Sunday February 21
A very different week thanks to our political leaders. Saturday Pennant was off as was Mid Week. Div 2 in the Mid week needed a good win to book themselves a place in the finals. As it stands they are in second place, but as we all know things can change very quickly. There was a group of bowlers that got a competition going on Thursday and even at short notice we were able to still get a good number of bowlers for a social game with the weather being hot. There was only one team that were two game winners on the day being Wendy Donohue, Scott Morison and Frank Tagell. They had a score of two wins and 32 points to record a good win.
Saturday Pennant finished this week with Div 1 hosting Leongatha Green at home. All three teams had good wins to finish the year on a high. A bit of bad luck in one match during the season didn’t help the end result. Final scores Wonthaggi 71 Leongatha Green 53. Div 2 went to the lovely town of Fish Creek to do battle on a day where the wind was not blowing. Two teams had good matches with the other team having a battle. Final scores Wonthaggi 59 Fish Creek 77. Div 3 were at home to Meeniyan and were hoping to finish the year on a high, but Meeniyan were hoping to finish in the finals and proved too strong on the day. The final scores were Wonthaggi 58 Meeniyan 78. Div 4 travelled to Meeniyan also hoping to finish the year on a high, but Meeniyan were intent on winning their last game on their home green. The final scores were Wonthaggi 69 Meeniyan 84.
Sunday was a busy day at the club as the South Gippsland Bowls Division were playing the Strzelecki Region to decide the Champion of Champions to play at Bendigo later in the year. Wonthaggi had a team in the mens fours consisting of Trevor Teer, Guilio Marcolongo, Bryan Donohue and Rob Aitken. The good news is they won their match. with a score of 18 – 12 after 18 ends. Jan Jeeves playing in the novice singles won her match 15 – 9 which is a great result.
Next Saturday the club will be hosting the Pennant finals as well as on Sunday we will have the Jimmy Smith Triples Day which is a big event to round off the weekend.
Wednesday social bowls are on this week with sheets up on the board.
Friday coaching is on at 10 00 am. On Friday night we have a trivia night and the good news is that all the tables are sold which is a good result for the club.
Have a good week and good bowling,
Jan Jeeves (Strzelecki Ladies Novice Champion) is congratulated by Frank Seaton
