Pirates Take Milford
07 Feb 2018
The Pt Chevalier Pirates, Aiden Takarua, Alex Reed and Steve Hoeft took out the rich Milford 5000 Tournament at the Milford Bowling Club on February 3rd and 4th.
In a field of 30 teams coming from as far as Dunedin in the south and Kensington in the north, the Pirates commandeered the huge trophy along with the lucrative purse of $1500. The junior tournament allows for two 1-5 year players and one 1-8 year player. With this being Steve's last year in juniors, it was a fitting finale to win the coveted trophy. Both Aiden and Alex are in their fourth season so they look forward to competing again in the coming years.
Auckland teams dominated the top three positions in the main event with Balmoral and Papatoetoe filling second and third place.
The Milford Bowling Club
and all their sponsors continue to support junior bowlers and once again
provided excellent facilities and hospitality throughout the weekend.
