Di­vi­sion six win­ners at Mer­rigum

The Tatura Guardian - - Sport - — Young Joe

Mer­rigum’s di­vi­sion six scored a great win against Avenel on Satur­day. They won by 10 shots. Sparks McMeeken, John Bai­ley, Barry Lin­ford and Norm Arthur played B. Smith and won by 15 shots.

It was Norm’s first game for Mer­rigum and he ac­quit­ted him­self well in the lead­ers role. We are sure he is des­tined to be­come a reg­u­lar in di­vi­sion three.

Jim Arthur kept his eye on his dad and he was pleased with his game.

If the Sixes can keep up this good form they will cer­tainly fea­ture in the fi­nals.

In the other game Rob Carver’s rink played T. Hib­bert and lost by five shots.

They led for 17 ends but could not main­tain the pres­sure as their op­po­nents fin­ished very strongly.

Di­vi­sion three

The story was not so rosy for di­vi­sion three who re­ally needed to win to have any chance to play in the fi­nals.

Once again Jim Arthur and the Trewren boys, Macca and Con­ner, with Greg Pell pro­vided our only win for the day.

They played Noel Slater and won by nine shots. This group seems to play with lit­tle re­gard to the score­boards and this laid­back ap­proach cer­tainly gains re­sults.

The game was tight un­til ends 14 and 15 where Mer­rigum added eight shots to break away from their chal­lengers. Once again, well done. Barry Hub­ble with Stan Cold­well, Abby Earl and Graeme Hub­ble played Al­lan White and the game ended in a tie.

With two ends to play Mer­rigum led by four shots, but Avenel scored two shots on each of the last two ends to make it a tied re­sult.

Paul Trewren played B. McDon­ald and lost by seven shots.

After end six Mer­rigum was two shots down, but by the end of end 13 they were 13 shots down.

Although they reeled in some of the deficit they couldn’t man­age to gain the win.

In the last game, Joe Chant’s rink played Spud Furletti and was eas­ily beaten by 20 shots.

On ends two, three and four, they dropped 12 shots and on ends eight through to 13 they dropped another 14 shots.

This was ter­ri­bly dis­ap­point­ing as the size of the loss makes it im­pos­si­ble for the other rinks to make up the dif­fer­ence. It was a game they would all like to for­get.

The new green­keep­ers will be Rob Den­nis and Barry Hub­ble and vice-pres­i­dent Joe Chant will be act­ing pres­i­dent.

The whole bowl­ing club com­mu­nity wishes John good health and hap­pi­ness and we are in­debted to him for all his great work over the year.

Dur­ing his reign as pres­i­dent, the club has gone ahead in leaps and bounds and he should be proud of the legacy he leaves be­hind.

The de­fib­ril­la­tor night was suc­cess­ful and there was a good attendance of mem­bers who now feel happy to op­er­ate the new equip­ment.

Please make sure your 100 up is be­ing played on time.
