Div 2: Woodside turns the tables
On a sunny afternoon at Woodside, the home team came out the winner scoring 69 to Hahndorf’s 55 shots, and thus exacted some degree of revenge for their 8 shot loss when last at Hahndorf green in October last year.
Con Harmer’s rink had the toughest battle against the four of top-ranked Div 2 skipper Ron Parry. Con, also at the higher end of the skipper rankings, had a modest lead after eleven, however the Parry juggernaut won all but one of the remaining ends to win by 14 shots.
After a vigorous start, and leading by 8 shots after six ends, Shelly Howe’s rink lost all but three of the next fourteen to be down 13-19 after twenty ends. Shelly’s crew fought back, winning three of the last five ends only to lose by 4 shots to Brian Johnson’s rink.
Bill Robertson’s rink was slow out of the blocks but gained momentum to lead their opposition 13-7 after twelve ends. This success continued ‘til the seventeenth (score 18-10) when Annette Forbes’ four responded with some precision play to progressively narrow the lead. Hahndorf hung on to win 22-18. Bill later acknowledged a few lucky wicks!
Hahndorf now fills the seventh position on the Div 2 premiership ladder but is looking to climb a few rungs after their meeting with Mt Pleasant at home next Saturday.
