Mens State Pairs

The semifinal and final of the Mens state pairs were held on the free running Eastern Park greens on Sunday. Big thanks to all who contributed to the day.

Semifinal 1 the Queenscliff veterans Barrie Close and Dennis Arthur from Queenscliff played the Gunsser brothers from City of Geelong. Every time Carl and David tried to get back into the game the Queenscliff pair could do it just a little better. Although the score was not a true indication of the match Close and Arthur winning 17/10

The other semi was an all-City of Geelong affair. Zane Lugg (s) and Craig Elliott their opponents Graham Harrison and Henry Heer (s). Zane and Craig were both really on song and never really gave Graham and Henry a chance to get their game. Elliott and Lugg were always in control eventually winning 21/10

The final was of the standard you would expect from 4 of best bowlers in Geelong. In an immaculate display of draw bowling Zane Lugg and Craig Elliott soon opened a commanding lead of 12/4. The 2 seasoned campaigners Close and Arthur with their never say die attitude lifted and got the game back to 10/14 and 3 ends to play. A bad result from a Close drive and the score was 20/10 to Lugg and Elliott. With precision drawing Close and Arthur put together a well-crafted end to get their 6 back 16/20. Last end Close and Arthur holding 5 shots but 2 great draw shots from Craig gave them 2 good second shots. Zane closed off any real chance the Queenscliff pair had off grabbing a late victory. Elliot and Lugg winning a high class final 20/17.

The Geelong bowls Region would like to wish Zane Lugg and Craig Elliott all the best when they represent Geelong in the state championships at Bendigo in April.
