Well done Ray & Rich!

Congratulations to Raymond Martin (lead) and Richard Corry (2nd) who teamed up with Mark Jacombs (3rd from Vogelmorn) and Marcus Trlin (skip from Waiwhetu Catholic) to win the Hutt Valley Open Fours indoor bowls event last weekend. They beat Trevor Gould (Upper Hutt) in a tense final with scores tied on the 6th and 8th ends of the 10 end match. They picked up a three on the 9th end and Trevor killed the last to make it a 14-8 scoreline. This was Ray’s 2nd Hutt Valley title, and Rich’s 1st. Unbelievably, this was Richard’s first Centre title in the 27 years he has played indoor bowls – three years after winning a national title…

Ray (lead) and Rich (skip) teamed up again in the Regional play-offs for the NZ Mixed Fours indoor bowls today also at the Hutt Club with Kay Carr (2nd) and Denise Clarkson (3rd from Vogelmorn) to fall a couple of inches short of winning the zone playoffs in their final match against Horowhenua. Both teams had already beaten Upper Hutt and North Wellington, and went into the final end locked at 8-8. Unfortunately the last end was not a great one with Rich needing to dead-draw the jack while 5 down on the head and could not quite achieve that.
