In a tremendous effort, Tatura’s John Attwood and Jason Carter made the final to be eliminated at the last hurdle.
All the same, a great effort to be runners-up — well done to the local boys.
Tatura division two played at home to top side Kyabram on Saturday, relishing the home game advantage and won three of the four rinks 110-85 and 16 points to two.
At the lunch break, Tatura was in front by 11 shots and by game’s end had extended the margin to 25 shots.
Ray Evans continued with his winning form against Peter O’Brien, up by 16 shots in a high-scoring match 37-21.
The scintillating form of leader Wally Sinclair has continued and he has put his rink into a winning position.
Peter LeSueur v Ray Harrison and by the break on the 11th end, the team had only conceded six shots and was already 12 in front.
LeSueur’s rink continued on their winning way and won by 16, 33-17.
John Attwood on the 12th end lunch break was down by one shot, 10-11, against John Hausler and by the 24th end was still down by one shot 21-22.
A three on the last to Attwood’s rink helped them get home by two points for a 24-22 win.
Peter Wallis’ rink was in all sorts of trouble against Phil Denham having scored only two singles by the break to Denham’s 14.
An improvement was made to the score line, but the damage had been done and Wallis lost by nine shots, 16-25.
Tatura’s division four travelled to Colbinabbin and were well beaten on the day.
