What a great start to the season. Played at home against Lenswood, our top and third division teams had excellent wins. Phil Nagel’s rink edged out Con Harmer’s rink for the Rink of the Week by one shot: Phil being up by 18 shots and Con by 17. Both rinks gave their respective teams solid wins to ensure the rest of the rinks were well supported.
Bob Edward’s rink lead for most of the day but Lenswood came back at the finish to complete the day with a draw. Rick Babidge’s rink battled hard all day with the scores being no indication of the closeness of play.
Tom Hennessey’s rink fought back from being well down at the break to get within three shots at the end. Ron Bateman had a real fight on his hands with his opposing skipper very adapt at running shots. With the overall team score being one up with two ends to play, Ron’s rink lifted with a four, Con’s also scoring a three left Lenswood eight down with one to play. Tom had already finished. The status quo remained the same with our team holding on to the eight shots.
Well done to all players, with a special mention to new bowler Merv Trubee for his first pennant game, welcome back to Pam Grego after her eye injury and to Matthew Armitage for his promotion to top division.
Next week top and second division host Uraidla whilst third division travel to Uraidla to meet their Uraidla #1 team.
