Junior Interclub Final Result
A great night for Mairangi Bay last night with the Blue team winning the round robin final played under lights at Sunnybrae Bowling Club. (Team photo attached)
Virtually only needing one win the Blue team won two out of three on the night to claim top spot (see attached points chart).
With both Colleen Rice and Theresa Rogers missing on the night due to other bowls commitments Garth Partridge and Trish Hardy stepped up to the plate and won a closely fought game against our White team 15-13. The triples team of Alan Daniels, Mike Wilkinson and Phil Chisholm had a 12- 7 win over Orewa. In the Singles, Neil Buckner lost to Birkenhead.
On top of that our White team in the triples beat Birkenhead to stop them winning three games on the night.
Well done Mairangi Bay for getting two teams in the finals and Congratulations to the Blue Team.
A big thank you to Tony Popplewell, Leon
