Millers welcome Kerkow for Friday night blockbuster

Last Friday the South Perth Millers hosted Doubleview in the first night pennant fixture of the season.

Kelvin Kerkow OAM, in Perth for a series of Aero Bowls demonstrations, was the main attraction on the night and ensured a good crowd was in attendance.

Playing three to Scott Walker, he helped South Perth jumped out to an early lead before the game tightened up in the middle stages.

As the night went on, Doubleview became more accustomed to the conditions and established a small margin which South Perth couldn’t bridge.

Some last end heroics by Danny Penman’s rink failed to score the four shots required for an aggregate victory and Doubleview ran out victors 77 (6 1/2) to 75 (1 1/2).
