Night Pennant Report 24th Nov 2020


Welcome Back bowlers to our 5th year competing in the SDELBA night pennant competition and what a great way to start the season off with both sides winning.  After our practice match last week, we came prepared with Mozzie repellant, warm clothing, and a hunger for a win to start the season off.

Our Division 3 side played Murrumbeena Park, who were one player short, so our favourite neighbour, Sally King, came along to help out, although I think she helped them out a little to well by putting down some great shots…and “NO Murrumbeena Park you can’t have her”.  Alan, Glenys, Ant, Rod played a thriller of a game winning 8 ends with 5 multiples.  On the second last end they were down by 1 shot, with great bowling by the team they got a 3 on the last end and won by 2 shots.  Bobby, Jim, Shellie, Andrew T also played a close game with the scores level on the second last end, alas the opposition won the last end and won by a single shot.  Peter, Diane, Kaye, Colin took 5 ends to get on the score board, but after that they zoomed ahead only dropping two ends by a single shot and a win on this rink by 8 shots.

ALAN 15 – 13                       BOBBY 14 – 15                    PETER 15 – 7

EDITHVALE  44                   MURRUMBEENA PARK 35

Our Division 4 side played Chadstone and with 2 brand new bowlers in the team they came away with a win by 3 shots.  Andrew B, Marika, Elwyn, Danny won 7 of the 17 ends and had 3 multiples. At the 10th end they were in front, but the opposition chipped away winning 6 of the last 7 ends and a loss to this rink by 6 shots.  Margaret, Stephen, Barb and Ian won 8 ends which included 2 multiples.  They won the last 3 ends with a very handy 3 and a 2, but only went down by 4 shots.  Ray, Helen, Neville, Janienne lead all night winning 11 ends with 7 multiples, a magic 5 and a sexy 6.  This rink won by 13 shots and a win to this team overall by 3 shots.

ANDREW 11 – 17                MARGARET 11 – 15                       RAY 25 – 12
