Champions Southern League ‘A’ Division
& SABA Discovery Division
A great week for Vistabella Bowls Club, with important wins for our teams, on Monday in the SABA leagues and Friday in the Southern league.
On Monday the Albatrosses clinched the title of Champions of the SABA Discovery Division while on Friday the Lanzadores were confirmed as Champions of the Southern League ‘A’ division with a 15 point cushion with only one game to play.
On Monday the Albatrosses travelled to Greenlands to take on their Sycamores and with wins on 3 rinks and a shot total of 110 to 94 in our favour we sealed the title of Champions of the Discovery Division with two games left to play.
Our winners were Gail Willshire, Mac Maclean and Fred Willshire, Neil Burrows, Les Barber and Ian Kenyon and Tony French, Barbara Brown and Arthur Brown. The Eagles were also in good form on Monday and enjoyed their visit to Emerald Isle to face the Neptunes winning by 10 points to 4 and 105 shots to 90.
Mo Foulcer, Richard Hind and Sue Mynott, Lesley Prockter, Ken Savage and Brian Prockter, Rosemarie Savage, Peter Cadwell and Diane Hudson and Jeff Austin, Jeff Neve and Pat Rafferty provided our wins.
Wednesday and Thursday were not quite so productive as our Winter League team lost by 4 points to 8 on Wednesday to a strong Quesada team well done to our two winning rinks Gail Willshire, Jeff Austin, Andy Leggatt and Fred Willshire and Di Harwood, Barbara Brown, Jim Harwood and Arthur Brown.
On Thursday our Fed Fours team lost to Emerald Isle despite winning one and drawing one of the three rinks but lost out by two shots at 50 to 52 to lose by 3 points to 5. Our winning rink was Neil Burrows, Barbara and Arthur Brown and Maggie Furness while Sheila Cox, Andy Leggatt. Les Barber and Mike Regan managed a draw.
Friday was the highlight of the week with the Lanzadores making the difficult trip to Country Bowls where a win by 8 points 6 and 118 shots to 88 was enough to ensure that no one else could catch them with only 1 game left to play. Great wins came from Gail Willshire, Les Barber and Fred Willshire, Martin Foulcer, Barbara Brown and Richard Lee and Sheila and Mike Cox and Mac Maclean.
The Conquistadores were also on the winning side against La Siesta Silvers wins from Di Harwood, Jeff Neve and Jim Harwood, Carol Austin, Allan Sinclair and Pat Rafferty, June Hitchcock, Audrey Sinclair and George Gandy and Lesley Prockter, Ken Savage and Brian Prockter were enough to produce a 10 points to 4 win by 118 shots to 100.
A great performance from everyone the club is proud of you.
