Central wins in Kihikihi

A Cambridge Central combination won a successful tournament at Kihikihi last week.

Skip Laurie Roycroft, with Ron Greenwood and Dennis Wilcock , secured first prize with four wins, 22 ends and 49 points.

They headed off Matamata’s Rita Donderwinkel (skip), Phil Crawford and Linda Ata who also recorded four wins and 22 ends – but with 44 were outpointed.

Both Kihikihi Bowling Club greens were fully utilised with 28 teams competing from 11 Waikato clubs on a beautiful clear autumn day.

The venue with its carpet greens and good organisation has earned considerable popularity among the bowling community of the Waikato.

The best of the three winners, of which there were five teams, was another Cambridge Central team skipped by Bruce Sagers, with Sue Broadbent and Steve Davison. They headed of a Kihikihi combination of Lyn Comins (Skip), Sharon Sincock and Cheryl Froggatt by winning three more ends.

The winning team, pictured with club president Dave Barnett was Laurie Roycroft, Dennis Wilcock and Ron Greenwood.
