Zululand Observer - Weekender - - ZO SPORT - Roger Lavoip­ierre

FOR the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive week, rain caused the can­cel­la­tion of Satur­day’s play in the Zu­l­u­land Open Sin­gles.

This meant that sec­tional play had to be played on Sun­day with the knock out stages be­ing post­poned to Satur­day, 24 Novem­ber at Mtun­zini.

Sec­tion win­ners were as fol­lows - Men: Jeff Hunter, Dion Leaity, Billy Kruse, Ge­orge Ste­wart, Barry Mut­low, Dareth McIntyre, Vlekkie Visser, Dirk Nor­val, Mike Bow­man, Bobby Smith and Mike Lovell.

Women: Esell Schoe­man, Michelle Mor­gan, Sharon Ni­coll, Glo­ria Gar­butt, Anita Scott and He­lene de Wet.

Ow­ing to the smaller num­ber of play­ers in­volved, the se­nior sin­gles play-offs are to be ar­ranged by the in­di­vid­ual play­ers.

I have been in­formed that the Bill Ro­barts Memo­rial Tro­phy tour­na­ment which was due to have been played on the 10/11 Novem­ber at the Em­pan­geni Coun­try Club has been post­poned to some time early in the new year.

The sec­ond round of the Toy­ota twi­light bowls played at the Em­pan­geni Bowl­ing Club saw last week’s lead­ers, Ali­ga­tors drop 8 places when they went down by 5 shots to Toy­ota (2) who re­main in sec­ond place.

The lead has been taken over by Rocky Plan­ets who posted a 12 shot win against Round Ta­ble (1).

The ses­sion prize, spon­sored by Sharon Ni­coll, was won by Deon Greyling who handed a 22 shot de­feat to TTR Du­ve­nager.

The all im­por­tant third round, to be played to­day, Thurs­day, will see the teams in the top half re­tain their points and con­tinue their pur­suit of the main prize whilst those in the bot­tom half will start from scratch and pro­ceed to play in the plate event.
