Appleby’s team wins home pennant

WINNERS: The winning team of the home pennant series for 2014-15 were (from left) Tom Nicols, Belinda Snider, Val Todd and skip Bob Appleby.

HOME pennant at the Mansfield Bowls Club came to a thrilling climax last Tuesday when the final two teams played off in the final.

Top of the ladder for the majority of the season was the blue team of Ellen Sheehan, Bonnie Purcell, Fritz Hylla and Pam Zierk-Mahoney who came up against that of club captain Bob Appleby, Tom Nicols, Belinda Snider and Val Todd.

Appleby’s team started off winning the first and second ends but then a comeback from Sheehan’s team had spectators watching closely.

The game tossed and turned with each end until the 19th which saw the Appleby team ahead by just one shot.

At one stage it looked like being a drawn game but then some top bowls by Appleby’s team saw them take the premiership by just two shots, but only after a good fight from the Sheehan team.

Well done to all who played off in the semi-finals and the final.
