Midwest Times - - SPORTS - Joe Crid­dle

Ger­ald­ton Gold and Blue have bro­ken away from the chas­ing pack, with an 111⁄ point break over Won­thella Green and 16 points clear of fourth-placed Ger­ald­ton Red.

Both Gold and Blue have 56 points af­ter round 13 and both laid claim to ag­gre­gate re­sults dur­ing the round.

Gold claimed a 5-1 (73-50) re­sult against Won­thella Green which looked the match of the round.

Brian Wright, Phil Chris­tensen, Bernie Mor­gan and Rod Marsh re­turned a 25-11 vic­tory against Ed­die Dodd.

Kevin Ro­bart­son, John Bur­nett, Kevin Hughes and Terry Wil­liamson claimed the best re­sult of the sea­son against Gary Pre­ston with a solid 28-17 score­card.

The Green Ma­chines Tony O’Brien, Bill Al­ford, Nick Wal­don and Ian Parke con­tin­ued their fine sea­son with a two-shot vic­tory against Ge­off El­lis.

The re­sult placed them sec­ond on the ta­ble with 10 wins from 13 matches.

Ger­ald­ton Red’s shock­ing month con­tin­ued as they fell to sis­ter side Blue 6-0 (76-40).

The Reds sat on top of the ta­ble un­til round 9, with the re­cent demise brought on mainly by player un­avail­abil­ity.

The proven per­form­ers of Brad King, Col Mor­gan and Ian Thomas were gone dur­ing the los­ing run but the break in the sea­son is sure to en­able the teams to re­bound next year.

The num­ber one side of this sea­son’s pen­nant, Shane Gi­u­diceNairn, Brad Crid­dle, Glen Flee­ton and Lawrence Brooks were pushed to the wire by Jon Trot­ter, Gra­ham McLeary, Tyler Carter and Mal McKen­zie.

There were four shots on the fi­nal end se­cur­ing the 22-18 re­sult and win num­ber 10 for the year.

Joe Cukela, Trevor Smythe, Wes Jones and Bill John­son put the ag­gre­gate out of reach early and recorded a 26-9 vic­tory over Ge­off Hal­l­i­day’s four­some.

The shock of the round was the 6-0 re­sult by Won­thella Ma­roon over fi­nals hope­ful Won­thella Gold 67-39.

The stars of the day were Brad Pre­ston, War­ren Kennedy, Vic Luckhurst and Gary Cairn who won 30-8 against the qual­ity side skip­pered by Steve Palmer.

There are just five rounds re­main­ing in the Batavia Bowl­ing Leagues pen­nant sea­son.
