Mixed Pairs Championship a Tight Contest
Last Sunday, 13 October, was a very busy day for the club.
Following the successful “Celebrate Diversity” event, the Men’s Match Committee ran the finals of the Mixed Pairs Championships.
Play got underway at just after 2pm, in front of a strong spectator crowd who were looking forward to watching strong competition between the Major and Plate teams.
In the Plate, Gloria McDonald and Finn O’Shea took on Peter and Sue Haley.
It was an excellent match to watch, with both teams putting down strong bowls.
In a close finish 17 to 14, the Haleys took out the Mixed Pairs Plate.
In the Major, there was also an excellent tussle between Maurice Crabb and Jayne Archibald against Marianne Cameron and Dave Lister.
Once again after a strong match between the two teams, that kept the spectators on their toes, Maurice and Jayne took out the Major 19 to 15.
Congratulations to Maurice and Jayne and to Peter and Sue.
Also congratulations to the Men’s Match Committee for a well run event.
Sincere thanks to Hazel McGinty of Ray White, McGinty & Associates for sponsoring the event.
