NIGHT PENNANT REPORT – TUESDAY 19th JAN 2021
What a treat tonight with both teams having a win. Almost had a clean sweep with 5 rinks having a win and the 6th rink had a draw. Spectator numbers grew to three, thanks to Suzanne, Marika and myself cheering on the teams. Tonight, we hosted St Kilda and Cheltenham.
Our Division 4 side had a victory over St Kilda with 2 rinks up. Margaret, Andrew T, Elwyn and Ian won 12 ends with 4 multiples, one 4 & three 2’s. They got a four on the first end, dropped a five on the second end, then gradually increased their lead over the next 15 ends and won by 9 shots. Ray, Andrew B, Barb, Janienne won 8 ends including a Fantastic 5 on the 3rd end which put them in front. Their opposition caught up by having a 2 shot lead on the second last end, but a great last end with a three gave this rink a one-shot win. PHEW!! Ann, Helen, Pauline, Danny won 9 ends with three multiples. They managed to stay in front up till the 15th end but lost the last two ends and finished the game with a draw. A great effort by all who played in this Division 4 side tonight. With this 10 shot win they have jumped up another spot on the ladder and are now 4th on the ladder.

Our Division 3 side played Cheltenham with two rinks going down to last end for the win. Alan, Glenys, Sally and Rod won 10 ends on the night with 5 multiples. From the 3rd end onwards, the lead extended after each end. But from the 14th end to the 16th end they dropped a five, two and one. Have no fear the team bowled with gusto and got a SEXY ‘6’ on the last end to win by 9 shots on the night. Bobby, Jim, Shellie & Craig won 9 ends on the night with 4 multiples, including one 3 and three 2’s. An incredibly low scoring game with scores even on the 6th end. They must have fallen asleep for 5 ends without a score, but they got their mojo back and went from a 7-shot deficit to a 1 shot win. Peter, Ant, Kaye, Colin did a whole lot better this week winning 8 ends including 5 multiples, one 4, one 3 and three 2’s. Scores were even on the 9th, 14th and 16th ends but a great bowl by the skip on the last end, drew the winning shot and a one-shot win.

Next week there is no game scheduled as it is Australia Day, so there will be a social game that night for all members to put their name down to play. There will be prizes and raffles after the game along with a light supper. So put your name down for some fun and off course bowling.
