to play. Led by Mal Smiths rink who were trailing 3-18 after
12 ends they surged home picked up valuable shots in the
last 8 ends to end up a draw. A similar tale was seen on Don
Lemins rink, trailing 15-17 after 20 ends they picked up 8
shots over the last 5 ends to win by 6 shots.
Unfortunately, the other two rinks couldnt complete the
same fightback, losing by three shots and 14 shots.
The loss finishes the season for this division, and despite the
result their season can be regarded as successful.
Final score Avenue 84 lost Clunes 95. Alex Lloyd State Bronze Medallist. William Lalor State Silver Medallist.
