PT CHEVALIER BOWLS – JUNIOR CLASSIC (1-8) YEARS
A big shout out to all the 1 to 8 year bowlers who supported our Junior Classic over Labour Weekend. Everyone had a lot of fun and it was a privilege hosting such an awesome bunch of people.
As always, the competition was fierce. Only 3 of the 21 teams remained unbeaten after the first day - Peni Panapa (Mangere), John Crowe (Blockhouse Bay) and our own Aaron White (Pt Chevalier).
After round five, Aaron White’s team were the only five winners, with John Crowe drawing with Adam Baillie (Composite) and Peni Panapa going down to Karen Kuzimski (New Lynn) 12-6.
Two rounds later and with only one round left, Aaron White was still unbeaten with 7 wins, with Peni Panapa on 6 and John Crowe with 5.5 wins. The only way for a change in leaders was if Aaron White lost, and Peni Panapa won.
Bottom of the table, Paddy from Mt Albert team did their best to take down the leaders. They fought back from 10-3 down to be 10 all with just 3 ends to play.
The Pt Chevalier were not going to let the game slip away though and dug deep, scoring a 4 and a 3 to break away again. Meanwhile, Phil Ross’s Royal Oak Titans got the better of Peni’s Mangere team to notch up their 3rd win of the tournament.
Huge congratulations to Pt Chevalier’s newest members – Aaron White, Hitesh Ranchhod and Stephen Campbell and Hobsonville’s Stu Parker. The team played consistently good bowls all weekend. It was a great achievement for the team who between them only have 8 years bowling experience – their skipper Aaron is in his third year, whilst Hitesh and Stu are in their second, and Stephen Campbell is just in his first.
Thank you to the entire Pt Chevalier Crew for pitching in over the weekend and beforehand. You all rock!
