Toukley RSL Bowling Club has crowned its Men’s 2019 Triples Champions after an exciting final.
The team of Steve Chappell, Ken Piper and Mal Fowler defeated the team of Mick Waddington, Mick Lynch and Ted Heath, 21 to 13.
“True to form, the heavens opened up the night before and the green was saturated, reducing the speed to between 13 and 14 seconds, which was an upset in itself after our greens had been running perfectly up until then,” said Club Publicity Officer, Ian Garling.
“A strong southerly wind which kept swinging to the east also made bowling difficult.
“Still the game was an exciting one to watch, as the teams stayed within touch throughout most of the first half, but slowly, Mal Fowler’s team drew ahead.
“Mal Fowler’s team reached the final by defeating the team of, Franco Mastroianni, Dave Harman and Grant Wyatt 23 to 22 in the semi-final.
“Likewise, Ted Heath’s team defeated, Alf Schembri, Doug Ellery and John Sharp, 28 to 12, in the other semi,” Garling said.
