Canberra Bowling Club would like to congratulate 👏 all our Pennant participants last weekend as all four teams gave it their best shot in stunning conditions at the SnakePit 🐍. And we extend our gratitude to the four visiting teams with all games played in positive BACT spirit 👍

The ruthless Cobra 1s 🐍 again took the points – this week 10-2 (63-51) over the Tuggernanong Vikings – but it was a brutal battle filled with strategic heads (on the rink and above the shoulders). The win was set up by Jimmy ‘the maestro’ Smith and his rink of Lawson, Daddow and Dowsett who led the way with a solid 12 shot victory, while the rink led by Matt ‘the magician’ Sargeant also got over the line by a couple of shots 🤙. In the final rink we’re crushed we couldn’t get over the line for our recruit ‘Hollywood’ Todd Trewarne, but the rink went down valiantly, not comically, to the Benny Hill led Viking rink by 2 shots.

The ‘Strike Hard’ Cobra 2s also went about their business with cold-blooded efficiency, taking care of visiting Canberra North 12-0 (60-40) 💥. All three rinks got up with a last shot bomb 💣 from Matt ‘golden’ Styles ensuring a one-shot victory on the final rink. The other two rinks had comfortable victories, led by the steady hand of the vastly underrated Dave Lindbeck (9 shots) and Cobra veteran sporting all-rounder ‘King’ Charles Smith (12 shots).

Keeping the narrative going up, div5 continued on their winning way 10-2 (74-54) over Weston Creek 🤩. The hard-nosed rink of Bourke, Carters and Proctor and Skip Cameron ‘uber’ O’Brien led the way with a crushing 35-11 landslide, while the ‘Kenny D’ rink picked up a last end 5 to grab the two-points by 4 shots. The final rink went down by 8 but battled hard to ensure a comfortable overall ‘big board’ victory.
Finally, the super 6ers battled hard but were outshone by 0-12 (41-68) by the visiting Tuggeranong Vikings. There are a few new faces in the 6s and will take a little while to gel, but it’s all upward trajectory for this quiver of Cobras 🐍.
