EGBD Grand Final 2018

The East Gippsland Bowls Division grand final was held at Bairnsdale Bowls Club on the 24th February and Metung Bowls Club was represented by our Division 4 side, playing Paynesville.DSC_0380

Conditions didn’t make the contest any easier with the wind blowing at over 30 km/hr during the afternoon and with gusts exceeding 50 km/hr.  The temperature during the first half of the match rose from 33.5C to almost 37C.

Just prior to the 3:00pm break the cool change swept through with temperatures plummeting to the low 20s and with a dumping of 10mm of rain, completely changing conditions on the rinks and adding to the challenge faced by all players.DSC_0369DSC_0370

Unfortunately for our team Paynesville were the better side on the day, defeating Metung by 6 shots, with a score of 48 to 42, to win the pennant.

 

Despite our loss our side can be proud that, being from one of the small clubs in the EGBD, we made it to the grand final.  Congratulations to the team on their achievement.DSC_0383
