Weekly Report March 01

Pennant Finals

Tuesday, February 25th … Midweek Preliminary Final

YMGCR V Wodonga at Corowa Civic.

Talk about pressure! Our Midweek A1 had a big day at the office against Wodonga. It was up and down all the way, and either side could have gone on to the Grand Final.

So with 2 rinks completed it was still anyone’s game. The pressure was on, and Anne Miles team certainly rose to the occasion. On the 24th end Anne pulled off an amazing save by killing the end.

The replay of the end saw her save the end again by taking the jack to the ditch, and following it into the sand for one shot. What a champion!

The last end was tense and the spectators sat quietly, enthralled by what was happening.

We ended up one shot short. BUT … Hold your heads high A1. You did us proud.

Saturday, February 29th … Weekend Grand Final

YMGCR B2 V Chiltern at Corowa Civic.

WHAT A WIN! The shield is ours.

Well done to the guys and gals from B2. A great performance from a team who has been steady and on task for the whole season. Thoroughly deserved.

From the outset the scoreboard was in our favour, and as the game moved on our lead slowly continued to build. At the 75th end the score was YMGCR 84 defeating Chiltern 53.

Rink scores … M Whitehead 14/24, J Mc Gough 37/13, I Morffew.33/16

In her acceptance speech, Team Manager Lyn Mc Gough acknowledged hospitalised team member Marie Morffew, and wished her a speedy recovery.
