The second round of the Bowls North West premier league is done and dusted, producing some great and rather interesting results across the Coast. There were three reasonably close games and one blow-out, with even an eight scored on the first end in one of the matches on Saturday, October 28. Ulverstone took on South Burnie, and unfortunately for South they were very effectively dismantled by a strong and impressive Ulverstone outfit on all 4 rinks by way of 45 shots to the Robins. First up was Eden Moore, who took on Nick Chilcott with Moore and the lads continuing on their merry way with a 10 shot victory, 24-14. Rob McMullen made his debut with an impressive 12-shot win over Peter Lockhart, 21-9. Taelyn Male nabbed another two points, getting the better of Andrew Rossiter by six shots, 20-14. Last but definitely not least, Micheal Jack Sims handed out a 17-shot defeat to Danny Fox, 28-11. Bad luck to the South boys coming off a bye, as facing Ulverstone is a mighty hard task. Devonport claimed a three rink 14-shot win over Penguin to make up for its round one loss last week to the Tigers. Penguin is yet to trouble the winner's list but have had two close games. Anthony Johns took on Wayne Manson with Johns getting the two points by four shots, 20-16. Micheal Sims and Mark Atkinson had a cracking game with Sims just taking the win by three shots, 21-18. Scotty Summers returned to pennant in style with a resounding 16-shot win over Rae Simpson, 27-11. Ricki Richardson claimed the two points for Penguin with a nine-shot win over Cam Windram, 24-15. Once again there is a lot to be said for keeping deficit margins to a minimum. In what some might call the upset of the round, Latrobe and Ridgley went head-to-head. Ridgley won on two rinks, losing one and drawing on another with an overall win of four shots. Elijah Murray managed a three-shot win after a close tussle over Micheal Aherne, 18-15. Mark Wynwood provided Timmy Douce with a rare loss, defeating Douce by five shots, 22-17. Johnny Walters went down to Greg Douce in a close game by just the four shots, 13-17. There was a draw between Shawn Armstrong and Callum Butler, both finishing on 22 apiece. I did hear whispers the rink of Shawn Armstrong, Tony Denny, Phil Jones and Leon White scored the ultimate eight shots on the very first end of the game. Finally we have Port Sorell taking on Wynyard, which turned out to be a bit of a nail-biter right up until the last few ends. Port Sorell made plenty of noise and put on quite a display on its home turf. Mark Nitz and Codi Marshall faced off with Nitz getting up by five shots, 19-14. Due to a big comeback, Sam McLean and Paul Marshall played an absolute cracker with just one shot separating them. The win and the two points went to Marshall, 21-20. ALSO IN SPORT: Another beauty was the match between Jarryd Brown and Josh Marshall, finishing 17-17. Wynyard picked up the one on the last end to win 18-1. Josh Walker-Davis managed a great victory over Aaron Jago to win by six shots, 23-17. The game overall was as close as it gets with Wynyard just edging out its rivals in the later ends to claim 12 points and 11 shots overall with three rink wins. What an awesome week of bowls. Burnie will be looking to get back into it next round with this year is providing us with the closest margins in recent times. Congratulations to Ridgley on its first win - very impressive.
