Bruny vs. Orford (Away)

Orford defeated Bruny 10 - 4 (97 to 75 shots)


Bruny's Division 2 team departed Bruny on Saturday morning in heavy rain and strong gusty winds.

The team's arrival in Orford saw the departure of rain but strong gusty winds continued throughout the game. Havoc was created with many bowls when the winds deviated them from their original path often blowing them out of bounds much to the chagrin of the many players involved.

The wind favoured neither side and close games ensued on three of the rinks. Orford's rink skipped by Ian 'Poss' Brazendale demoralised Bruny's rink skipped by Leigh Higgins with a 39 - 14 win after the two teams were 14 - 14 at the halftime break. Superb draw shots going with the winby Orford's Wayne Oates were the telling factor.

Bruny's best performing rink of John Kobylec, Barry Bell, Peter Wheeler and Chris Martyn won with a margin of 5 shots.
