Tuross Head Men’s Bowls report

Tuross Head Country Club hosted two Bowls Finals last Saturday. The Club’s Major Pairs Championship was decided and the Final of the District’s President’s Reserve Singles was played.

In the Major Pairs Peter Bird and John Fahey proved why they are among the best players in the Club with a commanding win over a gallant Ivan Balentovic and Michael Kennedy. Bird has been the real form player in the Club and he gave an outstanding display of lead bowls to really strangle his opponents. Every end he had well positioned bowls that allowed Fahey to bowl with confidence.

It was a classic case of ‘if one doesn’t get you then the other will’! Bird and Fahey combined brilliantly. Balentovic and Kennedy did not bowl poorly – they had many good bowls – they were simply out bowled by a pair well and truly on their games.

Congratulations to the winners! They are deserved Champions!

The District President’s reserve Singles Final was played between Finn Hansen from Dalmeny and Tony Millard from Bermagui.

Hansen had an excellent start as Millard struggled to adapt to the conditions. He opened up a 10 -0 lead that proved critical. Millard fought back and narrowed the score to 14 – 9 and then 18 – 14.

Unfortunately, for Millard every time he closed the gap, Hansen was able to regroup and pull away. On several ends he was able to play telling bowls that turned a deficit into shots for him. To his credit Millard never gave up and he made Hansen work hard for shots.

Hansen finally prevailed 31 – 20 with both players acquitting themselves well. Best wishes to Hansen as he moves onto the zone playoffs!

Next week the Minor Singles start with two rounds scheduled for Saturday July 1. The draw is on the board. There is also a notice on the board that outlines changes that have been made to the Calendar for the next six weeks.
