Newcastle Zone Bowls Finals

The Soldiers Point final team of Collaros, Tarrant, Penman and Green.

THE finals of the Newcastle Zone ‘Fours’ Lawn bowls finals were held last week.

In the ‘Open’ event the Soldiers Point team of Dave Tarrant, Mark Green, Leigh Penman and Daniel Collaros reached the Final after beating strong teams from Charlestown and East Maitland.

However, they faced the favoured team of Raymond Terrace with former Australian international Lee Schraner as skip.

The Terrace team, the Jets, proved to be dominant in the Final winning the match 27 shots to 9.

In a thrilling encounter in the ‘Reserve Fours’ Semi-final the Soldiers Point team of George and Tony Pearson, Pete Smith and Graeme Rainey played a strong Nelson Bay team with Peter Mentis as skip.

The high quality match ended in a 25 shots all draw needing two additional ends to decide the match in favour of Nelson Bay winning by one shot.

Nelson Bay went on to win the Final.

Congratulations go to both these Soldiers Point Teams for reaching the finals in a very large field in the Newcastle Zone!
