Vistabella Bowls Report.
The club started off well on Monday with a win for the Albatrosses away to Quesada Pearls in the Enterprise Div. Points 10 – 4 and shots 103 to 94. In the Discovery Div. the Drivers at home to Emerald Ilse Neptunes had a convincing win of 12 – 2 with shots for 128 and 72 against putting them in a unassailable position of 3rd. in the league. In the Voyager Div. the Eagles had again one of their close encounters doing well away against the San Luis Galaxies 8 – 6 with shots 106 – 105. How do they do it ?
On Wednesday in the Winter league Vistabella away to Javea Green had a thrashing of 12 – 0. Not one of those days !!! The food provided for lunch was excellent and though hammered everyone enjoyed themselves. That’s what it’s all about.
Friday saw in Div.A the Lanzadores away to San Luis Tigers win 4 – 10 with shots 85 to 120 whereas in Div. B the Picadores at home to Emerald Ilse Claymores lose 4 – 10 with shots 104 – 105 just missing the badly needed 2 points by 2 shots. Div. C saw the Conquistadores lose at home to the Country Bowls Cubs 2 – 12 with 88 shots to 127.
