Auckland Centre Reserve Day
10 Feb 2016
This coming weekend is the Auckland Finals Reserve Day for the Auckland Bowls Singles, Pairs, Triples and Fours in the Men and Women.
Teams from across Auckland have successfully made it through to this Finals weekend to represent their clubs.
There is a very strong showing from Carlton Cornwall who are in contention to win the Mens and Womens Singles, the Womens Pairs, and the Mens and Womens Triples. They have tough competition to make this happen so it will be a very competitive weekend of bowls.
The road to the finals was tough and the games were close. Peter Sain (Carlton Cornwall), Bill Whitburn (Carlton Cornwall), Neil Fisher (Howick) and Terry O'Connor (Carlton Cornwall) were all pushed in the Quarter Finals of the Mens Singles with the maximum win being by 5pts. This Semi Final will be played at 9am on Sunday 14th February and the Final to be played at11am.
Judi Wong (Carlton Cornwall) and Mary O'Keeffe (Blockhouse Bay) gave Karen Hema (Carlton Cornwall) and Linda Ralph (Carlton Cornwall) a run for their money in the Womens Singles but Karen and Linda proved too strong on the day. Their Final will be played on Sunday 14th at 9am.
In the Womens Pairs the wins were a little more convincing with Carlton Cornwall vs Onehunga & Districts and Carlton Cornwall vs Otahuhu Railway playing their Semi Finals on Saturday 13th at 9am and the Final being played at 11:30am.
The Mens Triples Semi Finalists had some tough competition in their Quarter Finals and it will be a tough job getting through to the Finals there is some very competitive teams. Hillsboro vs Hillsboro and Carlton Cornwall vs Henderson playing Saturday at 9am with the Final being played at 11am.
In the Womens Triples the games were extremely nerve-racking for the players involved as it was neck and neck a lot of the time for all teams. Carlton Cornwall vs Onehunga & Districts are the two teams that made it through to the Final to be played on Saturday 13th at 2pm.
Two very close games in the Semi Finals of the Mens Fours with Ellerslie only just nudging Carlton Cornwall out by 1pt to make it through to the Final and Mangere doing a great job of beating Blockhouse Bay by 1pt also. This Final will be played Saturday 13th at 9am.
This will be a great weekend to get along to Carlton Cornwall and support your team.
