2019 Bowler of the Year Tables take Shape

After the Fours and the Triples have been completed, Terrigal bowlers feature heavily in the top 10.  Last years Bowler of the Year Darren Morrison is once again on top sharing the lead with his team mate, Rod Rewko.

For the first time President's Reserve will be evaluated for a Bowler of the Year award.   At the moment no player has won points in more than one event.  This may change when the singles and pairs are played later in the year.

In the Seniors, Ettalong Memorial has the top 6 places with the 2018 Bowler of the Year John Roberts, currently in 6th place.

In the Under 18 Bowler of the year, Josh McDonnell and Bailey Meti are tied in the lead as they played together in winning the Fours and Pairs.  Much depends on the singles being played next weekend.

Ourimbah Maintain Upper-hand in Presidents Reserve Triples Final

Presidents Reserve Triples Champions ……..Adam Humphries, Tony Aldrich, Steve Balsdon Ourimbah RSL
Ourimbah RSL’s Adam Humphries, Tony Aldrich and Steve Balsdon where in control for most of the game defeating Ettalong’s Garry Eggleton, Carl Wilson and Michael Braham in the final of the Presidents Reserve Triples  29-20 played at Ettalong Memorial BC.
It was a good standard of a game but every time Ettalong threatened Ourimbah had the ability to come back to maintain the upper-hand.
It is the first year that the President Reserve Triples has been a Bowls NSW Championship event and the Ourimbah team will now play-off in the State Championships to be played at Ettalong later in the year.

Terrigal Capture Back to Back Open Titles

BCC-Z15 Triples Champions 2019 (l/r) Jeff Watson, Darren Morrison Rod Rewko
In an impressive display the Terrigal trio of Jeff Watson, Rod Rewko and Darren Morrison outplayed Ettalong’s  Zach Robertson, John Roberts and Lee Trethowan in a most convincing manner to take out the 2019 Bowls Central Coast Triples title 32-12 at Ettalong Memorial BC.
Both teams had strong semi-final wins and it promised to be a crackerjack of a final, but the Terrigal team came out firing and had the title in their keeping leading 19-3 after just eight ends.
Darren Morrison, BCC-Z15 Bowler of the Year in 2018, skipped Terrigal to a Fours title earlier in the year and he is now on track to achieving the “Grand Slam” with just the Pairs and Singles remaining.

Bailey Meti & Josh McDonnell proudly display their winner’s medallions
Congratulations to Josh McDonnell and Bailey Meti on defeating Reegan Peterson and Travis Henley
19-12 in the final of the Bowls Central Coast Under 18 Pairs Championship played at Ettalong Memorial BC. It was an outstanding game with Peterson & Henley jumping away to an early 7-0 lead. McDonnell and Meti came back to lead 9-8 on the eighth end with both teams then leveling at 12 all after 12 ends. The skills and talent of the Central Coast youth was on full display and had the small crowd of spectators on the edge of their seats. It looked as if the title would go down to the wire, but one wayward end by Peterson and Henley dropping five shot cost them the title.
