Zone 9 - Sydney Northern District Bowls
Zone 16 - Illawarra - wins Interzone Challenge Shield
Zone 9 plays Zone 2 in the Interzone Challenge Shield
The East- West Interzone Challenge Shield slipped through our fingers in the third and final round of the Zones 2.4,9 & 16 Interzone Challenge, to be won by Zone 16 representing Illawarra Clubs.
It was a close tussle for 2nd placing with Zone 2 in front with just 5 ends left to play in their match against Zone 9. Our teams just missed out to 2nd place by just 3 shots. A most disappointing day for our teams who seemed to be in a commanding position going into today's match. It must have also been a disappointing weekend for the Zone 4 - Central & Western NSW - side, losing all three of their matches. They had difficulty in fielding 6 teams and had to call on players from our Zone.
Results of today's play were: Zone 2 defeated Zone 9 130 - 98
Zone 16 defeated Zone 4 160 - 91
Final placings were: Zone 16 2 wins plus 84 shots
Zone 2 2 wins plus 66 shots
Zone 9 2 wins plus 63 shots
Zone 4 3 losses minus 213 shots
