Drawing The Shot
The fine weather on Saturday saw the completion of the Club Triples and the start of the Minor Singles.
In the triples Peter Berry, Bill Maloney and James Maloney were opposed to Mick Manning, Troy Summerfield and Joe Chambers.
An even start to the game saw James’ team leading 8–6 after seven ends but after twelve ends they had extended their lead to 18–6.
The remaining ends were shared equally with Joe’s team scoring more shots than James’ team but not enough to bridge the gap.
The final score was 24–15 in James’ favour.
Congratulations to the winners who have played consistent bowls throughout the event.
The Minor Singles game between Grant Fuller and Andrew Hutchison took thirty–six ends and was very close throughout.
After the scores were level at 13–all Andrew gained a small break to lead 21–16 but Grant cut this back to 21–20.
Once again Andrew moved ahead and led 29–24 before Grant levelled at 29–all.
Two shots to Andrew on the next end gave him the game 31–29.
In the second game Joe Read played Brian Christie.
Brian had an early lead of 8–1 before Joe moved to a lead of 14–9.
After seventeen ends the score was 15–all and from there Joe dominated the scoring to win 31–16.
Unfortunately the rain on Sunday prevented any games being played – including the three scheduled games of Minor Singles.
Last Sunday the South Western District side travelled to Tumut to play against Southern Highlands.
The pattern of results for the day was most unusual. In the morning games, only one of the South Western teams won their game. The Highlands side scored 83 shots to South Western’s 64 shots.
The afternoon games saw a complete reversal with the five South Western teams that lost in the morning winning their games and the team that won in the morning losing their game.
With the afternoon scores being 118 shots to 95 in their favour the South Western side won the day by 182 shots to 178.
Play for this week is set down for Thursday afternoon and Saturday afternoon.
Two games of Minor singles are scheduled to be played on Saturday with Ian Gailey to play Peter Berry and Mark Brownlie to play Ted Loader.
Entry details for the Club Fours and Mixed Pairs are on the notice board.
