Beginning the first round of the 2011 Pennants Season, against Club Merrylands was on their home green, was never going to be an easy ask.
The three, Grade 5, teams this year are Mal's Marauders, Hoffman's Hooligans and Booth's Bandits.
All three teams were under the pump, from the start, with good play by the Merrylands teams. There was a small interlude during play when marker pegs had to be measured by the Umpire, with one of the marker pegs having to be reset to the correct alignment. This anomaly was initially spotted by the Field Marshall.
With play going against us roughly 2:1 it wasn't until end 14 that The Field Marshall's team rallied together, a series of good ends, to finally obtain a result of 28 to Merrylands 25.
Mal's Marauders improved their position slightly to going down 16 points to Merrylands 23.
Hoffman's Hooligans, were unfortunaly sent packing with, 12 points to Merrylands 22.
WPH was 56 with Merrylands 70 giving Grade 5, 1 point for the round.
