Pennant season wrap-up

26 Mar

Sorell Bowls Club has once again achieved another successful season with two teams playing off in grand finals.  Divisions 4 and Division 7 played at St John’s Park on a very fast green – Div 4 won by 11 shots over Howrah after first beating them in the second semi-final by just one shot.  Div 7 struggled to stay with cygnet, falling away in the last few ends, but they should be proud of the season they had.

The Premier Division team had some success and were competitive in many games during the season but didn’t quite have the depth of players to stay in that division; but we will be all the better for the experience gained.

Both Ladies pennant teams finished just out of finals contention but with further improvement can achieve finals next season.

Div 4 went on to play off in the state titles at Swansea – losing to St Mary’s on the Saturday by a large margin on a heavy green but adjusting on Sunday to defeat Bridport.  All members who played acquitted themselves well and were a credit to the club.  Many thanks to Shirley Hay and Ross Brokate who acted as match managers for the club in these games.
