St Heliers 1-5 Year Interclub Champions
17 Feb 2015
The side from St Heliers Bowling Club, St Heliers Gold, walked away with the title of Auckland 1-5 Year Interclub Champions. Runners up were Pt Chev Swashbucklers. The Post Section games were played at Pt Chevalier Bowling Club. And the final was definitely worth a watch.
In the 1-5 Year Singles Final Steve Hoeft (Pt Chevalier) and Alan Oliver (St Heliers) had a cracker of a game with Oliver up 10-2 in the 7th end only to give the next 6 ends to Hoeft bringing the game to 10 each in the 13th end. Things looked good for Hoeft when he took the lead 16-12 at the 18th end but then Oliver found his stride and won the game 21-16.
The 1-5 Year Pairs wasn't such a lucky game for the St Heliers Gold Side of Richard Kempthorne and Mark Posa. St Heliers started the scoring against the team of Vince Pitman and Phil Aitken the Pt Chev Swashbucklers, with a 1 but it was down hill from there losing the next 6 ends. At the 7th end the score was 9-1. Kempthorne and Posa gave it a nudge with a 4 in the 11th end but it was too late and the team of Pitman and Aitken took the win 15-7.
The Triples was another good watch with the St Heliers Gold side of Peter Blick, Ling Qu and Roger Johnstone taking the win from Aiden Takarua, Jenny Stockford and Angela Temple from the Pt Chev Swashbucklers. The game started with St Heliers Gold getting 2 in the first end but Pt Chev Swashbucklers answerd with a 3 to win the next end but only to give away the next 7 ends bring the score to 15-6 to St Heliers in the 10th end. Pt Chev Swashbucklers couldn't find their way back and Blick, Qu and Johnstone took the win 16-13.
