Bruny vs. Taroona (Home)

Bruny defeated Taroona 10 - 4 (86 to 85 shots)


It was a beautiful sunny day for playing bowls. It was a big change from the cold blustery days of many of the previous weekly games. What a game it turned out to be with the attention held of all present until the NOT playing of the last bowl of a losing game gave Bruny a one shot win for the day. It is many seasons since Bruny has been involved in such a tight finish.

The best performing Four of the day was once again the Four of Chris with his team of Scott, Graeme and Noel. Their winning margin of 14 shots provided a buffer for the losing teams. Traci, Ashley, Leigh and Martin fought out a very tight game against our past player Dominic Lacy and his team to win by one shot. High level mathematical calculations were carried out by Gary Baker to come to the decision not to play his last bowl as the score he held gave us an overall one shot win for the day.

Even though we won we still dropped back from fourth to fifth on the ladder due to the 14 point win of Howrah against Orford which allowed them to pass us.
