Airlie Beach Bowls Club round-up

AIRLIE BEACH BOWLS: The Ladies Pennant season has been a great experience.

The club fielded teams in both Division 1 and Division 3: 20 ladies in total required.

Division 1 won only two games for the season and now will be relegated back to Division 2 in 2020.

Division 3 will remain in Division 3.

The ladies have a combination of experienced players and many new enthusiastic bowlers.

It is expected the teams will continue to have great fun and will win a few more games next season.

Men's Pennant: The results for the season are not available at the time of this report. Division 1 played at home against Seaforth and the Airlie team went down with composite score 51-63 dashing the hope for getting into Division 1 next year.

Division 4 did not play due to heavy rain in Mackay.

Division 5 had a home game and defeated North Mackay, composite score 51-27 and both rinks up.

That win saved the team from being relegated to Division 6.

Club Competition: Andy Bell was defeated by Man Isgro 25-16.

The game was played in drizzling rain and miserable conditions.

Top marks for tenacity to both players and the marker John Beach Snr.

Man Isgro will next play John Fielding in what is being called a David and Goliath match. Games controller Rick Brunell said he is keen to have a final spectacular with the B grade single and the senior final played on the same day.

The next round for Business House Bowls will start on July 24.
