Southern Blazers tested in rounds two and three of the SA Super League bowls competition

For Rounds 2 and 3 of the SA Super League, the Southern Blazers took on the Northern Knights with both teams looking to open their accounts after losses in Round 1.

In the singles, Geoff Munn represented the Blazers taking on Bernie Ward for the Knights. The duo were locked at eight apiece after 11 ends.

From there, Ward claimed a 11-16 victory and the rink win for the Knights.

In the pairs, Ben Fidock and Gavin Pfeiffer from the Blazers took on Jack Trenorden and Kane Coulls for the Knights.

The Knights’ pair started strong and never looked back, scoring shots on the last six ends to run away to a 6-25 victory.

The Southern Blazers’ triples combination of Theresa Emberton, Justin Parkinson and Marc Evans tried to their best to turn the overall scoreboard in favour of the Blazers playing well throughout the game and recording a 24-6 rink victory over Karin Lynch, Brent Marshall and Matthew Short for the Knights.

It wasn’t quite enough as the overall scoreboard finished 41-47 over the Knights who claimed 10 points to the Blazers two.

In Round 3, the Blazers faced the Heysen Comets. In the singles, Geoff Munn matched up against Ashley Halls. Both players showed their singles experience, going shot for shot to enter the last end tied at 14.

Munn had a Super End up his sleeve and managed to score two shots which doubled to four as he clinched a 18-14 rink win for the Blazers.

In the Pairs, Stephanie Clarke and Gavin Pfeiffer of the Blazers took on Grace Moloney and Cassandra Harvey of the Comets.

It was another high quality affair as the teams were tied at 12 all after 13 ends. The Blazers then put together a match winning run claiming four ends in a row to take an 18-13 victory.

Finally, the triples encounter saw Harry Burgess, Justin Parkinson and Marc Evans pitted against Jackie Gardiner, Josh Chopin, Scott Thulborn.

Things looked promising for the Blazers after they claimed a strong win in the triples in Round 2, however they ran into a strong triples outfit with all players for the Comets playing well.

The Blazers were powerless to defend the onslaught as they succumbed 9-29.

This gave the Comets the win, who recorded a 45-56 victory and with one rink win, the points were four to the Blazers and eight to the Comets.
