on by their very en­thu­si­as­tic sup­port­ers were able to fin­ish the stronger with two rink wins, one loss and win the fi­nal with a seven-shot mar­gin and ad­vance to the last eight state fi­nals.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to our jour­ney­men (to­tal round road trip of seven hours): Joe Straat­man, Owen O’Brien, David Stib­bard, Mick Mills, Brian Wilmot, Paul Zam­progno, Michael Sweeney, Tyler Sweeney, Rod­ney New­lands, Peter Ayrest, Dar­ren Stan­ley and pennant team cap­tain Roberto Capelli, who was very pleased by The Sum­mit’s ef­fort on a tough day, per­form­ing above ex­pec­ta­tions and rep­re­sent­ing our district and their club in great spirit and true sports­man­ship. Well done, men.

The Giants fought hard but were un­done by the War­wick Wild­cats.
