Moama prevailed by a slender two-shot margin against ladder-leaders City of Echuca to claim the division one midweek pennant premiership on Friday.
Despite winning just one of three rinks at Deniliquin RSL, a commanding nine-shot win to the Beryl Eddy-led rink helped secure Moama’s (62-60) victory.
Eddy and teammates Giselle Maynard, Margot Brennan and Lyn Rogan proved too strong for City of Echuca’s Veronica Kelly (skipper), Pat Schram, Lyn Snell and Norma Hall, prevailing 23 shots to 14.
The win proved to be a welcomed result after fellow skippers Sandra Connolly (22-26) and Marilyn Stephenson (17-20) went down in their respective matches.
‘‘We’re extremely happy with the result,’’ Stephenson said.
‘‘Beryl’s (Eddy) performance has been so cool, calm and collected all season, she just goes about her business and everyone respects her so much.
‘‘Her rink performed so well.’’
With Stephenson’s rink the final match to wind up, everyone’s attention quickly switched to the overall leaderboard, of which Stephenson used to shape her side’s game plan.
‘‘We ultimately planned around that,’’ she said.
‘‘We knew were in front on the leaderboard, so we then focused on not giving away too many shots in our match.
‘‘It was such an excellent final, all grand finals should go down to the last bowl.
‘‘We just happened to come out on the good side.’’
