Pennant Game at Mooroolbark
Pennant Game at Mooroolbark

Over the weekend we had our first double header round, while it was not received well across Melbourne Metro Pennant, it was a good opportunity to do something different.  What we get in return is the Australia Day Long weekend off from Bowls. That is something we can all look forward to.

Sunday Pennant Round 10 Results

There has been much commentary on the double header round, all clubs would have found that people were not available, we had plenty of time to prepare.  Given that we had to play this so we could have the Australia Day long weekend off, it is a fair compromise.

J. Greenshields 12-20, N. Waite 18-19, M. Diorietes 18-21, D. Mitchell 15-20.

4th Division

Our 2nd side is looking hard for a win after starting the season well, they need some consistency in the game to get a good result on the board.  That consistency was coming out on Saturday with one rink up a draw, and two rinks down by less than 10 on a low scoring game.  Over all it was close all day the team falling just short.

6-a-Side

Our two six aside teams have a number of new bowlers bowling with some experienced bowlers, while the results don’t show wins we are seeing the improvements in our new bowlers.  The mentoring they get now with the experience in the older players on this team will help them develop in to great bowlers down the line.
