Auas Derby

January 2011

The first leg of the Annual Derby against our Auas Road neighbours, Eros Bowling Club, took place on Sunday morning, 30th January. The Blues were out in numbers, with even the opposition complementing our new uniform.

The Men's Team were down 5-14, but managed to step up a gear and turned the table to win the game by 8 shots.
It's a head scratch for our selectors as the highly favoured Ladies Team went down by 6 shots.
With four ends to go the Mixed ‘A’ side had a lead of 8 shots, but let slip and went on to peel the game 19-19.
After holding the lead for most of their game the Mixed ‘B’ side found themselves going down by the narrowest of margins, a single shot.

The Reserves teamed up with their Eros counterparts for two games:

In the Reserve's Mixed Pairs game we went down 7-17, while the fours game was a much tighter affair with our Reserves ‘A’ team beating our Reserves ‘B’ team 20-16.

There's not much in it and hopefully we'll make amends when we host the return leg on 29th October.
