JUNIOR WOMEN’S TRIPLES

Saturday 17 October, a fine but coolish day, saw the start of the Club’s Junior events this season.  Four teams entered the Women’s Junior Triples competing in a round robin format.  In the first round the team of Bev Fleetwood, Colleen Wright and Brenda Gael were drawn against the team of Carol Barr, Helen Ongley and Linda Mirabelli.  This turned out to be the closest match of the day, with Bev’s team securing the win 16-13.  In the other first round match the team of Shelley McCabe, Robyn Shelwell and Lana Dowdell had a 22-12 win over the team of Noeline Sadgrove, Linda Sharpe and Annie Hsu.

The second round drew the two first round teams playing off, with Shelley’s team securing a 18-11 win.  In the other match Carol’s team ran out the winners 17-10. At the end of this round, one teams had had two wins, and two others had one each, so the third round matches would determine the winner.

Congratulations to the team of Shelley McCabe, Robyn Shelwell and Lana Dowdell who had another win to become the event winner.  Congratulations also to the runners-up: Bev Fleetwood, Colleen Wright and Brenda Gael.

AUCKLAND CENTRE RESULTS 8 AUGUST

On Saturday Howick had 3 teams in the Junior 1-5 year Fours and the men and women in the Champ of Champ Fours. ALL TEAMS won at least one game which was good. None qualified in the Juniors and both the Champ of Champ teams lost their second round.

The women’s team (Cecilie, Rosemary, Helen & Lana) won their first round 19/4  then almost caused a boil over against the Carlton Cornwall, the previous Champion team, losing 11/10….but actually winning 10 of the 15 ends….one ‘big’ end to CC after a great drive by their skip made the difference.The Carton Cornwall team eventually beat Blockhouse Bay 13-11.

Linda Fenton is in a St Heliers Junior team which has qualified.

In the Men’s Champ of Champs Mark G, Richard, Paul H and Eddie J won their first,  but turned up to watch the others at Mt Eden, after losing their second round.

In the Years 1-5 Fours, Bob L, Graeme, Tony W and Peter R’s team won  their first two games by 1 point but then lost to the section winners.  Lex, Bruce F, Mike D and Bill C’s won the first, lost the second and won their 3rd round by 1 point. Ian C played with 3 very new Juniors, Rob S, David W and Steve W, and did well to win their first round 23/11.
