Great Minor Round Finish!!

What a way to finish the minor round.  Playing at home Division One took on the might of top placed Lobethal and came away with a great win.  Christine Keller’s rink had an excellent win by fifteen shots.  Scores were close in the early ends but a five allowed the rink to break away and continue to increase its lead to the end. Malcolm Keller’s rink fought all day to win by one shot.  Scores changed hands late in the day but a great last end sealed their win.  Phil Nagel’s rink were in trouble early but recovered over the last five ends to get within eleven shots.

The win lifted the team to finish in fifth place.

Fourth placed Division Two played a finals prelude against third placed Lobethal and got home by four shots.   Ron Bateman’s rink had an excellent win by eight shots with Bill Robertson’s rink, after being well down at afternoon tea, recovering to salvage a draw.  Tom Hennessey’s rink had a great fight and just fell short by four shots.

The win gives the team confidence going into the semi-final against Lobethal next week to be played at Oakbank.  Supporters are most welcome to give our bowlers support.    Best wishes to all.
