Tatura bowls:

The Tatura Guardian - - Sport - — John Crilly

Tatura re­peated its qual­i­fy­ing win over Kyabram in the re­cently held Di­vi­sion 6 Grand Fi­nal played at Mooroopna Bowls Club, win­ning the match by 10 shots, 59 to 49.

Skip­per Nick Tziros, Josh LeSueur, Ge­orge Tully and Seth Tziros played against Jan McFadyen and es­tab­lished an early lead.

Although they were briefly headed at the half­way mark 15 to 17, they re-es­tab­lished their dom­i­nance and got home by 12 shots, 36 to 24.

Tatura’s other rink of skip­per Peter Co­hen, Steve Barnard, Doug Clapp and Ken Tee played Judy Wright’s rink and were well in con­trol on the 13th end and up by seven shots, 19 to 12.

Whether they thought the game was al­ready won, or Kyabram showed a huge im­prove­ment, Tatura was well beaten in the re­main­ing 12 ends and only man­aged to score four shots to 13 to lose by two shots, 23 to 25.

In that bat­tle be­tween Co­hen and Wright, Tatura’s sup­port­ers com­mented that Peter Co­hen played a dom­i­nant role in reg­u­larly sav­ing nu­mer­ous shots in the con­clud­ing ends.

On many oc­ca­sions, par­tic­u­larly in the de­ci­sive last four ends, Co­hen’s rink was down sig­nif­i­cant num­bers and Co­hen would ei­ther draw shot or cut the deficit sig­nif­i­cantly.

Even fel­low skip­per Nick Tziros, who was ner­vously watch­ing the ad­join­ing rink, stated that Co­hen ac­tu­ally saved the day. Well done, Peter.

As it is a team ef­fort with one rink up and one down, the Tatura Di­vi­sion 6 won over­all and all mem­bers can en­joy their prem- ier­ship medal­lions that were pre­sented fol­low­ing the match’s con­clu­sion.

Club events re­cently com­pleted saw young gun and classy bowler Josh LeSueur, 16, de­feat Nick Tziros in the 21 Up club cham­pi­onship.

In the B-grade cham­pi­onship fi­nal, Rod Kirby suc­cumbed to Steve ‘‘Ban­dit’’ Bald­win who has made a habit in his first year at Tatura in clean­ing up club events af­ter also win­ning the 100 Up as well as part­ner­ing with Paul Hussey in win­ning the club pairs.
