Weekly Report November 05


Mid – Week Pennant.

YMGCR’s A1 side were hosted by Wodonga and the home team were in no mood to play the gracious host and made short work of YMGCR. The scores were: Wodonga 70 shots and 14 points to YMGCR 37 shots and 0 points. Ian Febey (L), Shirley Hummel (2), Gary Presnell (3) and Ray Irvine (S) tested their opponents all day but went down narrowly 19 shots to Wodonga’s 21 shots.

It was a reversal of roles in the A2’s where YMGCR hosted Wodonga at the Golf Club, but the scoreboard result was similar to that of YMGCR’s top side. The A2’s went down 41 shots 0 points to Wodonga 62 shots and 14 points. An honourable mention has to go to the rink of Cecilia Milne (L), Vicki Withers (2), Gary Hart (3) and Allan Goudge (S), who kept their opponents’ minds on the job all game but went down narrowly 15 shots to Wodonga’s 17 shots.

YMGCR’s A3 side played host to Yackandandah and the visitors won narrowly, Yackandandah 65 shots and 12 points to YMGCR 63 shots and 2 points. Winning in fine style for YMGCR were Jill Lamson (L), Gavin Borwick (2), Tony Durkin (3) and Ron Lamson (S), who put their opponents to the sword 31 shots to 16 shots. This was a terrific rink win sadly it wasn’t enough to cover the two other YMGCR rinks.


Wednesday Social Bowls.

The format for the day was 2 games of 3 bowl pairs, with all games being played on the east green.
