Friday 25th and The Seagulls afternoon game missed the deadline, but it was a result worth waiting for. They played La Manga Crusaders and came away winning 8-2, I must congratulate our top winning trip of Mo Taylor, Trevor Hancock, & Garth Slater by getting more than the magic 30 – by winning 32-9 and I must commiserate with Trevor Stemp, and Audrey & Alan Birch who lost by the odd shot of 15-16.
Monday 28th Both our teams are doing our utmost to stay strong for promotion only dropping 1 trip between them, the Pathfinders won at home 10-0 against La Siesta Pioneers, our top trip being Dave Southwell, Dave McGaw and Irene Mangan winning 28-12.
The Explorers won 8-2 away to St Louis Trekkers with our top trip again surpassing that magic 30 – Janet & Peter Parsons, abeley assisted by Carol Smith winning 35-6. Well done both of you making for a very exciting end of season.
Not able to report on Friday 4th games so this will have to wait until next week, which will also include our internal competitions results.
I can however report on 2 finals winch had to be brought forward.
Wednesday saw the mixed triples of Anne Stone, and Carol & Mick Smith v Dave Southwell and Don & Jean Fowkes which turned out to be a game of 3 halves. The first half Don’s trip pulled away to a 12-1 lead, only to be pulled back by the Smiths to within 3 shots, then Don’s team pulled away again to win 21-9. a much closer game than what the score would suggest.
Thursday saw Don on the green again this time aided by Peter Parsons and Mike Stone, in the men’s trips to play against Garth Slater, Led Daniels and John Rae, and what a terrific game of bowls it was, matching each other end after end with a final score of 15-11. Seems a comfortable win but on the last end with just 2 bowls to play John’s team was holding game and with that last wood Don secured a victory by bowling a perfect draw shot.
