The final of the Parkes Bowling & Sports Club’s 2022 Major Fours was played on Sunday with Mick Went, Mark Dwyer, Eddie McPhee and Pete McPhee playing Brian Townsend, Jo Simpson, Mick Simpson and Ton Furey.
The early ends were evenly divided but Team Went eventually took control of the match and after 16 ends had a commanding lead, 21 – 8. Over the next four ends Team Townsend won three ends scoring four, three and six to Team Townsend’s two and with one end to play the lead had been cut to two shots and the score was 23 – 21. However, Team Townsend could not sustain their run and after a tense last end Team Went scored three shots to win the match 26 – 21.
Congratulations to all the players but in particular to Mick, Mark, Eddie and Pete, the Major Fours Champions for 2022.
In a Major Triples match Rob Tinker, Col Miller and Graham Dixon won the first end but from then on it was the only time they held the lead. The team of Col Hayward, Col Mudie and Rob Irving advanced to the next round with a 23 – 10 win.
Due to the rather wet weather no social bowls were played on Thursday or Saturday last week.
