Midweek pennant results at Mathoura last week saw the home side lose to Moama by two points in the top flight.

The 62-64 result led into the weekend in division one where City of Echuca came to play at Mathoura and defeated the hosts 90-43.

Division two suffered the same treatment as Echuca walked over the hosts, 94-55.

In division four however, the tune changed and Mathoura collected a win.

The 82-52 was the only win of the weekend pennant for the club.

Division one went down to Moama 57-75 with Robert Taylor’s rink winning 23-20. Division two lowered their colours going down to Moama 54 to 86, so hopefully they bounce back this week.

City of Echuca

Congratulations to the Echuca Blue division one pennant team, who recorded a strong win against Rochester in Friday’s round of mid-week pennant.

The team remained competitive all season, and this win was a great reward for their commitment to the pennant competition.

The side defeated Rochester by 20 shots with two rink wins and a narrow loss. Sandra Glasser, Helen Pitts, Marie Malone and Ros Neil won their game by 11 shots, as did Marg Shearer, Ellie McGowan, Chris Egan and Ann Vanderkley.

The Echuca White team had a tough battle against Moama and although the Echuca side was in the game at the break, the second half saw the visiting team finish stronger to record another victory.

Roma Opie, Lee Beattie, Pat Schram and Jan Palmer combined well to win their game by 12 shots. The division three side also competed against Moama and led their opposition all day.

Although the Moama side finished strongly, the Echuca team held on to win by nine shots, with both rinks recording wins.

The division one weekend team travelled to Mathoura and finished with a strong 47-shot victory. All three teams combined well and all recorded good wins.

Division two also played against Mathoura at home, and recorded a 39-shot win, with three winning rinks. John Brown, Ian Whiting, Lal Whyte and Bill Toll finished their day with a 22-shot win.

The division three side had a close match against Moama which came down to the final end with the Echuca side holding on to win by a single shot.

All three games in this match were close, with Echuca finishing with one win, and a tied game.

Division four also travelled to Mathoura and had a difficult day, eventually losing with only one rink win. Cec Moss and his team won their game by three shots.

The division five side had an impressive 50-shot win up at Deniliquin. Col Walker, John Simpson, Trevor Rickard and John Kelly won their game by 30 shots, and Pat Schram, Bluey Charman, John Cowan and Belinda Chong won their game by 20.
