19th March

Tonight we played a determined opposition hoping to win so they could leap into the top 4. After the first couple of ends had been played, one of our rinks dropped a 4 & 1, the other a 3 & 1. SO we gave ourselves a talking to and said “NO MORE”.

From there on we played with the same determination and skill that has contributed to our winning formula this season.

Greg, Kaye, Doug and Rod H had 6 multiples and won 12 of the 17 ends. This rink took the lead on the 7th end and the lead continued to grow to a 13 shot win.

Alan, Diane, Glenys and Ann’s rink had a tough battle on their hands in the first half of the game. Finally at the 8th end, we won 3 ends in a row with a 2, 4, 3 and hit the front. We continued on and won by 5 shots.

Bobby, Shellie, Sally and Craig had a much closer game. There were some pretty tight heads and great bowling by both teams. This rink went down by 3 shots. Although the last bowl of the night by our skip Bobby was one of the shots of the night (Great call Shellie).

A great win to Edithvale by 15 shots. Well done to all players. One of our team members had an extra win at Hampton B.C. pokies before the game (I’m not saying how much!)

Next week is our last game of the season before the finals. We are playing at Chelsea against Mordialloc. Why not rock on down at 7pm and support the Edithvale players.

NB: Big Improvement from when we played this team last time when we won by 6 shots!

Final scores for the night – Greg 26-13            Alan 21-16           Bobby 13-16

EDITHVALE –   60          HAMPTON RSL – 45
