Welcome to the Zone 14 Bowling Association website
Junior 7-A-Side championships – final results
Overall our side came 5th with individual section details below - a great effort considering the rebuilding we are just going through following the loss of a few of our seasoned players from last year who turned 18. Our side performed very well.
Interesting to note all of the last games were won/lost by 1 shot.
Josh Carney, Lachlan Cooper, Brendon Clarke and Ben Wynter lead the way with three wins – 15 – 12 against Zone 4, 15 – 11 against Zone 8 and 13 – 10 against Zone 10 to win their section and progress into the Semi-finals in the gold medal rounds.
In the semi-final Josh, Lachlan, Brendon and Ben won a tight game 17 – 13 against Zone 15 and proceeded to the final against the strong Zone 4 team.
In a nail biter – Zone 4 won the final by 1 shot 13 – 14 BUT OUR FOURS ARE THE SILVER MEDALLISTS – WELL DONE!!!!
Joseph Clarke and Cody Griffin also started off with a 29 – 8 win against Zone 4, and followed up with an 18 – 8 win over Zone 8 to see them joint leaders with Zone 10. A titanic tussle in the last round saw Zone 10 win by 3 shots 18 – 15.
Joseph and Cody went down in their morning semi-final 15 – 20 in their section playing for 5th to 8th against Zone 16 and lost their last game by 1 shot to Zone 7 finishing 8th overall. While they lost their last 3 games these were by 3 shots, 5 shots and 1 shot – a little bit of luck and the result/s may have been different.
Alex Pyke started well with a 4 shot win against Zone 4 (Grey), however a narrow 3 shot loss to Zone 8 saw Zone 10 lead the section. The final game saw Zone 10 victorious 25 – 14.
Alex won his semi-final 25 – 21 in the section playing for 9th to 12th against Zone 15 and finished up with a win in his last game 25 – 24 against Zone 3 to secure 9th position overall.
Standing - Andrew Griffin (Chairman of Junior Bowls Committee), Alex, Brendon, Cody and Josh. Kneeling - Joseph, Lachlan and Ben.

ZONE 14 MAKES THE FINALS OF THE STATE SENIOR INTER ZONE SIDES CHAMPIONSHIPS FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER!!!!
Congratulations to our Senior Inter Zone side, while no doubt disappointed, can feel proud of their achievement in reaching the State final - a first for our Zone.
A great effort especially when considering they had accounted for the defending champion Zone 2 in the first round.
It was always going to be a difficult task against their opponents (congratulations Zone 12) however earlier results also against very good opponents had shown our boys were fighters!!
While the final score showed a difference of 26 shots the game was close for a while however the turning point was one bad end, where 11 shots were lost over the 3 rinks, giving Zone 12 a lead that proved too difficult to recover from.
Our side didn't give in and at one stage had reduced the difference back to 10 shots but the strong Zone 12 side slowly pulled away to win 67 - 41.
Thanks to our sponsors
