Zululand Eyethu - - SPORT • EZIMIDLALO - Larry Bent­ley

THE bowlers par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Horn­bill Bowls Trophy over the week­end in eShowe had to face di­verse weather con­di­tions through­out the com­pe­ti­tion.

Rainy and over­cast con­di­tions on Satur­day gave way to hot and windy weather on Sunday mak­ing bowl­ing very dif­fi­cult with gust­ing cross winds.

The team of Steve Ober­holzer, Glo­ria Gar­butt, Mar­garet van Heus­den and Chalk Kell­away rep­re­sent­ing Em­pan­geni Bowl­ing Club showed they had what it takes and were run­away win­ners.

Af­ter lead­ing into the sec­ond day they proved too strong for the op­po­si­tion and won with an im­pres­sive fi­nal score of 50+43.

Mtun­zini who fin­ished third on the sec­ond day, man­aged to fin­ish in sec­ond place with a score of 14+28, while Anita Scott’s Richards Bay team slipped to third place with -7+27.

The main spon­sor War­wick Wealth, rep­re­sented by Bobby Beakes has al­ready un­der­taken to spon­sor the 2018 com­pe­ti­tion.
