Tense moments at Cudgen for Byron bowlers in the grade seven playoff last Saturday afternoon.

Two out of two Byron Bay Bowling Club pennant teams have made it through to the zone contests after the grade seven team beat Cudgen on the weekend.

The grade-three Pennants side went to Ocean Shores with the district flag safely in their keeping for the season. They were beaten on the day but will still progress to the Zone play-offs representing the Tweed Byron District.

The grade-seven team travelled to Cudgen and progressed to the Zone with an eight-shot victory in a tense battle.

In strong, blustery conditions, the Byron lads were behind early but settled into their groove and pulled ahead mid-way through the match and were never headed. 

The Club’s Bulla Burton travelled to Yamba on Sunday to contest the Zone Singles Title for the right to go through to the State Championships, but was defeated by Peter Taylor of Alstonville BC in the final.

Bulla and Jim Clark had won the Zone Senior Pairs at the same venue a week previous. Again the strong winds made it difficult for Bulla and Peter. Well done Bulla for getting that far and good bowls luck to Peter at the State Titles. 

In our own Club Championships, Sam Skehan and Gavin McPhail won the Club Pairs for this season defeating John Nasser and Bulla on Saturday morning. Earlier in the week, John and Bulla accounted for Peter Darby and Werner Borkhardt on Thursday to get into that Final.
