TOUGH DAY OUT: Moruya's Don Copper watches on after a bowl in the grade two state pennant final against Mona Vale in Wagga on Sunday.

The wet weather couldn’t stop Mona Vale from taking out the grade two state pennant on Sunday.

While rain plagued the three-day event, the final was played in horrible conditions at the Rules Club.

However, Mona Vale persevered to take a 66-40 win over Moruya in the final. 

Mona Vale had luck on their side to qualify for the finals.

Taking on Inverell East in the semis, the two teams were locked at 56-all following 63 ends.

It meant all three rinks went to an extra end.

Inverell were up on two rinks before a brilliant bowl from skipper Stephen Clark changed the game.

He knocked out a bowl to take five shots and give his team a one-shot win.

Temora also did the region proud, making it through to the semi-finals before losing to Moruya 58-46.

Despite the poor weather, Zone 8 president Gary Brookes was pleased by how the event, held in combination by the Rules Club and Wagga RSL club went.

“The weather (for the final) was absolutely horrendous and was bad for the whole weekend it was but you can’t control the weather,” Brookes said. “Apart from the weather everything went exceptionally well and everyone with what went on over the weekend at both clubs and there was great support.”
