Mens Bowling Report for the 17/09/2016

Posted on 18th September, 2016

Last weekend 250 bowlers from all corners of the state arrive for the commencement of the 2016 Inter-Zone Sides Championship at Forster and Tuncurry Beach Bowling Clubs.

Many spectators were being treated to excellent bowls from all teams. After three rounds of sectional play the semi-finalists had been decided. At Forster Zone 12 (Sydney Sth West) and Zone 6 (Hunter) were the successful teams, and at Tuncurry Beach Zone 16 (Illawarra) and Zone 13 (Sydney Central & South) were also winners.

The final was played at Forster on Monday morning on a 15 second green in absolutely perfect conditions. In the initial stages the scores were extremely close with barely a shot in it, but after the half way mark the extremely strong Zone 12 team put the pressure on and dominated the game. Zone 13 did make a small come-back to get the margin back to 10 shots, but that was as close as they could get. The final score being Zone 12 (77) defeating  Zone 13 (59).

This Saturday we have the Zone 11 Rookies Pairs qualifying with our players being Craig Small pairing with Giles Ryan and Mark Anderson with Brain Harris. Good Luck.
