Congratulations to our Division One Mid-Week Club Challenge side; Champions defeating Raymond Terrace in the Final played at Club Lambton.

A great effort by our Division 3 side who narrowly were defeated by Beresfield in their final also at Club Lambton.

Once again thank you to all the players and selectors for a successful Mid-Week campaign for Solders Point Soldiers.


Saturday Open Pennant:

One Grade finished in Second place with two losses and 8 wins, which has meant our side has finished in second place behind Raymond Terrace qualifying for a spot in the State Playoffs. The top two sides go directly through to the State Finals held at Foster Bowling Club from 29th  June – 2nd July.

Two Grade were defeated by Raymond Terrace and Hamilton North in the Zone 2 Playoffs and had a win over Warners Bay which meant we didn’t qualify for the State Playoffs.

Seven Grade narrowly missed out on the Zone Final for their flag losing the first round of playoffs to the home side Valentine and then going on to defeat Fingal Bay and Teralba but not managing to get enough rink wins to make the Final.

Over 100 entrants competed in the Newcastle Zone “Reserve Singles”. Finalists Ben Rowsell (Raymond Terrace) and Pete Smith (Soldiers Point) had both won six rounds to reach the Final. This was held at Soldiers Point before appreciative spectators. The match started very competitively with single shots being gained by both players on most ends. However, Pete gained a decisive lead by winning two ends by multiple shots. he went on to win 25 shots to 10 and will compete in the State Finals at Wollongong in July.
