Statewide Challenge

BOWLS NORTH STATEWIDE CHALLENGE ROUND 3 REPORT (Report by Madge Strochnetter & David Heron)

The Northern Women’s & Men’s sides travelled down South to Claremont Bowls Club and we were pleased to find the Claremont greens running free and the weather conditions were perfect. Both the Men’s & Women’s side was in an extraordinarily strong position in the Statewide Challenge Series titles for 2020-21.

WOMEN’S REPORT:

The Open Women’s side played South 2 in the morning round. A nice display of bowling was exhibited by all our ladies.

The rink led by Rae Simpson took control of the game from the onset and came out winners 29 to 10. Kim Saunders rink had a good tussle then took charge midway through and come out winners 17 to 9 win. Rebecca Van Asch led her rink through a tight game to only go down by 1 shot, 16 to 17. A successful morning for our ladies gaining 10 points.

In the afternoon round against the South’s number one side, Rae’s rink was on fire again with a commanding display of bowling to finish with a 24 to 10 win. Rebecca’s rink had an even start with their opponents and from about the 8th end took over the game to have a 22 to 11 win. Kim Saunders rink had a close game for the entire time finishing 16 all after 17 ends. With some exceptionally good bowls by all players, they managed to score 3 shots to give them the victory.

A fantastic day by all the team, with bringing home the shield as overall winners of the Women’s Statewide open series. All were immensely proud of their achievement, not forgetting the contributions made by who were unavailable for Round 3 but played in the previous 2 rounds.

I am sure that all our Northern bowlers are feeling proud of their team. We are also so proud of our Men’s side who also put on a great exhibition of bowling, reaping good results as well, as you will see from the Men’s report.

We are all looking forward to next year’s events.

MEN’S REPORT:

An extraordinarily strong performance was displayed by our players against a particularly good Southern number 2 side in the morning match.

NORTH 63 def SOUTH 2 44
J Appleyard 14 lt G Wakefield 18
M Sims 32 def J Fowler 10
M Strochnetter 17 def A Norris 16

This was a strong performance by our players against a particularly good number 2 Southern side. Michael Sims rink was always in control creating pressure end after end and recorded a couple of big scores on their way to a convincing win. Mark Strochnetter’s rink led throughout and withstood a late challenge to record another solid win.

Our players all performed well and consistently created chances. Josh Appleyard’s rink encountered strong opposition throughout with the Southern Skipper pulling off some big saves at times when we looked to be getting on top.

The overall win ensured that we could not lose the Shield, and this took the pressure of our players as we faced up to the top Southern side in the afternoon round.

NORTH 62 def SOUTH 48
J Appleyard 11 lt N Curto 27
M Sims 22 def P Bannister 12
M Strochnetter 29 def W Coad 9

This was a terrific effort from our players given that we had already won the title, but the team desire was to finish off the series in style leaving no doubt as to who the best side was. Josh Appleyard faced a Southern rink that got away to a flyer and full credit must be given to this Southern rink that played very well all game.

Mark Strochnetter’s rink recorded an all the way win to complete a big day for this rink and also a great overall series. Michael Sim’s rink recorded his second big win for the day to complete a terrific series as well.

The Bowls North Open Men’s selectors, Chris Lee, Graeme Burnie, and David Heron would like to congratulate all player’s who represented the North in this series for their professionalism, attendance at the practice sessions and their gameday attitude and preparation. There are nay highlights including a top win by our Number 2 side over the South which lifted everyone.

The rinks gelled well together and there was a noticeable team spirit amongst the players. We are proud of everyone’s performances and we should achieve a strong representation in the State side.

We look forward to next year and the opportunity to defend our title and keep the North as the top region in Tasmanian Bowls.

OPEN STATEWIDE CHALLENGE – ROUND 2 21 FEBRUARY 2021

Reports by David Heron BN Open Selector & Madge Strochnetter BN Women’s Bowls Director.

48 men & women from the Bowls North region took to the free running greens at North Launceston for Round 2 of Bowls Tasmania Open Statewide Challenge Series that was a pleasure for the players to play on.

MEN’S RESULTS:

Morning round:

Our number 1 side performed very solidly to record pleasing win against an exceptionally good North West side. WE started well which has been a recent issue for us and we maintained a good margin throughout the match to always be in control. The even contribution from all our players meant that the pressure was always on our opposition.

Our number 2 side provided the morning shock with a stunning win over the Southern side who was on the top of the table after Round 1 matches in Burnie. Gene’s Ayton rink won 5 of the last 6 ends to give our other rinks an opportunity to pull off an upset. We were proud to see so many players put their hand up to challenge the best player’s in the state and pull off a huge upset.

AFTERNOON ROUND:

Our number 1 side got off to another great start leading by 15 early before the inevitable Southern challenge came. They evened the scores up before we rallied to record another solid win.

Mark Strochnetter and Michael Sims’s rink both had 2 top wins for the day and Josh Appleyard’s rink won their second game and would have gained a lot from the day.

Our number 2 side performed well against the North West side. There was never more than 10 shots margin in the game, but we could not string together the ends to get closer on the score board. The Bowls North Open selectors were immensely proud of the efforts of this side with four debutants players and other players being given the opportunity to see how they matched up against the best from other regions. Kane Walker’s won both games and a number of players produced encouraging performances that indicated they can play at this level.

WOMEN’S

The Ladies 1 Northern team had a very satisfying day with 2 rink wins and overall, in both the morning games against the North West Coast team, and again in the afternoon against the Southern team, giving them a total of 20 from a possible 24 points. They played extremely well as a team in very warm summery conditions at North Launceston Bowls Club.

The Northern number 2 side had some tight games against the Southern side in the morning with one rink managing to secure a draw. This was a great effort displayed by all the players who participated.

In the afternoon against the North West Coast, one rink had a delightful 20 shot win which gave them the overall points. The Bowls North 2 side had a nice mixture of experienced players, mixed with youth to give a creditable performance on the day.

A strong overall performance by all 24 players produced a total of 29 points for the North on the day.

I am sure all our Northern bowlers were feeling proud of our ladies with represented them.

BOWLS NORTH SENIOR STATEWIDE CHALLENGE ROUND 2 REPORT

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bowls North was the host region for Round 2 of Bowls Tasmania Senior Statewide Challenge which was held on Tuesday 2nd February at kings Meadows Bowls Club. Being that Bowls North was the host region for this round, Bowls North fielded two sides in the Men’s & Women’s disciplines, and it was a great sight to see all the teams on the green decked out in the new Bowls North Representative sides playing uniforms.

In the morning games, Bowls North had a mixed bag of results across the rinks but after the luncheon break things changed for Bowls North sides, kicking into another gear and several games came down to the last bowl to see who won the match.

OPEN STATEWIDE CHALLENGE REPORT 2021 – Round 1

In the first round of the Open SWC, the women’s side put in a good performance in very trying, freezing cold and extremely windy conditions on a slowish green.

The Open women’s side played North West 1 in the morning game, C Ayton’s rink got off to a flying start and finished strongly winning by 18 shots. R Van Asch rink got off to a slow start but slowly pulled it back to only go down by 4 shots. C Hobb’s rink came up against a determined North West team, they put in a good effort, going down by 21 shots.

In the afternoon games against North West B, C Hobb’s rinks regrouped and jumped out of the box early and kept the pressure on finishing 14 shots up on their opponents.  R Van Asch Rink also applied early pressure to finish 21 shots up. C Ayton’s rink had a much tighter match and won by 5 shots.

A great strong team effort by all our Ladies today in some very difficult conditions.

How often do you see players drinking coffee and hot chocolate all day to try to keep warm so they could perform to their best ability.

Our Northern Men played the North West 1 side in the morning game. The North ended up winning by 2 shots overall with the results being:

M Sims defeated T Male 19-12

M Strochnetter defeated M Nitz 18-14

A Page was defeated by D Gamble 15-24

This was an exceptionally good effort from our players with a feature being the comeback of A Page’s rink who were well down early with the North West rink on fire but managed to close the gap to give our other rinks a chance to win overall.

M Strochnetter rink did very well against State Skip M Nitz and M Sim’s rink was left on the green with two ends to play and scored a two, then one to get us home – A great effort.

In the afternoon game, we played the North West number 2 side which contained a number of former state representatives & players who could easily have been in their number 1 side. It was hard to believe the conditions could be even windier than they were in the morning, but they were, making it difficult for players to put down two bowls the same.

The North lost by 2 shots overall with the results being:

M Sims was defeated by T Simpson 16-22.

M Strochnetter defeated C Windram 26-13.

A Page was defeated by Brown 9-18.

We unfortunately got away to a slow start again with the North West team adjusting to the tricky conditions better than us. We were probably a dozen or so shots behind for the majority of the game but again staged a late comeback & were in a position to win the game in the last few ends, but the North West steadied & fully deserved their win.
