No joy in cham­pi­onships

The Tatura Guardian - - Sport - — Adrian Barry

In the men’s Cham­pion of Cham­pion’s com­pe­ti­tion, Tatura Bowls Club cham­pion Peter LeSueur played his first round and had a con­vinc­ing win, but in the sec­ond round came up against Greg Shilling from Kyabram, with Shilling hav­ing a good win.

In the ladies com­pe­ti­tion, Tatura Club Cham­pion Dot Best played Hill Top’s Stacey Col­lier in the first round.

This was a fan­tas­tic game and Best was the vic­tor by one shot.

In the sec­ond round she played Stan­hope’s Jenny Crilly.

Once again Best put up a great per­for­mance, but Col­lier went on to win this game.

It was a great ef­fort from both of our club cham­pi­ons to reach the sec­ond round of the Cham­pion of Cham­pion event.

Well done to both of them.

Mid-week pen­nant

It was great to see di­vi­sion one have a good win over Kyabram.

I do not have the in­di­vid­ual rink re­sults but it was a great team ef­fort. Well done.

Di­vi­sion four was not as lucky, but the main thing is this year, hang in there be­cause all mem­bers of our club are proud of the ef­forts you are putting in un­der try­ing cir­cum­stances.

Satur­day pen­nant

Di­vi­sion two played at home against fourth-placed Rush­worth.

The Greens were run­ning at 15 seconds and the tem­per­a­ture was much kinder than on Fri­day.

John Attwood skipped against Jean Sprague and this was a great game.

He was up 6-1 after six ends and things were look­ing good un­til the 10th end when he lost a six and sud­denly the scores were 6-12.

On the 15th end Attwood was down 10-6 and the fur­rows in his brow were ap­pear­ing again.

Things turned around and the team fought back play­ing mag­nif­i­cent bowls and won six ends straight, with a five on the 21st end to lead 23-16.

Typ­i­cal of Sprague, her team re­sponded and picked up a six on the 22nd end and then a one and two to lead 25-24 on the 24th end.

Attwood could only pick up a one on the last end and went down 24-25. What a great game. Tatura had three win­ning rinks with Phil Boyd win­ning 22-18 against Barry Weaver, Rob Crotty won 21-16 against K. Gil­bert and Peter LeSueur, after be­ing 17 all on the 18th end against C. Wil­liams, fin­ished strongly to win 31-21.

This re­sulted in a great Tatura win, 98/80 over­all.

Di­vi­sion five trav­elled to Euroa and had a hard day at the of­fice.

Ben LeSueur was un­avail­able and Ge­off Pieper stepped up to skip against E. Har­ri­sion and was down 0-20 after nine ends, but never gave in fi­nally go­ing down 14-42.

I was just writ­ing up what a great start Ken Web­ber had against N. Har­ris and I re­alised that he ac­tu­ally had a slow start and was down 6-1 after five ends and 17-9 after 17 ends, fi­nally los­ing 16-26.

Freda Cle­ment got up for a good win against K. Gaffney 25-21, but Tatura lost 64-89 over­all.

Pres­sure on: Mer­rigum foot­ballers gave their all at train­ing on Thurs­day.
