Men?s fours final goes down to the wire



SO close was the final of the Park Beach Bowling Club men's fours on Saturday, just 25 shots were scored in 21 ends.

Club spokesperson Vic Watkins said it was rare to have two teams so evenly matched in ability.

"Only one 'three' and a single 'two' was scored," Watkins said with amazement.

In the final wash-up Keith Scullin, Glen Terey, Denis Brown and Don Wood prevailed 15-10 over Neil Chittick, Bob Bain, Phil Toy and Ric Southam.

"The Wood team sped away to lead 9-1 after nine ends before the fightback started," Watkins said.

Southam and crew got to three shots behind by the end of the 17th before the eventual winner's found a second wind.

With shots at a premium, Wood's team hung on grimly, winning three of the last four ends to just survive.

"Ric and his boys would have had a fairly quiet night," Watkins said. "Gee, they came close."
