It was a lean weekend for Central Coast bowls clubs in the State Pennant Finals played across seven grades from August 9 to 11 with Breakers Country Club Wamberal in Grade 3 at Mt Lewis the best performed club overall winning its first two games and just falling short of winning its section.
In Grade 1 at Belrose, Ettalong Memorial failed to win a game in elite company with Taren Point taking out the prestigious John Young Shield with a convincing win over Belrose in the final.
Wyong recorded just one win against the home side in Grade 2 at Port Macquarie which was won overall by a well performed Cabramatta side.
In Grade 3 at Mt Lewis, Breakers started strongly but an undefeated Malua Bay proved too good for a well-earned victory.
Davistown RSL could only manage a solitary win against Dubbo City in Grade 4 at Ettalong Memorial while Tomakin went through the weekend undefeated to make Club history in winning its first ever State flag.
South Tamworth hosted Grade 5 where Diggers@ The Entrance recorded a tie against Edgeworth and a win against Stuart Point but Narrendra didn’t lose a game for outright honours.
In Grade 6 at Ballina, Bateau Bay could only manage a win against Peakhurst with a formidable Lawson taking all before it for a well-earned title.
Halekulani in Grade 7 at Sylvania recorded a face saving win against Bega but Coonamble were never headed in their quest to be the best.
