Zone 9 - Sydney Northern District Bowls
ZONE 9 SENIORS @ STATE INTERZONE
Drawn in what turned out to be an extremely even section, the Zone 9 Senior Side fought valiantly but just failed to progress beyond the sectional rounds at the BNSW Seniors Inter-zone Sides Championship held this week at Wollongong RSL BC (Figgy Bowlo).
All three of Zone 9's sectional matches were decided by 7 shots or less. As further evidence of the competitiveness of the teams, all Zones in our section finished yesterday's play with one win and one loss with this morning's Round 3 matches deciding the section winner as Zone 15 emerged victorious.
Round 1 Zone 9 lost to Zone 1 (Far North Coast) 53-60
Round 2 Zone 9 beat Zone 6 (Hunter) 59-53
Round 3 Zone 9 lost to Zone 15 (Central Coast) 50-57
Wayne Fletcher, Roger Manning, Graham Tetstall & Steve Clark 23-16, 23-15, 11-22
Michael Sparozvich*, Herbie Brenner, Tony Taylor & Crawford Linton 12-23, 19-13, 17-17
Vinco Beram, John Boreham, Ral Lewis & John Venteman 18-21, 17-25, 22-18
(*Michael Sparozvich replaced the injured Rod Silber part way through the opening match)
