The Cobram Courier - - SPORT -

Both Fri­day pen­nant sides recorded wins with di­vi­sion one de­feat­ing Ba­rooga Sports and di­vi­sion two de­feat­ing Nu­murkah.

Satur­day di­vi­sion one saved the day by de­feat­ing lad­der leader Strath­mer­ton by 43 shots, win­ning all rinks.

Un­for­tu­nately other sides were not so suc­cess­ful.

Di­vi­sion two were de­feated by Fin­ley, di­vi­sion three play­ing at home to Jer­ilderie lost by 29 shots and di­vi­sion four went down to Fin­ley by 19.

The state sin­gles are be­ing played at Co­bram next Sun­day. First rounds start 9.30 am with sev­eral top bowlers from within the Mur­ray Bowls Di­vi­sion on show with top matches ex­pected.

Com­ing events: so­cial bowls on Tues­days; men’s trade day at Co­bram to­mor­row.

The next women’s trade day is at Tocumwal Golf on Novem­ber 28 fol­low­ing a break for the Vic­to­ria Open.

Pen­nant prac­tice is still on ev­ery Tues­day from 4.30 pm with all play­ers ex­pected to at­tend. Fri­day happy hour is a pop­u­lar ac­tiv­ity for mem­bers to en­joy.


All sides lost again on Fri­day and Satur­day. Not a good re­sult at all, not helped with a lot of play­ers un­avail­able but can­not use that as an ex­cuse.

The semi-fi­nal of the women’s cham­pi­onship was de­cided last Tues­day when Jill Toohey played Kerry Ralph in an en­ter­tain­ing game fought out right to the end.

Ralph won through in the end to play Ruth Bur­nett in the fi­nal on the morn­ing of Cup day.

Ge­off Mitchell and Peter Ware will also fight out the men’s cham­pi­onship at the same time be­fore the usual Cup day chicken and cham­pagne plus sweeps day.

The club has its Share the wealth day on Tues­day and a few more names are re­quired.

Women’s trade day is at Ba­rooga to­dayand play­ers please note that from now on start time is 9.30 am not 10 am.
