The Southern Cross Bowls club B Grade Men’s Singles were decided recently. There were some great battles which resulted in some very close ends. A few competitors and spectators have suggested (tongue in cheek) that it might be possible to sell the television rights next year.
In the first round Wayne Foster defeated Allan Davidson: Brad Gainey was too strong for Vince Hemmings. John Lawardon had a win over Pat Gainey. Joe Torrisi won his game against Barry Frame.
In the second round Brad Gainey recorded another win defeating Wayne Foster. Joe Torrisi outplayed John Lawardon.
The final went to Joe Torrisi who scored a 25-20 win in his game against Brad Gainey, who I understand is off to do more training.
In A Grade competition played to date Geoff def Wayne; Bill def Pat; Clark def Brad; Barry def John; Bill def Clark; Dave def Geoff; Slave defeated Vince; Dave def Kev, Joe had a bye as Peter was unavailable.
