Zone 9 - Sydney Northern District Bowls
STATE PENNANT FINALS - Good Luck!!
The pinnacle of any Club is to compete for and perhaps win a State Pennant and this weekend sees four of our Clubs (representing sides in Grades 1-7) on the road to play at venues across the width and breadth of the State in pursuit of that holy grail.
The State Pennant Finals run from Friday 26th - Sunday 28th July with two rounds of sectional play on Friday and Round 3 on Saturday morning. A significant change to the schedule this year sees the top two teams in each section going through to a cross-over quarter final on Saturday afternoon followed by the semi-finals and Final on Sunday.
Zone 9 Teams at the State Pennant Finals
Grade 1 Belrose Forster BC
Grade 2 Mona Vale St Georges Basin BC
Grade 3 Asquith West Tamworth BC
Grade 4 Asquith Port City BC
Grade 5 Mona Vale Halekulani BC
Grade 6 Belrose Kiama BC
Grade 7 Harbord Nelson Bay BC
So many challenges face our bowlers over the coming days:
Can the Grade 1 Belrose Bulls, a champion side built on spirit and home-grown talent, match the many star-studded Clubs bolstered by international and inter-state imports?
Can Mona Vale match their achievements of 2017 and bring home another Grade 2 State Flag?
Can either or both of the Asquith Grade 3 and Grade 4 sides bring home their Club's first State Flag?
Can the Mona Vale Grade 5 and Belrose Grade 6 sides capitalise on their outstanding victories at the Zone play-offs?
Can the Harbord Grade 7 side make their own history at the same venue where their club-mates won the 2013 State Grade 2 flag?
Keep an eye on the BNSW website throughout the weekend for scores and other news. A summary of play and results will be provided on this website at the end of each day.
Best wishes to all our Zone 9 sides!! Carpe diem!!
