In brief Echuca Moama Cro­quet

The Riverine Herald - - BOWLS -

THIS week’s pen­nant teams both played off in nail­bit­ing con­tests.

EM Green played off in Euroa, against an Euroa side who have been play­ing some tough cro­quet, leav­ing Green with their work cut out to take away the win.

In a great con­test for both sides, Green took the win in a six games all re­sult, tak­ing 71 hoops to Euroa’s 67 hoops. The best player on the day was Mavis Peters, who claimed three wins from four games.

EM White trav­elled to the nearby Rich River, where the pre­vi­ous con­test had re­sulted in a draw.

After the eight sin­gles were played, EM White held a com­mand­ing six game to two lead.

But Rich River mounted an in­cred­i­ble come­back in the dou­bles, claim­ing all four games to dead­lock the scores at six all.

On a hoops tally, EM Green claimed the re­sult by the slimmest of mar­gins, win­ning 69 to 68 in an in­cred­i­bly com­pet­i­tive, but above all friendly match.

Club day saw nine play­ers play­ing off in triples, dou­bles and sin­gles con­tests.

The win­ner of the day was Trevor Peters, with three wins, who would claim the Lets Do Cof­fee voucher for his per­for­mance.

Five other play­ers were tied on two wins, with Jan Tracy even­tu­ally de­clared the run­ner up.

In this weeks pen­nant game on Fri­day, the club is di­vided, as EM Green take on EM White, with an en­joy­able, if not slightly com­pet­i­tive, match ex­pected.
