Minor Pairs Championship

The final of the Minor Pairs was played on Friday between Rod Holman and Peter Jones (skip) and Mick Cavic and John Scott (skip). It was a close game early on with Peter and Rod leading six to five after six ends before they put in a run of good ends to lead 13 to six after 11 ends and 24 to seven after 14 ends. Ends were shared after that but the bird had flown and Peter and Rod went on to a 26 to 11 win. Congratulations Peter and Rod, that was a well-deserved win and congratulations also to Mick and John on playing well throughout the Championship.


Well, it would be nearly impossible to have such great matches to watch compared to those presented on Sunday. Firstly, Dennis Maggs played David Herman and it was close all the way with a 50 all score after 10 ends and all square on five occasions before Dave led 98 to 92 with one end to go. On the last end Dennis picked up first and second shot to reach 99 but Dave picked up third and fourth shot to reach 101and take this enthralling match. In the other match Gary Murane played Peter Dillon and after squaring the score on a couple of occasions early Peter took the lead, narrowly, and got out to the largest lead in the game, 65 to 55, after 12 ends. Peter kept a narrow lead until end 19 where Gary slipped into the lead, 96 to 94. The final end was just as exciting as the rest of the game with both players having the winning shots until the last couple of bowls. Peter picked up shot bowl to reach 98 but Gary had second and third shot to take him to 101 and the match. What a great game and well done to both of you.
