THE success of the ladies at Windsor Bowling Club continues apace as the Penylan team found to their cost. With Carole Lewis, Mags Coughlan, Brenda Dunlop and skip in form Moyra Owen winning 20 shots to 13. Bernice Roberts, Veronica Flitney, Di Roper and Mary Berry look-a-like Diane Thomas also victorious by 20 shots to 16. A full house of 10 points was achieved.
The gentlemen’s PG2 team lost a close match against Pontyclun by just four shots. The ever youthful rink of Austen Meredith, Alf Holmes, David Hales and skip John Hardess ran out winners by four shots and Ian Mathias, John Armstrong, Alan Dudley and badger Lloyd-Jones hanging on to a one shot win. These two victories were not sufficient as the fours of Mike Fullbrook and Ken Trenchard both found themselves defeated.
The Munro Cup match against local rivals and friends Penarth Rectory Road provided the highlight of the week on a somewhat below par green. With the home side unbeaten and Windsor having lost just one game there was all to play for and a close encounter was expected. The fact was that Windsor were denied a clean sweep on all four rinks by the very last shot of the match.
The vastly experienced rink of Ken McLeod led the way but thrashing the Rectory’s David Dalby four by 28 shots to 8. Another Tony Holmes master class of skipping encouraged his rink to outscore Dave Clements and his side by 20 shots to 12.
The Windsor captain and his henchman minder Artie Woodcock fought like tigers to secure a one shot win, this as a titanic battle took place on the fourth rink between the rinks of Windsor’s Matthew Woodcock and Nick Chandler. With the two opponents sharing nine winning end apiece. The result went down to the very last wood of the game where not for the first time being a number of shots down the mercurial Nick saved the day and the white wash, the many Rectory supporters were rightly ecstatic.
