Coleambally – Griffith pennants side through to regionals

Coleambally/Griffith women’s bowling side played the final of the Pennants against the strong L&D team recently. 

Maria Sosso, Cathie Elliott, Judie Saddler and Mary Mogliotti played well together to defeat Hilary's team 27-11.

Thanks Mary for playing so Marlene O'Connell could be the controlling body.

Rene Wade, Pam Jukes, Evelyn Coster and Rhonda Villata played good bowls but were beaten by two shots.

The final score for the day was 40-26.

Griffith/ Coleambally won 2017 pennants 16 1/2 against Leeton Soldiers Club 10 1/2. Rene did a great job as captain, winning so convincingly in her first year.

It was good having Coleambally playing with Griffith this year. Pam Jukes played all the games, Margaret Irvine played against Leeton Soldiers and Evelyn Coster played against L& D.

This is the first time that any of the current lady bowlers have won in Murrumbidgee District and they are very excited that they have progressed to regional.

On Saturday about half the usual number of bowlers turned up because of the threatening weather. However the rain stayed away until everyone was inside the club.

The winners on 27 points were Mark Jaffery and Cathie Elliott, with runners up by one shot Andy Hughes and Paul Huxley.
