Sports Shorts November 20th
After winning all three grades the previous week Guyra had to sit out all three senior games on the weekend. First and second grades had a scheduled bye, and the scheduled third grade game did not go ahead due to the withdrawal of Easts from the competition. All teams will be back in action this weekend with firsts at home to Hillgrove at Ted Mulligan Oval, seconds also at home against Easts at the Sporting Complex, while thirds will make the trip down the hill to take on TAS at Wakefield.
Guyra’s junior teams all got a game with the Under 14s getting their third win in a row against CSC Gold. Sent in to bat after losing the toss, Guyra lost some early wickets and were struggling at 3 for 32. Ben Reinke (33) and Rave Brazier (48) fought back with a good partnership before both lost their wicket with the score on 115. Tahmani Landsborough (18 not out) also contributed a good knock with Guyra finishing the day on 5 for 144 at the end of their 25 overs.
Guyra bowled well to dismiss CSC for 101. Wickets went to Brodi Campbell (2 for 6), Harrison Brazier 2 for 14, Rave Brazier (1 for 3) and Coooper Brennan (1 for 8). In the field Cooper Collins and Tahmani Landsborough added to the dismissals with runouts to wrap up the innings and the win for Guyra.
The under 12s have yet to come out on top with three losses and a draw so far this season. In their game against Ex Services played on the weekend Angus Dullaway (25) was the only player to make it to double figures. Guyra were dismissed for 56 runs during the 13th over.
In reply, Ex-Services got the win off 12.5 overs for the loss of five wickets. Angus Dullaway (1 for 8), Tynan Bull (1 for 3) and Sam Surawski (2 for 3) took wickets. This team has a lot of new players and will improve as the season progresses.
There was only one Club Championship game played over the weekend and that was a Handicap Singles game played between Geoff Reeves (+6) and Wayne Reeves (+5), with the Handicap being only one shot the difference it looked as though a long afternoon loomed. This proved to be the case as both traded shots and the lead however Wayne slowly edged ahead and went on to take a victory 33 shots to 20 shots over 28 ends.
This Saturday will see a number of Club Championships contested.

We are now in to the fourth round of the Midweek competition and everything is coming together. It is great to see everyone out on the course even if it is extremely dry.
There was only one team this week with six players so Plus Fours get the Bonus points. Beau Orchard and Darren Lennon scored 22 points this week. Next in line with 21 was Bob Burey, Ian Taylor and Steve Kliendienst.
Next week from November 25th to December 1st it will be a double points round. Put in your normal score on cards and we will sort it out. A reminder from bar staff to please pay before playing or when putting your card in.
Horrendous winds and the threat of fires kept the numbers down to six last week the 12th November.
A Stroke counting Putts was played with the winner Ian Taylor scoring 90 with the net winner Paul Redden with 77.
It was Paul’s day as he also won the putts with 28 and nearest the pin on the 18th.
The only other nearest the pin was Don Campbell on the 7th.
Let’s hope this week will see better weather, but does not look likely.
