Co­bram crowns its club cham­pi­ons

The Cobram Courier - - SPORT -

Sev­eral championship events were de­cided dur­ing the pen­nant break.

On De­cem­ber 21, the fi­nals of the men’s B grade and ladies cham­pi­onships were played.

Keith Faulkner played Mark (Basha) Bald­win for the men’s B-grade crown be­fore a good crowd of club mem­bers and vis­i­tors at­tend­ing the club for a preChrist­mas party.

Bald­win was able to hold off Faulkner and ob­tain brag­ging rights.

The women’s championship match was a re-match of last year’s fi­nal­ists — Joy My­nard and Kerry Bal­dacchino.

Once again, My­nard found her­self be­hind on the score­board, but with some per­sis­tent and ac­cu­rate bowl­ing got within strik­ing dis­tance of the goal.

How­ever, this year in a re­ver­sal of re­sults, Co­bram’s new cham­pion is Kerry Bal­dacchino.

Steve Tat­nall is the men’s club cham­pion af­ter a tough bat­tle with Ron (Doc) Dougherty on Satur­day.

While the tem­per­a­ture pro­vided much bet­ter con­di­tions for play­ing bowls than the high tem­per­a­tures of re­cent days, the gusty wind chal­lenged both of these high-class bowlers.

There were only a cou­ple of shots in the game ei­ther way and, af­ter it reached 24-all, it was down to Dougherty’s last bowl to try dis­turb Tat­nall’s bowl which was hold­ing shot by about half an inch, or pro­mote his own bowl which was hold­ing sec­ond shot.

While he touched his own bowl, it was not enough to change the out­come.
