It was a case of three-in-a-row for Barooga Sports Club when they took out their third division one pennant grand final in three years.March 19, 2014 4:01am
On Saturday the Murray Bowls division one bowls final was played on the fast running greens at Strathmerton between Numurkah Golf and Barooga Sports.
As Barooga had been through the season undefeated but had been defeated by Numurkah Golf in the second semi-final, the many spectators in attendance were expecting a closely fought match.
And they would not be disappointed.
Initially scores were very close before Barooga had Ray Nye’s, Peter Russell’s and Gary Downie’s rinks exerting their authority to take a slight overall edge, although Brett Wright’s rink was trailing Geoff Sutcliff’s.
Going to afternoon tea with a six-shot advantage, Barooga players knew they would be in for a strong effort from Numurkah Golf and that they would need to concentrate and bowl at their best if the pennant was to be theirs.
Barooga was able to prevail over the latter part of the match to draw away from Numurkah Golf to win its third consecutive division one pennant.
Results: Gary Downie (Barooga Sports) d Ron Bartley (Numurkah Golf) 28-13; Brett Wright (BS) lost to Geoff Sutcliffe (NG) 23-30; Peter Russell (BS) d Russell Smith (NG) 26-20; and Ray Nye (BS) d Andrew Henderson (NG) 33-20.
Final scores: Barooga Sports 110 and Numurkah Golf 83.
