SATURDAY 24/10/20 – AWAY AT OSBORNE PARK
After the abrupt end to the 2019 – 2020 season due to Covid-19, it was great to be back out playing pennants again in the 2020 – 2021 season.
It was a very bold decision for us to have a go at 4th Division this season (i.e. four rinks instead of three), but a necessary one. From my point of view as the recycled Men’s Captain and Club Selector, we need to try to progress our numbers for several reasons, not just tread water. We need ‘home grown’ committed players not short term, hired guns with little loyalty.
Let’s have some fun and see how we go.
It was an early start time to cater for the AFL Grand Final that saw us kick off at 12.15pm on a beautiful day at Osborne Park.
A special occasion for us was that a new bowler and member, Mick Canci, was making his pennant debut. Congratulations and welcome Mick.
The Litchfield Rink of Gavin Cann, Thera Howat, Peter Imms and Christopher: came from behind to win 20 – 17.
The White Rink of Des Lynch, Matthew McPhee, Dave Leeson & Ian: were very competitive but lost 17 – 18.
The Marsland Rink of Neil Howat, Jack Wara, Dot Leeson and Brian: dominated all afternoon to win 30 – 12.
The Downey Rink of Kate Hiatt, Mick Canti, Peter Hiatt and Martin: battled hard but capitulated 19 – 25.
WINNING POINTS: 6 – 2.
SHOTS SCORE: 86 – 72.
Congratulations to us as a team and congratulations to the Marsland rink for winning the pots.
