THE Post Sectional Final for our Grade 4 Yellow side commenced on Sunday 28th April at Raymond Terrace. Two games were bowled on that day, one on the Monday and another on Tuesday. Going into the last day of play our side were in equal first place with Cardiff. Both sides holding 14 points just a difference in margins they had 68, Tea Gardens 57. The margins being irrelevant as we were bowling against Cardiff on this final day of play, we just needed to win. One TG team had a win, but their score was not enough to compensate for our losing team, we gained 1 point Cardiff 4 points, 18 v 15 so close and yet so far. A great effort by our side, well done ladies. Congratulations to Jean Glover, Bev Stephens, Loretta Baker and Karen McPhie who scored 8 shots in one end bowling against Lambton Park during the Finals. Many thanks to all our club members, the members from the men’s bowling club and the friends who came to support our side at the Pennant Finals, it was fantastic having you there to cheer us on.
