Zone 9 Rookies Pairs winners
Tony Tinworth, Sunday, 2 October 2011

Zone Rookie Pairs winners Richard Hunt & Bob Leonard (St Ives) missed winning their section and progressing to the semi-final by 2 shots in the State playoffs at Raymond Terrace today.

They lost their first round match by one shot, 9 shots to 10 and then went on to win their next two matches easily, 10 shots to 3 and 23 shots to 4. This gave them a score of 2 wins + 25 shots, 2 shots less than the Zone 2 team of Phillip Smith & Lee Bloor who had 2 wins + 27 shots and whom they had defeated by 7 shots in round 2! How unpredictable are bowls! All matches were played over 12 ends. How they beat the rain is a mystery!

Well done but bad luck Richard & Bob.
