BOWLS NEWS

Tuesday

Our first team in the Southwest League just failed to get into the finals of Division 1. They ended up fifth on the ladder, Mike Brown’s four beating Bunbury away while Gary Davies’ team lost on the next rink. The 3 points gained by winning the aggregate fell one point short of getting into the finals. In Division 3, our second side maintained their position at the top of the ladder when both Wayne Coyle’s and Tom Reynolds’ teams beat Bunbury at home. This earned them a place in the finals on 19th  March. Also earning a place in the finals was our third side, when Don Henderson’s and Norman Gage’s fours beat Busselton at home, placing them second on the ladder in Division 4.
