BOWLS NEWS

MEN’S BOWLS

Tuesday

Our first team in the Southwest League were away at Eaton but lost on both rinks so are now fifth on the 1st  division ladder. Our second team were at home to Collie Blue. Tom Reynold’s four were 9 shots up, enough to gain 3 points, despite Wayne Coyle’s rink losing by 5 shots. This enabled our second team to remain top of the 3rd  division ladder. In the 4th  division our third side gained just one point against Brunswick at home when Norman Gage’s team won by 1 shot on the last end, while Don Henderson’s four went down by 9 on the next rink. This leaves our third side second on the 4th  division ladder.

Thursday

Numbers were down for the peg-draw as we had two fours at the Eaton carnival. 26 players enjoyed a pleasant day, Ralph Don and Bill Hitsert taking first prize with 2 + 12, which on a count-back saw the triple of Jim Holroyd, Greg Dixon, and Clive Williams, in second place. Hans Queckfeldt and Bill Pearce shared the chocolate.

MENS’  PENNANT FINALS

Dunsborough’s first division and second division teams were involved in the finals played at Margaret River on the weekend.

On Saturday the first division team skippered by Mike Brown and Dennis Frost went down to Margaret River in the First Semi-final. They then played Cowaramup on Sunday in the preliminary final. Both rinks were evenly contested and it took a Mike Brown super shot to edge out Cowaramup on one rink which left Dennis Frost’s side to hold Cowaramup out to win the aggregate. Dunsborough now has a return match on Sunday against Margaret River. Plenty time to practice those short ends.

The second division sides skippered by Bill Hitsert and Tom Reynolds had comfortable wins against Margaret River on Saturday and were again successful in the preliminary final against Augusta on Sunday. They now play Margaret River in the final.

If you are not doing anything come down to Margaret River to support the teams. Games start at 1.30pm on Sunday.”
