Midweek pennant had our last home and away game for the year with YMGCR A1’s team played Wodonga at Wodonga, but with the opposition holding a 1 shot lead with one end to play.
It came down to the very last bowl of the game and in the hands of our champ Anne Miles, with 1 shot down on the head.
Our girl went for a drive to take the jack into the ditch to win the game but just missing, giving the win to Wodonga.
YMGCR1 2/64 to Wodonga 12/66, Anne Miles winning 24/17, Ray Irvine losing 24/27 and Laureen Smith going down 16/22.
They still finished second and with a couple of good inclusions, they will face off against Benalla at Corowa Civic (who they beat last week).
The YMGCR2’s side played Corowa Civic and losing on the last end, 2/75 and Civic 12/76.
Rob Hummel’s rink had a good win 27/18, Bob Adams lost 25/30 and Kerry Kinnane lost 23/28, this now just puts them out of the final, finishing fifth.
Well done to the team on their efforts throughout the year.
YMGCR A3’s played Moyhu away, the top of the table team going down 2/69 to 12/77.
Siggi Rempel had a good win 32/23, Bob Liddell finally lost a game 17/29 and Les Balfour lost 20/25, the side will now play Wodonga at Corowa Civic.
The B1’s had yet another tough road trip, this time to second placed Rutherglen, this time the side didn’t get a win, but lost 2/49 to 12/90.
Best rink for the day was Edna James who won 23/21, with Carolyn Boston losing 12/31 and Robyn Balfour going down 14/38.
Well done on the year, you played with a lot of enthusiasm and never had any negative talk.
We had the finals of the YMGCR Charity Bowls Promotion Night, winners off Division 1 were Purtles, Division 2 Wunnuni Wankers 1, Division 3 Rotary and Division 4 was Rangy Bankers.
Best game winners were week 1 Don’s Party, week 2 Yarrawonga SES, week 3 2RC and week 4 Kanga. We would like to thank the club for the $1200 towards all the different charities, which were Friends In Common, Yarrawonga Wildlife Shelter, Yarrawonga Health, Legacy, Yarrawonga SES and PALS.
If you are interested in a game be there before Tuesday at 6.45pm.
With two teams already in the Grand Final all eyes moved over to our A4’s, unfortunately our team came up against a determine Wodonga outfit.
Going in only 12 shots behind at the tea break, the heavens opened up with thunder and lighting, with a good start after the break they cut their lead to six.
But that was as close as they got and Wodonga won 16/106 to YMGCR 2/79, Siggi Rempel was the only winning rink 27/21, Tony Durkin lost 30/26, Les Balfour lost 15/32 and Bob Evans lost 17/27.
It was great to see so many club mates supporting them, well done to all the players for all their hard work they have put in over the season.
Next week the A3’s will play Bright for the third game in a row in the GF and the B2’s will play Mansfield in the GF also for the third game in a row, so far we have prevailed but we all know the big game is a very different ball game.
So come along to give our club mates as much support you can, with a bit of luck they might be at the same venue.
On a sad note YMGCR Bowls Club would like to send our condolences to our friends Greg, Judy and Keith Green for the loss of Greg’s mum Bonnie.
Club Mulwala Outdoor Bowls
Another week in paradise, another great week for bowls.
A2 were at home to Benalla where the visitors proved just too strong on the day, however we are very pleased our team maintained their spot in the four, a credit to all players who represented our club in this grade throughout the season.
A2 will now travel to Wangaratta next Tuesday to meet St James in an elimination final, we wish them well.
B1 travelled to Swanpool where they encountered the most difficult green they have played on this season.
The home team proved they could manage the conditions much better than we could and therefore came away with a very strong win.
Well done to all members who represented our club in this grade through the season.
There were a number who played pennant for the first time, the improvement over the season was outstanding, we look to next season with great expectations.
