On a cold, miserable afternoon our teams ventured to Gumeracha looking to post their first wins. At the end they achieved their goal with both winning their respective matches.
In Division One, Bob Edwards got away to a fast start leading 11-0 early but a change of length end saw them have a battle on their hands finally getting home by four shots. Chris Button’s rink held sway all day winning by a comfortable fourteen shots. Ray Rattray’s rink went down by one shot but not without a fight. The lead changed hands during the day after the teams were locked at 11 all at the break.
Division Two also scored their first win with Bill Robertson and Ron Batemans’ rinks getting home by five and seven respectively. Tom Hennessey’s rinks had a close battle all day with the lead also changing hands throughout the day.
Next week our Division One team meets Mt Barker at Mt Barker whilst Division Two meets Lobethal at Lobethal.
