Mas­sive win for B1 pen­nant team at Swan­pool

Mansfield Courier - - Courier Sport - By LYN FOOTS

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.
