Good home win for Pennants’ Seven’s as competition ends

Bowls News By Maxine Elsom

It was a win at home and a loss away for Gilgandra Bowling Club’s two Pennants sides last week.

On Wednesday of last week however, 14 bowlers enjoyed a social game, with the winners being Bob Rogers and Dylan Marchant who defeated Mike Newstead and Bruce Parker by 18–10. Dave Jones, Larry Clarke, and Blake Cook also had a win against Mal Altmann, Phil Godber, and Gil Riley by 17–13. Christine Howchin also had the bragging rights in her family, when she teamed-up with Barry Johnson to defeat her husband Rod, and her daughter, Tracey, by 16–13. O

n the Pennants scene, the Sevens had a good win at home against Binnaway 72–47. Bob Rogers, Larry Clark, Bruce Parker, and Bob Dicks, had a 23-all draw in their match. Meanwhile, Dave Jones, Matt Thompson, Norm Lummis, and Danial Riley won by 23–16. In the third game, Leroy Gregory, Mouse Holland, Tommy Ledger, and Gil Riley, had a comfortable win 26–8. Gil was the bowler of the day with Leroy also in very good form.

Appreciation also to the “super-subs” on the day, Bob Rogers, Norm and Mouse, as well as our scorer, Ted Stewart. Unfortunately for the Pennants team, this year has now come to an end for the Sevens as Mudgee came first in this section, but well done to all the players who participated, anyway. The Fives were, in contrast, defeated at Baradine 58–56, two games to one.

Mal Altmann, Rambo Young, Brent McKenzie, and Garry Raines, were the only winning team on the day by 25–13. Rod Howchin, Shaun Marchant, Mick Harvey, and Dylan Marchant lost by 21–17 with Jo Raines, Barry Johnson, Blake Cook, and Noel Raines, defeated by 25–14. Congratulations to the Fives, however who, even after this close loss, will still move onto the next stage.

Having won the Zone Four, Grade Five, Section One Division, their opponents are to be advised, With both Gil and Coona finishing with 21 points, the for-and-against was in our favour by a very narrow margin of only shots over the six rounds. Well done to the “Fivers”!

The first round of the Fours Championships will also commence this weekend. Bob Dicks, Barry Johnson, Maxine Elsom, and Phil Godber, will be turningup on Saturday to play Mick Harvey, Mal Altmann, Bruce Parker, and Stacey Reynolds. All other teams are encouraged to try and play their games either on Saturday or Sunday this weekend, so as to keep the championships moving along. This is because, there are a lot of upcoming championship matches to get through and, hopefully, they will all be completed before the end of the year this time!
