The pattern of St Ives' 2019 Pennants season was seen again in Round 5: strong performances on our own green but disappointment when playing away from home.
The two home fixtures this week both resulted in 10-0 wins for St Ives. In Grade 3, St Ives won 72-45 over Avalon. That leaves St Ives one win behind the joint leaders: Manly & Asquith. In Grade 6, the #1 side had an excellent 74-44 win over Warrawee. The 6 (1)s remain one win behind the unbeaten Belrose.
Away from our green, the Grade 4 side fell to a disappointing & close loss to Chatswood 52-56 (2 pts to 8). St Ives now slip into second place, one win back from Asquith. Our Grade 6 (2) side went down to the unbeaten Harbord side 49-65 (1 pt to 9).
