Twenty teams took to the Mathoura bowling greens for the annual Millewa two-bowl triplesJuly 16, 2014 3:29am
Mathoura Bowling Club’s Millewa two-bowl triples tournament on the weekend, saw 20 teams entered.
On Saturday, bowlers played three games of 16 ends and at the end of play four teams had won three games.
Many teams had two games, so there were many teams in contention.
Sunday was a crisp and frosty morning, but all teams were early and play started on time.
After the two games were completed, one team had won five games, with one team having four wins and a draw.
A play-off was needed to determine third, with four four-game winners.
The Mooroopna team of Brad Orr, Glen Thatcher and Jeff Anselmi were the winners, head of the Lalor team of Andrew Van der Horst, Ian Berry and Donny Passes. Third was the Bacchus Marsh team.
Winners of the highest margin prizes on the last four games were N Stephenson +18, N Dunbar +15, S Lucas +28 and T Toohey +6.
