BHAS Ladies' Lawn Bowls January 7

BHAS Ladies' Lawn Bowls

We had a great start to the New Year, with our three teams having wins.

Bullock Blue won against Laura Red 44 shots to 24 shots. June Osborne's rink with Melinda Pearce, Marie Williams and Lorraine May won against Di Phillips' rink 21 shots to 11 shots.

They won more ends than Laura and had some handy big scores on a couple of ends. Maxine Northcott's rink with Wilma Hendry, Virginia Mahoney and Kerrie Rawlins won against Gay Blake's rink 23 shots to 13 shots.

The first half of the game was very even with some lead changes. However, Maxine's rink settled into the game and won most of the remaining ends.

Bullock Gold won against Pirie 44 shots to 29 shots. Pamela Stevens' rink with Joylene Todd, Nancy Warne and Ros Everett won against Rosie Arnold's rink 23 shots to 14 shots.

Pamela's rink dominated with end wins and the score margin would have been even more, but for Rosie's rink picking up a couple of good multiple scores on a couple of ends. Di Watson's rink with Coral Partridge, Shirley Bennett and Lina Amato won against Helen Blieschke's rink 21 shots to 15 shots.

Di's ladies were very strong in the first three quarters of the game and had a commanding lead. However, Helen's rink came home strongly winning the last five ends, and narrowed the margin. The good early lead was enough to keep BHAS in front.

Bookmakers' Purple won against Pt. Germein 52 shots to 32 shots. Marian Sandow's rink with Rose Hearn, Alan Manfield and Ray Brand won against Fay Kemp's rink 26 shots to 13 shots. Pt. Germein won the first three ends, but thereafter BHAS won most of the ends.

Cathy Searle's rink with Donna Coad, Fred Searle and Deb Ritchie won against Marilyn Woolford's rink 26 shots to 19 shots.

Saturday Pennants start a week later than the other competitions, so there are no games to report.
