Men's 1-5 Year Fours Final
What a Final! This game was a real nail biter with a lot of cheering from the sidelines.
Hansen, Utu Vave
John Lambarth, Kerry Little
(Onehunga) had one cracker of a tough game against
Curtis, Jeremy Reynolds
Jim Gray, Adrian Nancekivell
(Mt Albert/Sandringham). Onehunga won the 1st 2 ends but that didn't mean much as Mt Albert Sandringham weren't going to let them continue scoring and took an end of their own. It was end for end and all tied up in the 6th end 4-4. From here Onehunga held on to their lead tenuously as Mt Albert/Sandringham were still pushing with some great bowling. Mt Albert/Sandringham nearly managed to even the game up again in the 13th end but couldn't quite close the gap and the game went to Onehunga in the 14th end 11-9. Excellent game!
