Hill Top Blue defeated minor premiers Seymour to take out division three of Goulburn Valley Tuesday pennant bowls at Euroa on Tuesday last week.
The end of the pennant season saw Hill Top Blue play top-of-the-ladder club Seymour for the second time in the final series, coming away with a convincing win.
All rinks started off slowly, but by lunch time we were in the lead by a solitary game.
Evol Cronyn’s rink was 10-all after 13 ends. They hung in and fought all the way to be one down after 24 ends, but got the vital one shot on the last end to draw 22-all.
Joyce Tavener’s team started slowly, but had caught up after 13 ends to be two up, 12-10. They won eight of the last 12 ends to win 24-15.
Glenda Smith’s team also started slowly. After 13 ends, they had nearly caught up and were 9-11. After that point they went on a scoring spree, winning nine of the final ends to finish with a great score, 35-19.
We are all proud to be able to bring the division three premiership back to Hill Top.
Thanks to the executive, the selectors and supporters for their encouragement.
To the players, well done. Everyone played to the best of their ability and are proudly wearing their premiership medals.
