 Miraflores Club Drawn Triples Finals

Oct. 2018 - Miraflores BC

Report by Grant Frost, photo editing  by John Carr. 

Dramatic Finale at Miraflores!

The Club Drawn Triples final took place this week in warm sunny weather after being postponed because of Saturdayís heavy rain. With a good entry and some hotly fancied triples being drawn we looked forward to a feast of quality bowling. The early rounds saw some very closely contested matches including one requiring an extra end. The semi-finals were closely fought, but the teams of Stuart Thacker, Mike Woolley and Anne Clough and Grant Frost, Wendy Wood & Pam Kinane won through.

Finals day arrived and as always there were a large group of people watching. Stuart and his team got off to a good start to lead 6-2 after 5 ends. Grant and his team then took control winning the next 8 ends to take what appeared to be an unassailable 15-6 lead. Stuart and team snatched back the initiative picking up 9 shots over the next 3 ends to level the scores. Grantís team won the penultimate end only for Stuart to knock out the shot wood with his last bowl on the last end to tie the match 16-16. The extra end saw Stuartís team holding shot and Grantís last wood narrowly missing the jack giving Stuart, Mike and Anne the title. Both teams receiving warm applause and congratulations from the crowd for their efforts. Tony on presenting the trophy said that it was a shame there had to be a loser and that it was one of the best finals he had witnessed.

Finally, the Miraflores Open sponsored by Ibex Insurance starts on 10th November, entries close on 2nd November. As always there will be a warm welcome for all spectators with food and drink available from the bar.

Winners & Finalists.

L to R: Mike Woolley, Anne Clough & Stuart Thacker and Pam Kinane, Grant Frost & Wendy Wood.
