BOWLS

Kingscote, Sunday October 22.

President Maureen welcomed 14 teams for the Century 21 Mixed Pairs Bowls Tournament comprising two games of 2222 and 242.

The weather was perfect for bowling and even an intrepid group of spectators commented they had not played a bad bowl all day, despite not having left the bank.  

Midway during the games, afternoon tea was enjoyed and then it was back to the green for the second, all important game.  

Several teams were lucky enough to have won their first game, and there was some talk that some friendly rivalry had erupted and some teams were also playing to decide who was buying the pizza and drinks for tea after the match.

Four teams ultimately managed to win two games with the eventual winners being Steve and Judy Bell, from John Berden and Molly Turner.

A raffle with prizes donated by some of the members was drawn then thanks was extended to Judy and Linda for organising the day.  

Darryl Hammat made it to the shops on time, but only just! 

A big thank you to the local sponsor, Century 21 Real Estate.

Western Districts v Parndana

Parndana was too good for the Western District Saints at Gosse on the weekend, on the back of Sam Horjus innings of 73.  

A stiff southerly provided a bit of hoop for the bowlers from the northern end.

However, Horjus was good enough to capitalise on a few dropped catches to take advantage of any loose balls on offer later in his innings.  

It was good to see a few players returning for the Saints, including C Hammat, E Whale and P Johnson.

Also a few juniors made their debut for the side, some performing well.  

D Nott displayed some good fielding technique not seen since Daryl Hammat fielded in the slips in the 1980s. 

R Boyle was the best of the bowlers with 3/17 off three overs.

Parndana scored a solid 155 from their 20 overs.

The Saints got off to a steady start with the bat but no-one was able to go on with their start.

K Hammat was the best for the Saints with 18.  

S Cooper took some important wickets for Parndana while M Kelly cleaned up the tail with 4/3 off two overs as the Saints fell well short of the mark.
