Last Saturday a major triples match was played with Terry Mooney, Brent Lees and Vinnie Mirto against Peter Taylor, Roger Traves and Dool. It was an entertaining game with the scores being close throughout the game and the lead changing several times. The scores were 17 all on the second last end and it was Brent’s bowl on the jack on the last end that won the game for Terry Brent and Vinnie 18-17. Thanks to Bob Robson filling in for Terry who had to leave urgently during the game. There was also a consistency singles game with Bruce Webb against Jono Preston. The scores were close after 13 ends with Bruce leading 85-80. Then Bruce took control for the rest of the game winning 153-122.
