Round 4 (24/1/2015) Report – South Tweed Sharks v. Bramble Bay Vikings

The Bramble Bay Vikings raided south to take on the South Tweed Sharks. This was a must win game for the Sharks Premier team as they were on the bottom of the Premier League table, a position the 2014 Premiers had not anticipated. The Sharks did not disappoint playing to their potential with a dominating win. Go the Sharks!

Premier Grade

South Tweed Sharks 76 d.  Bramble Bay Vikings 32   2 ½ rinks to ½ rink

·        Kelvin Kerkow 30 d. Michael Brown 6

·        Steve Glasson 29 d.  Harley McDonald 9

·        N. Jenkins 17 drew Aaron Teys 17

Steve Glasson had a good win over Harley McDonald with Hec Beswick back to his best as lead, setting up the rest of the rink of Phil Brandon, Braiden Leese  and Steve Glasson who all played solid games.

Kelvin Kerkow had a strong win over the very experienced Michael Brown. Dan Smith, leading for Kelvin for the first time, had a very solid game. This allowed, John Bain playing his first game for the Sharks, to have a blinder. Dean McWhinney, at third, played a good game to winning heads most ends. Kelvin was at home on the indoor surface, consequently the big win.

In the other game Peter Richards, Dean Smith, Nigel Smith and Neville Jenkins fought out a draw with young Vikings skip Aaron Teys, who was the best player on the rink.

It seems as though the return to the combinations that have been successful for the Sharks in the past, was the key to their win. 

A Grade

South Tweed Sharks 74 drew with Bramble Bay Vikings 74               2 ½ rinks to 1 ½ rinks

·        Wayne Wilson 15 drew Alan Patch 15          

·        Ray Hickman 23 d. Russell Morris 9

·        Laurie Sylvester 13 lost to Esther Reagan 34

·        Matt Norris 23 d. Jason Curry 16

Wayne Wilson’s team of Sally Hickman, Alan Smith and Jim Chapman were behind all match but never gave up gaining a draw on the last end against Allan Patch’s Vikings team.

Sharks Matt Norris, promoted to skip for this game, led his team of Dale McWhinney Shillington, Lou Beckman and Dave Bennett to a solid win by 7 shots. Lead, second and third for this team all drew well on the indoor surface, setting up the win.

The Vikings team of the consistent Mr Chook, Peter Buckman, Ron Bol and brilliant skip Esther Reagan had a devastating win over Laurie Sylvester’s Sharks team 34-13. Esther had a stellar night at skip, regularly changing the head and gaining shots. On the last end against Sylvester, with her last bowl, Esther’s accurate drive removed the two Sharks shots and gained a three – the Vikings were in front 74-73 and an upset looked possible. Again for the second time this season, what seemed to be a likely overall victory for the Sharks, was not to be. The result was dependent on the last end of the Ray Hickman versus Russell Morris game.  

Ray Hickman’s team of Alan Fawcett, Kevin Wormald and Kim Mitchell all played consistently, as did the opposition team of W. Brown, D. Coward, J. Mitchell and R. Morris. But Hickman was the difference and at his best on the indoor green. His team led 14- 1 after the 10th end and won convincingly 23-9. Hickman’s team held onto 1 shot on the very last end of the match to deprive the Vikings victory. It was no surprise that this winning shot was Al Fawcett’s bowl. Alan has to be one of the best leads in the competition. The Sharks had to be content with a 74 all draw.
