CHALLENGER LEAGUE REPORT WEEK 4.
With everyone’s favourite Banger!!
Scottsdale fall in a tight one to the Point, East find form on the 300 year old synthetic green,
Longford in a canter over Cressy, Meadows upset Deloraine & Trevallyn too good for LBC.
Bowls the all-weather game loved by us all…….well most of us!!
LONGFORD TIGERS 80 D CRESSY HOTDOGS 56
Junior Cock 28 d Kev Blood 18
Zappasnozzieadoodle 31 d New Bowls but for how long Wilson 9
McKay 21 lt Conditions are Mine Flood 29
In conditions as cold as a polar bear turd the Cressy hotdogs took the long and tiring bus
journey all the way to Longford to cop a right royal country style arse hammering. Team
Snappasnuffazozzalick led the charge for the home side handing Ricky I have Aero
Dynamically challenged bowls Wilson a 30-9 thumping that not even some bullshit baffling
from Nev “knock me up” Goss could stop. The display from team Cockroach Junior was just
as mouth wateringly exciting smashing Kevin “Where's my old bowls?” Wilson 26-14. The
final points on offer were stolen from Freddy flippin mat tossin dummy spittin McKay by a
fired up Flood and Jak “I'm the only in form Wilson” at cressy 21-29.
EAST EAGLES 87 d NORTH DEFENDING CHAMPS 54
EVERYONE’S IDOL DUDMAN 32 d SPARKYMAN BAKER 13
MILLION CALLS SPRINGER 24 d CHASE EM TOE MINNS 23
BLACK CAV SUMMERS 31 d SKUNKMAN HOWARD 18
Wow wee the plastic got a run for the first time in the last ‘almost’ decade and Duddy has
decided that he now will become a professional as he managed to draw them on a
thruppence in his match with Sparky Baker. BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE… he even managed 2
smiles during the course of the game when his concentration broke for a split
second….simply inspiring is this great man. Cactus Lane simply superb here for the Eagles
with one bowl always on and the other behind in a great leads display. Rube also solid in this
one and some other tool mixing them up from end to end as only he can.
The Cav had the luxury of not being overly required here, ‘personally I have found him that
way for 20 years now’ as Cobbs Barrett showed one and all why he is so highly regarded by
all that know him well giving a master class in draw & plonk draw bowling…simply
sensational Cobbs. ‘JB closet Magpie Supporter’ also showed how he loves any synthetic
surface continually drawing the shot whenever his team in trouble in his best game for the
Wilbur and Minnsy went chase to toe in this one from start to go…… I wondered if someone
has actually been shot over there at one stage with all the “BANG” “BANG” “BANGING” that
was being hollered from their direction but alas it was not to be it was them both on the
chase with Wilbur clocking 2.35 seconds for the 25 metre journey only to be outdone by the
Toe at 2.29. Trouble stemmed with Minnsy struggling to pull up though and crashing
through the first 2 rows of the large crowd that had gathered for this big clash. Rogan Pip on
fire leading for Wilbur and showing one and all the undoubted potential this little fella has.
Sambo solid at 2, and Zoony with a free flowing surface showed the faster they run the
better he plays.
Great win for East but nothing is won for real in November.
TREVALLYN THUNDER 92 d L.B.C FRIENDLIES 54
AUSSIE MIKE 33 d DONOHUE OF THE NON-DELORAINE VARIETY 10
BOUNCE PATTERSON 28 d STEADY AS SHE GOES BILLING 24
HOWLING GALE HOWLETT 31 d YOUR SHOUT McLEAN 20
Bounce Patterson and crew found Roly Bowls tough to get over, loves the trundle does the
Invermay machine and had Patto worrying for most of the day but between Bryce 'look at
the wind take that one' Weaver and ‘I have 2 years’ worth of speaking to catch up on’
Groves the Thunder boys managed to do enough for the 2 points. Seaton was very good
when in trouble and Bounce Bounce CA BLIMMIN BOOM clearly enjoys playing in warmer
Howly and men 9-0 down in this one before Legman sims and Bucky Buchanan decided it
was time to start setting the perfect heads up. Let’s face it we all play better with wellconstructed
heads. This seemed to bring on the Cassman and Howly to produce maximum
results and cherries for all. Bucky the best here even without ‘good bowl sweetie’ from the
sidelines still restricting his concentration ability.
Aussie Mike makes the statement of the week ‘I will never give up Noof as MY lead’, so the
Noofman clearly on fire here and making life easy for the Dougall dick and with Vidor ‘yes I
have found somewhere to play’ Murray a complete luxury at 3 adding as he saw fit and
showing he has lost none of his ability even after a large break than most. Very rarely
crossed over down did the Aus and generally on the odd occasion they were he managed to
pull one from his back passage to recover the situation.
All in all a good day for the Thunder and full credit to LBC for agreeing to move their game
to an alternative venue after leaving their sprinklers on high for 2 days.
DELORAINE PIGEONS 67 lt KINGS MEADOWS TRUE BLUES 77
DRAWING MACHINE MITCHELL 16 lt ANY CONDITIONS BAIRD 29
PIGEON DONOHUE 23 lt KIWI HEMINGWAY 25
DRIVING MACHINE MITCHELL 28 d ROLF HARRIS 23
No report given here either but I know there was one man that simply loves playing the
game and that shone through on the scoreboard with the veteran Doc Baird on fire in this
one. Chasing bowls at will to stop his aggots from freezing and creating a crater in the Del
City Surface. What a thoughtful character this man truly is.
SCOTTSDALE SPUDDIES 64 lt BEAUTY POINT MIDGIES 68
CHURCHILL 18 lt STAND UP BRUCEY HOWARD 19
I HATE BUDDY GOSS 24 lt HARD AS AN ACHRE 26
BENNO 22 lt PAULY 23
No report given but clearly a tight knit affair in the Spud Country.
That’s it for this week fans.
Until you read more rubbish next week tis the Banger signing off with….
THERE IS ONLY 1 AND I AM IT.
