Wednesday winners, the day had to be decided by percentage - G. Barry, M. Hopkins, E. Hollingsworth won the day with 63 per cent, runners up - P. Bates and R. Crisfield on 59 per cent.
Both these teams played some very good bowls, well done.
The greens were filled on Sunday with the start of the Ovens and Murray mixed pairs event.
This event will continue over a couple of weeks and results will be advised at a later date.
Midweek pennant resumes this week and the weekend pennant results are as follows.
Weekend Pennant
First round of the weekend pennant after the Christmas break proved rather disastrous for Civic with the club scoring only one winning side.
The A1’s, A3’s and B3’s all lost comprehensively, the only shining glory being the B2’s who scored a good win over St James.
The A1’s hosted YMGCR and were no match for the visitors losing 66/101 with all 4 rinks down.
Col Hendren’s rink seemingly had the game under control after 20 ends only to lose 9 shots on the last 5 consecutive ends to go down 20/25.
Max Scanlon got off to a bad start but came back strongly after the tea break to eventually go down 19/25.
Tom Webb’s rink trailed all day to lose 12/24 and Dawn Hayman’s rink also found the going very tough right from the outset and they lowered their colours 15/27.
A3’s travelled to Bright by bus as two teams (also B3’s) were competing there.
They found the greens very heavy and tricky.
The opposition handled them much better and Civic could not muster a win from the competing 7 rinks.
Ad’s lost 75/103; Mark Mills’ rink had a very tight tussle, being level on five occasions, but dropping 10 shots on 4 consecutive ends mid game made their task of winning difficult - they lost 18/22.
Col McIntosh struck a very strong rink and were down 3/20 at one stage but rallied after the break to lose by only 6 shots, 21/27.
Lynton Ford’s boys were level after the 19th end but faded to go down 17/25.
Bill Docherty was right in it up until the 13th end but thereafter troubled the scorer only on 3 occasions to go down 19/29.
B2’s at home played St James and won convincingly 84/58 with 2 rinks up.
Steve Rodway together with B. Pulling, M. Lewis and M. Watson had a big win 34/16 allowing their opposition only 1 end in the last 12 ends.
Likewise Peter King’s rink had a strong win 31/19 whilst Bob Kilpatrick had a keen tussle going down 19/23 in the end.
B3’s also at Bright could not handle the conditions with Len Wilson losing 23/31, Pam Tobias down 16/38 and Frank Abbs rink was unlucky to lose 19/21 after being in front on 23rd end.
Forthcoming events - Club triples start Sunday, February 4, Business House Fours start Wednesday, February 14 and weekend pennant finals start on Saturday, February 17.
Watch notice board for details.
