Today, Wednesday 17th March 2021, our Top Division team took out a nail-biter by two shots over favorites, Lobethal BC to win the Grand Final. With the scores locked away and Phil Nagel’s rink with one end to play, our team of Tim Anderson, Bob Edwards, and Rob Hutchinson gave Phil three shots at the change-over. Lobethal’s Darren Stansbury had two opportunities to reduce the shots held, taking out one of Hahndorf’s bowls with his first, followed by Phil putting his next bowl being the head as cover. Stansbury’s last bowl missed, handing Hahndorf the Grand Final. Phil’s rink won their encounter 28-18.
Jamie Burt’s rink of Graham Evans, Leo Lambert, and Barry Rimmer did not fare so well going down 7-29 against Wayne Zilm’s all-round consistent rink.
The win for Hahndorf is a great result for the overall team coming from well down the premiership table early in 2021. The team had only won two games by the 10th of the 17 rounds but turned their fortunes around by winning five of their last seven rounds.
Well done to all who have played their part in this memorable win.
Best of luck to our Saturday Top Division team, again against Lobethal BC.
