THE District Pennants are upon us with the Tuross teams playing the first round at home. Tuross has only two sides this year - 4 and 6 grade sides. Saturday’s games were Tuross 4 playing Tomakin’s teams and the 6 playing Braidwood. Initially it appeared the matches would be called off due to rain, but that was not to be and all the teams hit the ground running.
Our country cousins from Braidwood were enjoying their games but were having difficulties on the green. The three matches played in level 6 saw Tuross win 2 and Braidwood 1.
The two Tuross skippers R Cox and R Richardson won their games 26 to 14 and 20 to 15, with I Wratten losing to Braidwood skipper J Bunn 23 to 7. This resulted in Tuross winning five out of the six points, a good start for the session.
The players from Tomakin were not only having a good time on the green, but off the green as well. As it was the reverse this time, for Tuross, with them losing 5 points to 1, with only Tuross’s J Monks winning his game 16 to 13. Tomakin’s skippers K Franklin winning 23 to 12 and L Vincent coming home 19 to 14.
A disappointing start but it’s early days.
All competitions must come to an end and it was no different for the District Senior Pairs which was played at Tuross Head on Sunday.
The final had Dalmeny playing Malua Bay, for the opportunity to move to the next level. It was a miserable day to be bowling with overcast skies and a strong cold winds blowing.
The two teams facing off against one other were Pio Leverale and Keith Austen from Malua Bay playing Peter Pisanos and Ray Dunbar from Dalmeny. Whoever, mastered the conditions mastered the game, which the team from Dalmeny did, coming home winners 25 to 17. Congratulations fellas and we all wish you good luck at the state level.
