Once again we fielded 2 Sides in the Southern Indoor Evening Tom Watson Competition. One on both Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.
For the Tuesday Night Side, last year’s “oh so close” finalists, it was the season that got away. 6 Games lost by less than 4 shots, including 2 against the eventual 2nd place holders Armadale, by 3 shots and 1 shot, both decided with the last bowl of the night.
If we had only won those 2 matches we would have finished 2nd. As it was we finished the Season in a very admirable 3rd. place. With the second half of the season completed with 7 wins and only 2 loses, those against the final 1st. & 2nd place Sides. Both these sides being the only teams to defeat us twice during the year.
All in All a great effort and a fantastic year. Well Done.
The Wednesday Night competition is a much tougher Section and contains the Powerhouses that are Mentone, Brighton, Beaumaris & Keysborough (not to mention Burwood).
The Season included some very fine wins highlighted by a very impressive conquering of the then top side Brighton and an equally impressive result over 4th placed Keysborough. Seriously Well Done!
To Everyone that played this Season in both Sides, and especially to those that played both nights when we were short towards the end of the Season due to numerous holidays, many, many Thanks.
Bring on Next Season!
