BullStock 16 – Sat Oct 3rd

 

History was made on a mild Saturday arvo, in the heart of Hallett Cove hosting Bullstock 16.

4 teams took to the stage, with each team playing each other twice before the finals series, which consisted on a Preliminary Final only, the winner to take on the team that finished top after the round robin stage.

It was the Great Whites that took the title home, with first time winner A.Webb (M.VanGerwin) and debuton J.Benson (S.Whitlock) defeating a gallant Redbacks (J.Stocks & J.Nimmo) in a tight final winning 294 -187.

A.Webb was on fire all day, and his counterpart also consistently contributed all day, the only team not to beat the Great Whites all day was in fact the Redbacks who could not beat them on 3 occasions throughout the day.

The BlueTongues (Spam & M.Baker) finished equal second after the round robin, and put up a fight in the Prelim going down to the Redbacks 369 -220.

The Brownies (Snail & Remfs) had there chances through out the day to challenge for the finals, winning there last 2 games, but also having narrow losses of 16 and 17 points. If the BlueTongues lost there final game, the Brownies were through to the finals.

As for the Redbacks another missed final opportunity gone begging for J.Nimmo & J.Stocks who were both patchy all day, but also had there chances in the final for a late comeback.

In the end this was the closest tournament we have had so far and is a credit to the training and commitment of the players involved.
