Thank goodness for a (relatively) dry afternoon for the final round of action in this year's Zone 9 Midweek Challenge.
The highlight came in Grade C where the top two sides in their section- St Ives and Turramurra- met on our home green. On the big board St Ives scraped home 56-52 but that became a decisive 5 1/2- 1/2 point win on the ladder. Despite an impressive 6-0 win by Warrawee over Asquith, St Ives were first on the ladder and move forward into the post-sectional round next week. The other section winners in Grade C are Lindfield (1), Pittwater Memorial and Belrose.
In Grade A St Ives' last match was away to the ladder-topping Harbord side. The result was a creditable 50-61 loss (1 pt to 5).
The Grade B side ran into something of a hurricane at Turramurra, losing heavily 53-107 (0 pts to 6). Also at Turramurra, the Grade D side had rather better fortune notching up a nice 75-38 win (6 pts to 0).
The summary of our Midweek Challenge results are as follows:-
