Congratulations to NBC Sports Club on winning the No. 7 Pennant yesterday. West Pennant Hills was delighted to host the final on behalf of Zone 10.
In the morning's games, NBC Sports had a good win over Carlingford 71-56, with R Bryon's team's 32-12 win being the cornerstone of their success. The other game was between Wenty Leagues and Dundas Sports. These teams were keeping in touch with each other throughout the morning's play. After 58 ends, the scores were tied on the big board at 52-all. Dundas came up with some thing special, taking a 7 on the last end on one rink to take the win 65-56.
In the grand final, NBC Sports and Dundas were going shot for shot through to the midpoint of the game. Indeed, after 29 ends the score on the big board was 28-27. However, over the next ten ends, NBC Sports put their foot down, motoring to a 44-30 lead after 40 ends. This pace continued over the next ten ends before Dundas Sports came back with a vengeance, closing to within eight after trailing by 19 at one point. NBC Sports won 70-62 and will now represent Zone 10 at the State Finals to be held at Engadine and Taren Point.
Thank you to Michael Schwarcz, Steve Arnold, Dallas Palm, Bob Cole and Dom Surace for organising and officiating.
