Thirds in Semi-Final

Third SideOur mighty thirds smashed Narre Warren at Mooroolbark to progress to the Divisional Semi Final in Division 6. They will meet Blackburn who won a thriller over Abefeldie at Swinburne Avenue today.

The top side were at Swinburne Avenue also as they battled a strong Diamond Creek outfit. Diamond Creek edged ahead just before the tea break and had the lead out to twenty shots before it closed to 8 shots with five ends to go. The opposing skip in the Cooper rink won the last two ends after Ashy were holding, in a superb display. This tipped the margin to over ten shots stopping the progress of the Villani rink who won 22-8 in a magnificent performance.

Ashy were not disgraced and were given a clear glimpse of what will be a weekly standard of bowling next year.

But all the focus should be on our thirds who have once again pantsed the opposition for a big win.

Get to Ringwood tomorrow afternoon and cheer them on. We got to this stage, Division 6 Semi-Final in 2012/2013 and were smacked by Fitzroy, this is the time to go one further.

To the supporters who went to the two finals today, many thanks for your support,

GO ASHY!

TopSideWow, what a magnificent weekend, all three of our finalist have been promoted, mission accomplished, you little ripper!

Now for the narratives.

Yesterday our seconds went to Mulgrave Country Club at huge odds after being smashed there recently. They went back again yesterday and knocked Mulgrave out of the race, a sensational performance. As you can see in a previous post Dawn and Liz showed true grit to stand up in the final two ends to take a tied match to a four shot win, a win to go down in the history books. Today wasn't their day as Middle Park took the win but we are all immensely proud and nothing can take away the importance of yesterdays win. Div 3, you beauty.

A great win for the second side. at Afternoon tea 3 shots up. On the last end we were 74 all but Dawn drew a resting toucher to win 20 to 19 and Liz ended up three shots up so we won by 4 points. Very close exciting game. We play Middle Park at Bennettswood tomorrow. Go Ashy.

A full house at Ashy today as bowlers came from all around the state to enjoy the Christmas Gala Day for 2015. In overcast conditions it was great to have so many visitors out on the greens in a highly competitive afternoons sport.

It was only made a success through sheer hard work and all involved deserve the highest praise. The lunch was superb with a healthy salad, quiche, vegies and finished off with fruit salad and ice-cream. The carrot salad was a stand-out.
