Massive win for B1 pennant team at Swanpool
TUESDAY bowls saw a great game with players having a random draw to be in different teams for every game.
After a fun day sponsored by Central General Practice the winning skip for the day was a tie with Elaine Peterson and Jenny Walsh sharing the money.
The best third/second winner was Chis Laws, and the best lead was Ellen Sheahan.
This is a great concept and I hope it will continue for many years to come.
Saturday pennant saw the A2s travelling to Wodonga and the B1s tripping to Swanpool.
The A2s trip to Wodonga was not what they had planned going down 108 to 69.
Graeme Tyers, Kerri Nicol, Rick Nichol and Sid Revell started slow but by the tenth end they were in front 9-6.
Wodonga stepped up to the plate, and by the 20th end they had total control of the game 22-10.
Mansfield kept trying, and even though they won four of the last five ends, they went down fighting 16-24.
Noel Jackson, Don Cameron, Lyn Foots and Enid Smith struggled all day and with Wodonga totally on their game, the home team had total control winning 37-12.
George Peterson, Elaine Peterson, Marian Ryan and Chris Laws had a great battle all day and by the 20th end were down by just three shots 18/21.
Wodonga finished the stronger to take the win 27-19.
The final rink of the day was the only shining light with a close game most of the day, Mansfield took a great win 22-20.
The A2s have now slipped to fourth spot on the ladder and will be hoping to change their fortunes with the next four games at home.
The B1s’ trip to Swanpool was amazing with the team taking a massive win 114-35.
Gunter Jarzombkowski, Irene Fuller, Kevin Nikkelson and Jenny Walsh were brilliant from the get go, and with Swanpool only winning seven ends all day, they were totally outclassed 34-11.
Mick Walsh, Kathleen Bock, Doug Morley and Alex Clarke had a good start and by the 11th end they held a two-shot lead 10-8.
Swanpool lost their way and Mansfield took total control, winning 31-17.
The final rink of Tom Tomic, Ian Morley, Howard James and Les Wood played a team one player short but were ruthless smashing their opponents 47-7.
The B1s have rocketed to second on the ladder and face Tungamah who hold fourth next round at home.
