Bowls News: Winter 2022

By Ray Brown

The YMGCR Bowls season was very successful.

Our Weekend A1 pennant side was rewarded with the premiership win for the first time in 50 years!

Facing Wodonga in the final, we fell behind early with Wodonga streaking to a 10-shot lead, but the troops hung in and turned the tide, eventually running away with a 7 shot victory, 74 to 67.

It was a very rewarding win, against an opponent who have been the yard stick of the competition for many years.

In May, the team travelled to Moama for the Victorian Championships. After getting off to a bad start with a loss in game one, the team bounced back to win the next two and got ourselves back in the mix. Unfortunately, we were defeated in the next game by a single shot to eventual winners, South Bendigo.

Our Midweek A1’s also had a fantastic year and finished the regular season on top.

After a stumble in the first final, the team bounced back well by defeating Wodonga in the Preliminary. Facing Wangaratta in the Grand Final, our team held strong all day against a strong opposition and managed to get within a sniff of victory over the last few ends, however we couldn’t quite finish the job, going down 55-49.

In May, we had three of our gun ladies represent Victoria in the State fours. Claire Sanders, Laureen Smith and Anne Miles teamed up with world champion Kylie Whitehead (Wodonga) to win the Australian Ladies State Fours on the Gold Coast. Congratulations to our girls, a great example of the quality of players we have at our club.

Later in May, in the Victorian State Championships, Anne Miles teamed up with Wangaratta gun, Ian Brimblecombe, to win the Victorian State Mixed Pairs in Bendigo. The pair will now travel to the Gold Coast to represent Victoria.

Our other two national champs, Laureen and Claire will also feature after finishing runners up in the Ladies Triples with Anne.
