Mtun­zini sets the pace

Zululand Observer - Weekender - - ZO SPORT - Roger Lavoip­ierre

AL­THOUGH the rain made its pres­ence felt dur­ing the first round of the Haig’s Mow­ers Zu­l­u­land League, which kicked off at the Em­pan­geni Bowl­ing Club last Sun­day, the del­uge that in­un­dated Richards Bay thank­fully stayed away.

In the women’s sec­tion, only Mtun­zini came through the two rounds un­scathed by virtue of beat­ing Em­pan­geni Bowl­ing Club C 12-6 and Em­pan­geni Coun­try Club 22-7.

Em­pan­geni Bowl­ing Club A, after los­ing 6-8 to Richards Bay B, beat Richards Bay A by the sur­pris­ingly large mar­gin of 24-7.

Only eShowe failed to reg­is­ter any points when they were beaten 13-4 by Coun­try Club and 10-18 by Bowl­ing Club C.

A long haul re­mains to be ne­go­ti­ated how­ever be­fore the fi­nals in Au­gust.

In the men’s sec­tion, there were three peeled games, and after beat­ing Coun­try Club B 1610, eShowe 18-13 and Mtun­zini A 12-10, Bowl­ing Club B are the only team who did not drop a point.

Richards Bay A beat Richards Bay C 13-11, Coun­try Club B 22-7 and then peeled 13-13 with Mtun­zini B.

Richards Bay B beat Bowl­ing Club A 158, Mtun­zini B 18-9 and peeled 16-16 with Mtun­zini A.
