Partnership pays off for Sawtell duo
By CORY DALEY
GEOFF Peake and Noel Stahlut have a busy few weeks ahead of them as they look to clean sweep the Sawtell club major championships.
Having teamed together last year after Geoff joined the club from Coffs Ex-Services, the pair have really found their range this season reaching the finals of the club major pairs, triples and fours.
Both are also still alive in the major singles event as well which is at the quarter-final stage.
In the pairs final the duo will take on the strong pairing of Nigel Lamond and Paul Parramore.
Teaming with Neil Davidson, the pair will contest the triples against Anthony Clarke, Denis Scott and Peter Clarke. Denis Scott and Anthony Clarke could also be their nemesis in the fours final teaming with Des Hickey and Nigel Lamond.
Geoff and Noel have teamed with Bill Meadows and John McFayden in their quest for that crown.
Both have had considerable success before teaming together with Peake only stepping back from the Zone representative side two years back while Stahlut made his debut in zone colours just last season.
The pair are both certainly capable of claiming the slam at the club but with the quality of their opposition in all events, the boys will be more than happy if they are able to walk away with at least one crown from the four events.
At West Coffs the major singles will be decided this weekend when Lou Maganbosco takes on Laurie Miles.
Lou will start the final as slight favourite although Laurie has been in great form in recent weeks and is a great chance of success.
n JUNIOR star Matt Miles has added two more zone titles to his growing tally of achievements at the recent Zone 14 junior titles.
Miles claimed the coveted singles crown as well as the fours, teaming with Ben Watson, Fletcher Barrett and Will White.
The pairs combination were unsuccessful.
For Watson, Barrett and White this was their first taste of zone championships and they fared well walking away with a title on debut.
The four will now travel to Warilla in July to contest the State finals, which will host the last 16 sides in the State.
