This week, we welcome a guest reporter whilst your usual correspondent had the weekend off!  Much appreciated SBD!

Mens Pennant
Grade 1
City defeated Yass in their last home game ever – more on that later…. It was a fitting way to mark the end of an era with Robert Kelly and David Hill’s rinks recording good wins. (FS 59-53 (2-1).  Belconnen recorded a good away game win when they defeated Canberra 70-52.  Richard Lawson’s rink had a decisive 19 shot win however Belconnen’s two other skips Watts and McGready played a draw and a loss and were no doubt grateful for the efforts of Lawson’s rink. FS 52-70 (1-1-1)  Weston Creek snuck home with a 2 shot win defeating Norths 63-61.  All rinks were won or lost by no more than 2 shots. FS 61-63 (1-2). Queanbeyan put on a dominant display of good bowling when they defeated the home team Tuggeranong.  Rob Chesher’s and Scott Dagwell’s rinks secured a 12 and 10 shot advantage respectively whilst Sean Robertson’s rink also got a win on the board. FS 48-74 (0-3). QRSLM enjoyed the bye this week.
Grade 2
When it is a tight game you are after, Queanbeyan and Weston Creek did not fail to deliver this week.  In a nail biter Queanbeyan ultimately prevailed with rink wins to skips Garry Smith and Adrian Halloran.  Terry McInnes’ rink secured points for Weston Creek with a 27-16 win.  FS 63-64 (1-2). Norths defeated Belconnen in a methodical manner with rink wins to North’s Barnsley, Cottle and Schipp.   FS 65-44 (3-0).
Grade 3
QRSLM hosted Weston Creek but were unable to take advantage of the home ground knowledge with the Creeks Wilson, Stewart and Cullen skipping their rinks to victory. FS 44-67 (0-3).  Tuggeranong were dominant in their match against the gentleman for Yass, thanks to Brian’s Smith’s rinks outstanding performance in a 38-12 win.  The other rinks were much closer with Tuggeranong’s Budnick and Spaven led rinks also securing wins.  FS 83-44 (3-0).  Yowani met a determined Goulburn team when they travelled to the city with the Giant Ram.  Harry Price’s rink was on fire with a 39-8 win.  This result was well backed up with Guyer and Ensby’s rinks also securing strong wins. (FS 85-31 (3-0).
Grade 4
Weston Creek and Canberra could not be separated after 3 rinks with the match ending in a 57-57 (2-1) draw.  No more than 3 shots separated any rink with Mark Crosbie and Doug Wilson’s inching away with 16-15 and 23-21 victories respectively.  Tuggeranong had an away win defeating City in what was City’s last true home game. Vesperman, Hart and Beaumont all had rink wins which were all close but did the job.  FS 44-55 (0-3). Goulburn did it tough when they ventured to Queanbeyan with the home team securing 3 rink wins.  Most impressive was Darryl Peters rink which provided a boost to Queanbeyan’s for and against record with a 31 shot win.  This being said many a team have walked away victorious after securing 43 shots in a game and no doubt Goulburn would have learnt from their venture south to be a stronger team moving forward. FS 90-43 (3-0).
Grade 5
North Canberra had a good win at Yowani, however they did not have the match completely their own way.  The Totterdell and Kirk rinks secured wins whilst Phil Beggs rink secured the home team an 18-15 rink win.  FS 43-61 (1-2).  A tight game was played between QRSLM and Tuggeranong with 1 shot separating the 3 rinks and QRSLM taking the victory.  FS 53-52 (2-1).  Belconnen hosted Yass in another tight game with the visitors leaving with the win.  Mossop and Waters’ rinks had good victories but Belconnen didn’t go down without a fight as John Hammond skipped his rink to an emphatic 9 shot victory.  FS 55-59 (1-2).
Grade 6
Bungendore hosted Weston Creek and a surprise visit from the Bowls ACT EO clearly had a good effect on their play (ha ha)! Bungendore had a convincing 70-34 (3-0) win. City captured a win against visiting team Tuggeranong. Tuggeranong, in fact, won two rinks but the sterling effort of a 14 shot win by Ron Rook’s rink was enough to take the side points on offer. FS 56-53 (1-2).  Despite reaching a score of 50 for the match Goulburn were defeated by Queanbeyan at home.  Queanbeyan’s David Van Reesch’s rink proved the difference in the game with a 35-11 win.  FS 50-78 (0-1-2).
