End of Pennant Season

This season, we finished with three sides – 2 from Weekend Pennant and 1 side from Midweek Pennant playing finals – and all earning home finals at that. There have been some outstanding performances from those sides.

Disappointing of course has been the Weekend Pennant No 1 side in Rosanna’s first appearance in Division 1 after 27 years. The difference in standards from Division 2 and the increased pressure became obvious as the season progressed. Nevertheless it has been a real learning experience and they will be back!!

Here is a summary of where the sides finished in Weekend Pennant 2020-21 season.

Well done to the No 2 and 3 sides who both earned home finals and were favourites to win in their section semi-finals on the Saturday. They didn’t disappoint.

However, The undefeated No 2 side had a big fright playing against 4th side Kingsbury – down all day and hit the front only in the 77th end, to win by 8 shots. But as they say, a win’s a win!!. The No 3 side showed their class with a 17-shot win against Donvale. Here is the best winning rink for the Saturday semi-finals –

The winners on Saturday were required to front up again on Sunday which unfortunately was wet and miserable. Both Rosanna’s sides were drawn to play on synthetic greens – No 2 at Rosamond and No 3 at Vermont South.

Rosanna’s No 3 side proved no match for Doncaster in the wet conditions and were well beaten. Once again, Glenn Lyons’ rink was the best with a 11-11 draw.

It was a different story at Rosamond BC, with our all-conquering No 2 side (unbeaten this season) too strong for Moonee Ponds. The best winning rink was skipped by Don Casey, with Damian Crea, Kay Plain and Gwenda Bail. They notched up a 15-shot win – and the drink vouchers.

A pleasing number of players came back to the Club to congratulate the winners. President John Head was obviously delighted. The win by the No 2 side means a promotion to Division 3 next season, which was always the objective.
