29th January

Unfortunately I couldn’t play tonight, but it was great to watch some great bowls and some really skilled shots or some may call them real a#*@! Shots.

Tuesday 29th Jan 2019 saw the second half of the season start with round 6 played against Hampton RSL.  It was a close game all night with 2 rinks up and a win to Edithvale.

Our game was played at Chelsea with a slight cool breeze, much to the relief of the players who had played pennant that day.

Greg’s rink with Kaye, Ann and Peter had a great battle with a lead that changed a couple of times but Edithvale took control of the game and won on the night by 4 shots.

Bobby’s rink with Shellie, Sally and Craig, started strongly and played well, holding onto the lead all night.  The opposition came close, but our players fought back to win by 3 shots.

Alan, Ant, Pauline and Rod battled all night with many ends holding shot until the opposition 3rd or skip taking our bowls out.  When our players won an end it was mostly by 1 shot.  Sadly they lost by a single shot.

Thanks to our fill in players Alan Cousens, Ant Cameron and Peter Sale for helping out on the night.  Edithvale won overall by 6 shots.

Greg 18-14                                    Bobby 12-9                                    Alan 11-12

EDITHVALE – 41                          MOORABBIN – 35

Edithvale is currently 3rd on the ladder (percentage only).  Next week’s game is at Mordialloc.
