Round 11 vs CLAYTON – At Ashburton

Ashburton hosted the might of Clayton trying to consolidate their position at the top of the Ladder. We know no matches will be easy so it is imperative we take every opportunity presented to gain vital points.
So we fielded an almost full strength side, missing only the finesse and guile of Peter Simos.
SKIP: Rob Wilson Tony Villani Grant Pickering
3rd. Ian Lee Liz Kortum Dianne McLeod
2nd. Shaun Wilson Ray NAmour Ken Lawrence
Lead: Heinz Kazenwedel Terry Quirk Sharon Cornish

Clearly Clayton had come to play, they had a different looking side from last time we meet, and some very strong bowlers.
After 10 ends Ashy trailed in 2 rinks and was just ahead on the Big board 29 vs 27. Grant Pickering’s rink seemed to just not have the right bowls tonight and the opposing skip was excellent. At one point drawing a dead set resting toucher when down 4 in the head. Despite winning 8 of the 17 ends Ashy could not collect multiple shots but dropped two 3’s, two 2’s and a disasterous 5 on the very first end. Battling on gamely against a dominant and noisy Tim Gole led rink they fell 8 vs 19, and finished 2 ends before the other 2 rinks.
In Rob Wilson’s rink the opposing skip and 3rd were putting on a clinic. On NUMEROUS ends Ashy held 3, 4, 5 and even 6 shots, only to go down by 1 to unbelievable bowls and just that little bit of luck. They dropped another disasterous 6 on the 2nd end and this would prove pivotal later in the night.after 14 ends they trailed 9 vs 13, and held multiple shots on all of the last 3 ends, but we will come back to them.

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.
