Trimuph and heartbreak in bowls

How did Seymour, VRI, Avenel and Nagambie do in finals action on Saturday?

March 5, 2014 4:11am

Jenny Kreemers eyes up the end for Seymour against Seymour VRI.



GV midweek pennant

Division two played at Euroa in the qualifying final against Avenel. This was a great game for Seymour, winning all three rinks in style on a magnificent green running at 16.75, taking it out 16-87 to 0-53.

Division three also played at Euroa in the qualifying final against Violet Town, but the boot was on the other foot, being well beaten on every rink.

Seymour fronted up on Thursday at Euroa to play Shepparton Park in the preliminary final. A great result this time: Seymour 12-81 to Shepp Park 4-70. Seymour showed guts and determination after being down 34-40 at the lunch break, coming home strongly to win.

CBD midweek pennant

Seymour Blue played Kilmore at Broadford in the preliminary final. This game was a hard-fought affair with Seymour losing to a strong Kilmore side 75-70.

GV Saturday pennant

GV5 travelled to Shepparton Park to play in the elimination final against Nagambie, winning 14-82 to 2-74. A great effort and good luck for the preliminary final on Saturday against Shepparton RSL1 to be played at Murchison. It is to be hoped that some members will travel to provide support for this team.

CBD Saturday pennant grand finals

Although the ‘‘home and away’’ part of the pennant season has finished for the midweek competition and most of Saturday competition, our division six side in Saturday pennant played its penultimate match, resulting in a one-shot win over East Shepparton. This Saturday will see the last match of the season leaving only the final to be played on March 15.

In midweek pennant our division two side had an eventful week losing to Seymour on Tuesday then making full use of its second chance on Thursday against East Shepparton. Therefore the final yesterday saw Avenel and Seymour face off once again at Tatura.

Coming Up: Midweek 100 up next round at 10am on March 13 followed by lunch/get together at 12.30pm, BYO lunch. Also social bowls for those not playing 100 up. March 16 is the GV Charity Social Bowls day. As always please check the notice board and the club syllabus for upcoming competitions and events.


Division two led for 99 ends and 14 bowls before Shepparton Park skipper Peter Stewart put down his last bowl trailing on the overall scores card. It was his ordinary shot that robbed the locals of their first appearance in division two grand final.

But all is not lost yet, Nagambie play Shepparton Golf in the preliminary final on Saturday and I believe they can topple Golf and have another crack at Shepparton Park in the grand final.

Young bowler Jack Spencer was in fine form as were the Nichols brothers Peter and Daniel.

Division five are to be congratulated on their effort, being the underdogs, and only suffered an eight-shot defeat by Seymour, in what was a close and sometimes rowdy encounter — just ask Max who should have received an award for tolerance.

Manager Max would like to thank bowlers in division five for sticking together and having the chance to play in the elimination final. Also thanks to Vicki Reidy who scored for us.

Best of luck to division two this week.

It was good to see five teams travel to the Heathcote, although apart from having a good day no winners were reported.
