Tatura bowls:

The Tatura Guardian - - Sport - — Adrian Barry

Sun­day was the an­nual shield pre-pen­nant grudge match be­tween Tatura Bowls Club and Mooroopna Golf, played at Mooroopna Golf, on a warm but windy day.

There were seven rinks of four played over 21 ends with the fol­low­ing re­sults:

P. Le­sueur (s), F. Cle­ment, P. Co­hen and J. Hussey were down 4-12 af­ter nine ends but fought back to go down by one shot 18-19.

J. Carter (s), N. Tziros, D. Miller and J. Evans were up 12-7 af­ter 12 ends but must have thought the ‘bell’ had rung, los­ing seven con­sec­u­tive ends to go down 14-19.

T. Gale (s), P. Wal­lis, G. Tully and F. Brit­ten were up 8-5 af­ter eight ends but then had a real fight on their hands and were down 9-21 on 15 ends but made a fan­tas­tic come­back, fi­nally go­ing down 21-25.

R. Crotty (s), B. Cooper, B. Bordett and G. An­drus shot out of the blocks and were up 10-0 af­ter five ends but the wheels fell off and they lost 11 of the next 16 ends to go down 16-24.

J. An­drus (s), J. Rob­son, S. Bald­win and D. Westin teamed well to­gether with Joyce cap­tain­ing her first game for her new club and Ju­lian Rob­son re­turn­ing to bowls and play­ing as a third .

They had a steady­ing in­flu­ence with Dave Westin and Ban­dit Bald­win lead­ing them off.

They were very con­sis­tent all the way through and had a good win 25-19.

Wally Sin­clair (s), P. Boyd, Dot Best and L. Noo­nan teamed well to­gether and were up 20-7 af­ter 13 ends and con­tin­ued on for a 29-12 win.

Wally D. Car­pen­ter (s), A. Barry, P. Hussey and S. Tziros re­ally teamed well and went on to a 32-12 win which was a nice 15th birth­day present for Seth.

He is en­joy­ing his bowls and is lead­ing well.

It was a nice wel­come to Dar­ryn Car­pen­ter for his first game for Tatura.

Tatura re­tained the shield, win­ning 155-130.
