Pt Chev Trio Take the Milford 5000
09 Feb 2015
Congratulations to Steve Hoeft, Aiden Takarua and Phil Aitken on winning the Milford 5000 over the weekend.
Two full greens of 1-5 Year Junior bowlers from Whangarei to South Auckland competed in the two day, eight game, two bowl event.
The Pt Chevalier team got off to a good start holding a win in their first game until the last end when the opposing skip drew to the head to secure a draw. “After drawing our first game we thought that our chances of winning the tournament were gone" said Hoeft. But they kept plugging away and won the next seven games by good margins and ends tally.
At the conclusion of the tournament there were two undefeated teams, both with seven wins and a draw. Hoeft, Takarua and Aitken came out on top, winning on ends and points differential.
Milford Bowling Club provided superb catering both days and the tournament was a huge success for all involved.
