25th February 2020


After last week’s game was abandoned due to thunderstorms, many of us thought it was going to happen again this week, with storms during the afternoon.  But, “Jane Bunn” said there would be clear skies at night from 7pm onwards.  Both teams played at home and both finished with a win so all Edithvale players had big smiles on the faces.

Division 2 played Bentleigh and had an overall 29-shot win. Alan, Glenys, Kaye and Rod C faced a team that were a player short and our team controlled the game from start to finish with 8 multiples consisting of three 4’s, three 3’s and two 2’s ends.   They had a 21-shot win.  Bobby, Shellie, Sally and Craig surged ahead with three 3’s and one 2, by the 10th end they were 6 shots up.  The opposition won the last 7 ends and this rink went down by 5 shots.  Greg, John, Ann and Jim had a great game winning 12 ends with 6 multiples.  This rink won by 13 shots.

GREG 19-6               ALAN 28-7               BOBBY 13-18

EDITHVALE  60                   GLEN WAVERLEY 31

The division 5 side played Cheltenham and had a 4-shot win.  Andrew, Barb, Elwyn and Rod H started strongly winning five of the first 7 ends including a ‘magic 5’.  They then went to sleep for the next 7 ends, woke up on the 15th end getting a two, then another two, but it wasn’t enough to get them over the line, going down by two shots.  Diane, Peter S, Pauline and Janienne had a low scoring game with only three multiples between the two teams (Edithvale scored two 2’s and Bentleigh one 2).  Scores were level on the 9th end (five all) and the14th end (eight all).  The last 3 ends were won by Edithvale and a 4-shot win on this rink.  Peter W, Marika, Rachel and Colin had a close game until the last 4 ends with Edithvale winning 3 of the last 4 ends, including a ‘4’ and a 2-shot win

Well done to all players.  Next week’s game is at home, so a ‘SHOUT OUT’ to our members to come down and watch our Night Pennant players.  One of our players Andrew Tyrrell is still in hospital at the moment and we hope he is back playing soon.
