Blockhouse Bay Men’s teams featured well in the Auckland Fours. Three of the Four Men’s teams managed it through to Post Section play. Rather sadly the three teams were in the same part of the draw. The Allan Smith team played Pt Chevalier in the quarter finals. The tone of the game was set on the first end when Blockhouse Bay held three good shots to have the jack run into the ditch to go 1 down! There were opportunities but the well performed Pt Chev team kept the game tight to go on to win 14-10. In the other quarter final the Warwick Frederikson team played the Peter Hurle team. Warwick got off to a great start to lead 12-2, when Peter rallied his team winning eleven points in the next three ends, taking the score to 12-13. From there the initiative stayed with Peter who went on to win 22-16. The Semi Final saw Peter facing off against Pt Chev. Peter’s team was not able to stem the Pt Chev charge who went on to win the game 21-7.
The two Women’s Fours teams found the going tough in the qualifying rounds and missed getting through to section play.
