A wrap-up of the Tatura Bowls Club results from last weekend.December 1, 2012 4:22am
Currently sitting fourth on the ladder, division two were at home to second-placed Rushworth and came away with an overall 27-shot win, 96-69, gaining 12 points to two with their three-rinks win.
Peter LeSueur played state bowler Jean Sprague, jumping away with an early lead, and was up 11 shots after just four ends.
LeSueur’s rink continued their domination and outscored their rivals to win by a huge 19 shots, 31-12.
Wally Sinclair found that Bruce Wootton was a hard man to toss, and it wasn’t until one end before the break that Sinclair had hit the lead, 13-11.
Out-pointing their rivals over the remaining ends allowed Sinclair to get home by eight shots, 26-18.
Barry Parker was even on 11 with Chris Williams on the 13th end and the intensely close game never had much in it for either team.
Parker went into the last end one shot down, but scored a two on this end to gain the valuable two points for the rink win. Final score for Parker 21-20.
John Attwood, in probably the tightest rink on the day, was level with Kevin Gilbert on four occasions and level on the penultimate end.
A shot by the visitors on the last had Attwood just fail in gaining a clean sweep for Tatura as the home side went down 18-19.
Continuing their good form with two rinks up and one down, division five got home by 11 shots, 72-61, in their away match against Shepparton Park.
Charlie Morritt conceded only eight ends against Bob Kleinitz and won by 11 shots, 27-16. Morritt came home with a withering run, winning seven of the last eight ends.
Bob Bordett, the hero of last week’s two-shot victory, played Ken Cuthbert and led all day.
Briefly challenged on the 22nd end with the score in Tatura’s favour by only two shots, Bordett’s team of Arthur Knee, George Tully and Peter Smith (who is in excellent form) scored on all remaining ends to set up the six-shot win, 27-21.
The margin of the six-shot win was reversed in the Freda Clement and Val Bourke match, with Clement losing 18-24.
