It was certainly the middle of winter at the Bowral Bowling Club last Saturday with the temperature hovering around five degrees.
Carl Spilker, Glen Giese, Brian Porter, Gordon Lewis def. Keith Edwards, Terry Norwood, Alex K, Greg Lewis 16-15
This was a very low scoring match with plenty of highlights.
Team Gordon held a 3-2 lead after four ends but on the next end Team Greg picked up five shots for a 7-3 lead.
Considering the weather conditions all players did well to play in-form and at the halfway mark Team Greg had a 9-7 lead.
With some very tight heads in the second half of the match, Team Greg started to get the upper hand and held a 15-11 lead with two ends to play.
On the 20th end the match took a dramatic turn when Team Gordon picked up four shots to have the game level, 15-15.
On the last end Team Gordon had a bowl sitting right on the jack and that is where it stayed giving them a one-shot win.
Fingers crossed we will see all players back on the green this week and not battling the flu.
