On Wednesday night the South Perth Bowling Club hosted the W.A. Police Bowling Club. The game was played in great spirits and the recently completed A green performed very well in its first match.
It was a well-credentialed Police side that prevailed with an aggregate win, though the two teams split the six rinks contested.
The Karl Vandersluys victory over Scott Walker proved the difference. Walker has been in irresistible form of late but despite the best efforts of his rink, was unable to bridge the sizeable deficit.
A shining light for South Perth was the victory of the David Mortley rink over Wayne Olive’s crew. Despite dropping an eight, Mortley was able to keep the aggregate within reach for most of the night with an eight shot margin.
The game gave South Perth the opportunity to debut two new members in their first uniformed game, with Wendy Davidson and Bob Josham both performing well.
