Our Grade 7 pennant team was the only club success in yesterday's round 7 of this year's men's pennant season. Currently leading their section, the 7s were playing away at Killara and after ending the day with a 2 rink to 1 win they have now extended their lead to more than a games' win in front of their chasers. Bob Balmer's team continued their good season's form and racked up a very good win and Chis Sterling's foursome came home with a flurry of shots to overcome their opponent in the last 5 or 6 ends. It was an impressive performance by our 7s in what was generally a disappointing day for the club in other grades.
Important player absences in the 2s saw a number of strategic selections made and the team performed admirably in going down at Asquith by a total of 11 shots. Unfortunately our 4s also went down by 11 shots to Belrose away and the 6s, who had been leading the comp before today's round were outclassed by Chatswood at home by 14 shots in a 2 rink to 1 loss.
With only 3 rounds to play our selectors have asked all members in all grades to update the pennant availability sheet and to do all possible to be available for selection for the remaining rounds.
