Bray Bowling News 16/05/22

For once our junior men's sides were both at home on the same Monday evening. And they both won, the Division 4 lads beating Crumlin despite losing on two of their three rinks. Just eight teams in Ladies Division 1 means that two don't play each week and our girls had the Wednesday off. On Old Fogies Day (Thursday) Veterans 1 and 3 enjoyed good home wins over Leinster and Blackrock. Vets 2 skips, Chris Fenton and Alan Rath, excelled at a windy Skerries, helping their team secure a valuable away point. Vets 4 made a long, fruitless (but otherwise enjoyable!) trip to Trim. On Saturday the men's Division 1 side travelled to Crumlin, fielding ladies for the first time ever. There they managed to steal two points off the D12 Galacticos thanks to the rinks of Marcus Donohoe and Wally Doyle. Only 5 shots separated the teams at the finish. Back at base the Division 2 boys garnered just 1.5 points from Dun Laoghaire though Alan Hopkins made a solid senior debut for the home side.

The BLI Championships are in full swing. Two of our warriors battled it out in a BLI Senior Singles match. Eoghain Brady emerged victorious having overturned Chris Fenton's lead. Meanwhile Patrick Brosnan received a bowling lesson on the grass of Blackrock from veteran, Alan Geary. In the pairs, Eoghain Brady and Peter Gough lost narrowly at Dun Laoghaire, the closing stages playing out as darkness descended. In the Junior Singles Owen Byrne enjoyed a successful day out in Crumlin. Pick of the matches was Newcomer Brendan Adamson's smash-and-grab win at North Kildare.

This Wednesday our ladies team face a challenging visit to Dun Laoghaire. On Thursday Vets 1 and 3 travel to Greenhills and Sportslink while Vets 2 and 4 host Ierne and Skerries. The Division 1 men play Dun Laoghaire at home on Saturday while their Division 2 club-mates try their luck in Crumlin. Monday evening sees the junior men's teams, both at home again, welcoming Sportslink and CYM.
