3rd place – Pony Club

Community Challenge

Final’s week was on, as the top four played off for the $1500 prizemoney.

In semi-final No 1 we saw our ladder leaders Pony Club take on the Darts 1 team who snuck into 4th spot on the back of two good wins the week before. And with a last end, last bowl thriller it was Darts 1 victorious 9/8.

In semi-final No 2 the ever-consistent Ambos team took on the Cricket Umpires. And right from the outset the Ambos gained control going out to an 8/2 lead after six ends. But the umpires dug in with a 2 on the next end to stay alive then dropped a 2 on the 8th end. Needing 6 on the last to draw, the umpires grabbed 3 shots to have a final result of 10/7 to the Ambos.

3rd v 4th saw the Umpires continue their last end form into this match gaining a 3/0 lead over the Pony Club after 2 ends. But the Pony Club hit back running out with the next 5 ends to have a commanding 11/3 lead. Umpires managed to win the last 2 ends, but the damage was done, and Pony Club ran out winners 11/5.

Our final started out as all finals should with teams trading shots and after 5 ends, we had a 4/3 score-line in favour of the Ambos over Darts 1. Ambos put their foot down with consistent heads and draw bowls and picked up a 3 – 1 – 1 over the next 3 ends holding a commanding 9/3 lead into the last end. But the need to get a 6 by Darts 1 was too much and they picked up 1. Congratulations to this year’s champions The Ambos winning 9/4 and picking up $700 for their charity.

In the minor placings, Bobcats 1 were successful in winning their group after overcoming the ever-professional GWS team with Toby Greene stepping in for the night. Thanks to the GWS boys for jumping in for a game and I’m assured they will be back next year to go 1 better. In group 2 the Helicopters (who narrowly missed the top 4) showed they were too consistent and picked up bar vouchers.
