Chairman of Selectors Report Round 14 – 20/02/21
Well what can I say. I guess most members will blame the selectors but really I myself blame the opposition players. Our opposition players seem to be a step above us as in consistency and have the ability to always have bowls in the head. We as a club need to be able to adjust to all greens as it shows with the number of wins from all divisions having home games. One division out of five to play finals is embarrassing for a club of our size.
Division 1 had their last game of the season at home against Mt.Gambier RSL Blue only 2 points ahead for 4th position. A good win would put Millicent into finals but the Mount side wanted that spot as well and after a closely fought game Mt.Gambier RSL Blue came out victorious. Mt.Gambier RSL Blue 72 shots 14 points to Millicent 68shots 2 points.
Division 2 made the journey north to Naracoorte hoping for a miracle win to keep off the bottom, again another tight game but we couldn’t get over the line maybe the counter lunches are a bad omen. Although with one rink having a win and the other a draw we were unable to finish off. Naracoorte 82 shots 13 points to Millicent 66 shots 3 points.
Division 3 Red travelled south to Port MacDonnell our only Division safe in the top four. Again another tight game and finally getting over Port MacDonnell with a 2 rink win. Millicent Red 75 shots 14 points to Port MacDonnell 68 shots 2 points. Congratulations and all the best for next week’s Semi-Final.
Division 3 Blue played at home to Mt.Gambier RSL, a hard game to be played against the top placed team. Again Mt Gambier RSL raced away showing why they are in that position on the ladder, finishing with a convincing win Millicent 45 shots 0 points to Mt.Gambier 84 shots 16 points.
Division 4 a home game against Mt.Gambier Red an excellent finish to the season by our team finishing in 5th spot. Millicent 79 shots 16 points to Mt.Gambier Red 53 shots 0 points.
