Metro Pennant Round 8 has come and gone, it was a hard day at the office for club.
Our top side hosted MCC, coming off two good wins, things were looking up and the team looked to continue the consistent form it was starting to show. However the team was consistent though the day, but just could not get over the line.
Auburn(1) 0-63 defeated by MCC(2) 18-80
J. Greenshields 12-20, N. Waite 18-19, M. Diorietes 18-21, D. Mitchell 15-20.
This week see’s the first double header in Metro Pennant, Saturday we are away at Blackburn, and Sunday we are away at Mooroolbark
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.
Auburn(2) 3-67 defeated by Donvale(3) 15-75
R. Scerri 19-19, R. Verzaci 16-24, S. Bartel 17-13, N. Browne 15-19
This week for the double header we are away at Greythorn and away to North Balwyn. On Sunday North Balwyn will be looking for a touch of revenge after the 1st game of the year.
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.
