The Byron Bay Bowling Club number seven pennants team missed out on a finals berth at the state titles by just a single shot over the weekend.

The team started strongly, winning their section and defeating West Tamworth on Friday afternoon, Norah Head in a close tussle on Saturday morning, and overcoming Batlow on Saturday afternoon to qualify for Sunday morning’s semifinal against Taree West.

They were defeated in that game by one shot overall on the last end after a tight measure for the vital shot.

‘Well done, the Bay’s Sevens, who were great ambassadors for our town and club and gained memorable experience from this competition,’ club member Syl Reid said.
