Stockton Men’s Bowling Club


30 MAY 2021.

As mentioned in the last edition both of our No.7 Grade Sides won their Section and proceeded to the Playoffs for the District “Flag” and if successful go on to the State Playoffs.

Our No.6 Grade Side were in with a chance of a Section win but unfortunately other results did not go their way and they missed out by 2 points.

The No.7 Grade District playoffs were held at the Club Lambton Bowling Club on Saturday and Sunday 29 and 30 May.

The 8 Sides were split into 2 Sections and played 3 games to decide a Section winner to contest the Final.

Our No.1 Grade Side played Valentine in the Saturday morning game and in a cliff hanger the match ended in a 63 shots draw and 5.5 points.

In the afternoon game they played Lowlands and in another tight finish were edged out by 50-53 shots and 1 point.

On Sunday morning they played East Maitland and again finished on the wrong side of the Master Board losing by 51-54 shots and scoring 2 points.

Our No.2 Side played Teralba on Saturday morning and won by 68-43 shots securing 9 points.

In the afternoon they played Nelson Bay1 Side and in another close game the match finished in a 57 shots draw and 5.5 points.

On Sunday morning they played Edgeworth and won by 59-55 shots and 8 points.

The final result was a win in the Section for Nelson Bay with 24.5 points with Stockton 22.5 Points.

A disappointing result for our No.7.2 Side as they were undefeated throughout the season.

The team of Peter Quinn, Dave Burnett, Jill Young and Carol Shepheard played exceptionally well in the Finals matches their results were against Teralba they won by 68-43 shots, Nelson Bay 24 -18 shots and Edgeworth 27-7 shots.

A thank you to Supak Delaney who filled in for Dave Burnett on the Sunday morning when he was unavailable.

The Team Managers award voted by the players went to Ric Clark by 1 vote over Paul Taylor.
