Tuross Head Men’s Bowls news


Pennant Results

The recent rain resulted in the third round of the Pennant season being washed out. These games will be played at a later date if needed.

On Saturday March 11 both of the Tuross teams travelled to Malua Bay. In the grade 5 match the home team was out to make up for their loss to Tuross in their first meeting of the year and they did just this with a comprehensive victory. Malua Bay took all three rinks in winning 61 shots to 41 and grabbing a 10 – 0 win.

John Fahey’s team kept in touch for most of their game before fading to lose 18 -11. Jim Howden stepped in to fill in for an injured John Monks and his team was a strong contender throughout their game. However, a poor last end, where they dropped 5 shots, saw the score blow out to a 22 – 17 loss in a game that was much closer than the scores show.

Peter Davies team started slowly but they fought back well to trail 15 – 16 with four ends to play. The locals finished stronger to win 21 – 16.

The Grade 7 side continued on their winning way with a 64 shots to 46 victory picking up 9 points to 1. They won 2 of the 3 rinks. Ian Wratten’s team recovered from a very slow start that saw them down 9 – 0 after six ends. They won 6 of the next 7 ends to take a 17 – 10 lead. They held off a revival from Malua Bay to win 26 – 17.

Ronnie Richardson’s team had another good day dominating their rink by winning 15 of the 21 ends. They won 26 – 8. Stuart Graham’s team had a struggle all day and went down 21 – 12.

The Grade 7 side are undefeated at this stage and have a bye next week. The Grade 5 side play Dalmeny at home.
