Auas Derby 2010

January 2010

Windhoek Country Club does it again!

We arrived at Eros Bowling Club on Sunday 31st January for the second and final leg of the Derby. With a rather slender lead after the first leg, we had to win at least 2 of the four games being played to be sure of retaining the trophy.

In a complete reversal of the first leg game our Ladies team struggled from the outset eventually going down 11-22.

The Men’s team on the other hand were quick to stamp their authority and by the ninth end had built up a seven shot lead which they never let slip. The final score was 17-11.

The Mixed 1 side were up against a reshuffled opposition and after narrowly losing in the first leg they had it all to play for. Our team was trailing up until the 13th end, but a solid performance in the final 5 ends had a much elated WCC side snatch victory. The final score was 18-13.

Our Mixed 2 side took an early 11 shot lead in their game, but a determined opposition saw them enter the final end with that lead whittled down to 3 shots. In a nail biting finish the opposition picked up four shots in the last end. The final score was 17-18.

The final standings at the end of the Derby were:

Points: WCC 4.5 – Eros 3.5

Shots: WCC 136 – Eros 122

Well-done to everyone on winning the trophy for an unprecedented 7th time!
