Bruny vs. Glenorchy Rodman (Away)

Glenorchy Rodman defeated Bruny 12 - 2 (78 to 71 shots)


This was the first game of the second round of matches in Division 2. When we played them at Bruny in the first game of the season we had a resounding 14 - 0 win by 23 shots.

Things were looking great for a repeat of that result at Rodman with only 3 ends to go. Bruny was ahead on all rinks then crashed at the final barrier. Bruny's rinks skipped by Leigh Higgins and Chris Martyn both conceded 4 shots at the very last end to lose their games by one shot. Neil Jones's rink was holding 4 shots and looking at a win when his opposing skip Greg Collins carted the kitty for 5 shots......a 9 shot turnaround and a rink loss to Neil by 6 shots. Martin Hampson's rink held on to win by 1 shot to be Bruny's only winning rink and also promoted Martin to the prestigious position of being the leading Skip in Division 2.

It was an education to the Bruny bowlers to play on a rink that sped up during the game resulting in not only having to bowl wider but also having to contend with the gusty wind.
