Mixed Championship Fours a Battle of the Onesies!
Over the past two weekends, 56 players competed in the Mixed Championship Fours.
Fine weather greeted all players on both days with temps in the high 20s.
Opening games were played on C & D green with the semis and finals on B green.
There were great games played right throughout the competition, but nothing could match the major final.
Brett Holland, Ian Farley, Jane Archibald & Sue Kershaw took on Nigel Tulett, Linda Bryant, Rob Wiringi & Sue MacKay in a nail-biter.
Brett’s team opened the score with a 1 on the first two ends. Nigel’s team answered with four 1s on the next four ends.
With both sides scoring ones, they were 6 all on the 12th end.
Brett’s team were leading 8 to 6 on the 14th end. Nigel’s team took 2pts – the highest score of the game to again be equal 8pts each on the 15th end.
The fight continued with Brett’s team held to 1pt on the next 3 ends to take the honours 11pts to 8pts.
A remarkable game and a well deserved congrats to both teams.
In the tussle for the bronze, Rick Pountney, Kym Anderson, Denise Anderson & Cathy Hopewell defeated Brian Keighley, Ron McKay, Cheryl Keighley & Ros Little.
The spectators were treated to great bowls on both rinks.
