IT TOOK an extra end in the mixed pairs to decide a wonderful mixed pairs match played last Thursday afternoon, with Peter Smith and Gail Rowlands prevailing 22 shots to 20 over Bruce Tout and Ina Ford.
In another magnificent game of mixed pairs Terry and Bessie Coggan hung on to defeat a fast finishing Mark and Robyn Maynard, defeating them 24 shots to 22 played last Saturday afternoon.
In the championship triples Bruce McCarthy, “Mitch” Peterson and Col Harris caused a bit of an upset when they defeated defending triples champions Barney Reardon, Tom French and Mark Maynard 18 shots to 16 last Sunday morning.
The “Macca” led trio flew out of the barriers to lead 12-4 at the end of the eighth end with Barney’s side fighting back to trail 16-12 after 16 and 17-14 after 18.
The last three ends were a classic as both sides tried to grab the ascendancy but Bruce, “Mitch” and Col scored one shot and only allowed their opponents single shots on the final two ends to claim a great victory.
While in the championship singles, Donny Smith had too much experience for a gallant Peter Gailey, defeating him 31 shots to 16 last Saturday.
The match was pretty even early with Smith holding a slender 10-9 lead after 10 ends, but Smith skipped away taking four of the next six ends to lead 18-12, before stamping his authority on the match by scoring 13 shots to Peters four over the final 12 ends to go on and have a rather easy victory.
