BowlsFocus3/12.indd 1 17/3/11 9:18:05 AM 28-10 score to the club’s 58-29 win overall. Meanwhile, the corresponding final between Hampton and Ferntree Gully saw Hampton going along very nicely to hold a 28-15 lead overall at the halfway mark. But in a game of two halves, the determination of Ferntree Gully, (a combined team with Boro- nia), gradually pegged them back. In a spellbinding finish, the Fern- tree Gully rink skipped by Boronia’s Pat Walton with Leigh McLean, Irene Hannam and Cyn Cairn came from the clouds to draw against Hamp- ton’s Christine Elliott and her team of Sarah Hope, Jo Prendergast and Heather Edwards who were motor- ing along beautifully. Pat picked up 15 shots over the last eight ends to draw the game 24-24 after a titanic struggle. The Hampton rink skipped by Ruth Moore with Judy Swan, Glenda Cook and Anne Hope held sway for most of the day in a consistent display against FTG’s Glenice Sabell, Dianne Bennett, Gill Gardner and Barbara Star t with the final score being 28-19. An emergency prior to the game which somewhat weakened the Hampton side, saw Margaret Rad- ford, a former state player and VLBA president, being forced to withdraw from the contest, but this didn’t affect the performance of the team who went on to win overall 52-43. The team was overjoyed to win for Margaret. It was a game played in great spirit. For Glen Waverley, it was a second pennant victory, while Hampton celebrated its first triumph after four years in the competition. BVOR and competition convenor Pat Hyde introduced Bowls Victoria deputy president Betty Collins and director Maureen Connolly, who pre- sented the trophies to winners and runners-up in this competition with its history going back some 16 years. All bowlers were in unison in hoping the competition continues in its present form in future years. - Marnie Gregory Saturday ‘A’ and ‘B’ Division Pennant Grand finals at Alphington Bowls Club Division A: Glen Waverley d Don- caster 58-29 (A Dinn 30 L Holstock 19, G Goodwin 28 M Harding 10).
