2014 Buckworth Shield


2014 Buckworth Shield held at Ettalong on Tuesday 20 May. Play consisted of three games of 10 ends. Two games were played before lunch and one game after lunch. The winner is the Club with the highest aggregate score.  The Ettalong Team took to the Green with high expectations after winning the Shield  in 2013. Unfortunately, the three other Clubs who contest the Buckworth  Shield, Everglades, Umina Beach, and Woy Woy had other ideas. Game 1 Ettalong had a very nervous start only hitting their straps about halfway through the game. The girls came home well, and gave Everglades a run for their money, going down by two shots. Score Everglades 24 Ettalong 22. Game 2 saw us come up against Woy Woy who took the game by seven shots. Score Woy Woy 20 Ettalong 13. After lunch Ettalong played Umina Beach and were the victors with a win.Score  Ettalong 23 Umina Beach 14.

Winners:              Everglades 68

Second:                Woy Woy 65

Third:                   Ettalong 58

Fourth:                 Umina Beach 48


Congratulations go to all four Clubs for three entertaining games of bowls.
