Division Three Goulburn Valley team used their ‘get out of jail free’ card playing in the preliminary final at Euroa against East Shepparton.
In an exciting finish, the last rink playing for East Shepparton scored three shots on the last two ends to draw the game at 103 shots each, forcing all rinks to play another end each in an effort to obtain a result.
As a consequence, Seymour VRI scored five shots in the extra play off while East Shepparton could only score three shots added to the drawn game, resulting in Seymour VRI winning by two shots and entering the grand final next week for another game against Mooroopna Golf at a venue to be advised.
The champion rink on the day were Phil Challis, Moreno Puppa, Michael Szczykulski and Geoff Neal winning by 26 shots. They were the only winning rink for the team with enough shots up to cover the losses of the other three rinks, but it was close.
Seymour VRI 108 defeated East Shepparton 106.
Geoff Neal’s rink, well in control, scored five shots on the 11th end, six shots on the 13th end and scored four shots on five occasions to dominate the game being 25 shots up at the 18th end and finishing up with a 25 shot win before the play-off.
Greg Jones’ rink played a competitive game up to afternoon tea, being two shots down at the 20th end, then won the last two ends and finished seven shots down before the play off.
Bill Dawe’s rink built up a handy lead and it took the opposition 23 ends to take the lead, but the rink let themselves down by scoring on only two ends after tea and were five shots down prior to the play-off.
Luke Spargo’s rink lost their sparkle on Saturday, trailed their opposition by 10 shots on the 13th end and again at the 20th end, and could not gain any score going down by 13 shots prior to the play-off.
Results after 104 ends played: P. Challis, M. Puppa, M. Szczykulski, G. Neal (s) 40 def. B. Nicolson 14. B. Voogt, R. Hockley, J. Purcell, G. Jones (s) 25 lost to A. Taylor 30. H. Flint, B. Anderson, K. Towt, B. Dawe (s) 23 lost to D. Downs 31. I. McBean, M. Furletti, W. Noonan, L. Spargo (s) 20 lost to G. Cervi 31.
Next Saturday the Division Three Goulburn Valley team will play in the big dance against Mooroopna Golf. The team has defeated Mooroopna Golf on two occasions during the season and expects to bring home the silver ware together with the expected Midweek trophy played for on Tuesday.
We need as many supporters to cheer on the team on Saturday, and whatever the result a grand final night function will be held at the club house when the players return, with snack foods and drinks available to all members.
We are urgently looking for members, partners and friends to enter the AFL Football Tipping Competition starting on Thursday, March 22.
— Two Hats
The last hope of finals success was eliminated in the preliminary final last Saturday. The Section 5 side battled hard but were eventually defeated by Hill Top by seven shots with the rink of Bardy McLeod, Ed Dunn, Keith Hollands and John Humphries the winning rink.
It was a good effort by the side in a difficult division with two sections of eight sides playing for the one flag.
A reminder to members that the presentation night is to be held on Saturday, March 24 from 6.30pm, $25 for a two-course meal, names to be registered at the club rooms by March 19 for catering purposes.
