Senior Pairs Competition 2020
We completed the finals in the inaugural Senior Pair competition today in excellent conditions.
The winners of each of the three sections in the Sectional rounds plus the next best team played off to determine the winner. The format was the same as for the Sectional rounds - a round robin competition with 3 games of 9 ends each, so each finalist played all the other finalists with the winer determined by wins, then margin, then ends won.
The finalists were:
- Rody Manning, John Fitzgerald
- David I Smith, Rob Henderson
- Peter Nixon, Bob Cunneen
- Geoff Godfrey, Brett Jenkins
After the first two rounds it came down to a shoot-out between Fitzy's team and Brett's team.
It was a great contest with Brett getting out to a strong start, however Rody and Fitzy played some great ends to get the scores level after 7 ends.
Rody and Fitzy then scored a 4 on the 8th end and it looked like it might be all over, but Brett had other ideas.
Geoff and Brett needed 4 shots on the last end to draw the game which would have won them the tournament on a count back. They were holding 3 shots when Fitzy put his last bowl almost on the jack. Fitzy was holding the shot at that point.
Brett then played a great on-shot with his last bowl and took Fitzy's bowl clean out. Unfortunately, Brett's bowl did not stay in the head which left him with only 3 shots, just 1 shot short of the win.
It was a great way to end a fun competition and we hope to get more of our seniors involved next year.
Well done to all the contestants!
