After a string of good results Dylan Riley’s efforts have been rewarded when the State Selectors have added his name to the State Squad.
His first contact will be at a State training camp at Cabramatta next week. Congratulations Dylan and good luck.
After wins over Damien Miller (Young), Aaron Sheriff (Ettalong) and Gerard Beath (Cowra) Dylan then came up against current State skip David Ferguson (Engadine) in the final. In a titanic struggle where the scores were locked at 13-13, 14-14, 16-16, 25-25 and 29-29, Dylan was gallant in defeat eventually going down 31-29. Congratulations Dylan on a superb effort.
Congratulations to the Taree West duo of Mal Drury and Errol Ruprecht who have been crowned State Senior Pairs Champions. They began their campaign with a 28-12 win over Warilla and then defeated Terrigal 21-16. The semi-final saw them account for Moruya 19-13. In the final against Cowra they were never headed, and after establishing a huge 27-6 lead the opposition conceded after 17 ends.
In the Open Pairs Steve Harris and Matt Sargeant were defeated 21-17 in the first round.
In the Open Singles Matt Sargeant was defeated by the narrowest of margins 31-30, and in the Senior Singles Errol Ruprecht could not repeat his performance of the previous day and was defeated in the first game.
Out of the eight events contested our Zone had one winner and three semi-finalists, which could be considered a pretty good result.
Our triples representatives of Dave Richardson, Steve Harris and Matt Sargeant (Tuncurry Beach) started out with 28-14 win over the strong Merrylands team and followed up with a close 20-18 win over another strong team from Engadine. Unfortunately their run came to an end in the semi-final losing to Port City on an extra end.
In the Presidents Reserve Singles Mark O’Neill (Lansdowne) began with a very strong 31-9 win over Beresfield and a much closer 31-27 win over Walcha. Again Mark’s run was over in the semi-final falling to Ryde X Phoenix 12-31.
