Thursday, June 6, was another beautiful day for bowling.
Half-way through our league and we were at Alvor Bowling Club. Ros and Sheila in the kitchen and Pedro and Alex in the bar kept over 60 players and spectators supplied first with breakfast sandwiches followed by lunches and suitable drinks as needed. Many thanks to all.
Maggie Dance and Stuart Buckley were, as usual, the Umpires at their home club, and thanks go to them for their time and patience, morning and afternoon.
The green played well and was well prepared to challenge the day’s players. No team scored the full 10 points this week, proving how challenging the green was.
However, two teams scored really high with nine points each: they were Valverde Vulcans and Pedras Panthers.
Balaia Dolphins scored seven points against Floresta Falcons who scored three points; Alvor Egrets won four points against Floresta Squirrels who won six points; Albufeira Wildcats won four points from Alvor Kestrels who won six points; Tavira Tigers won one point from Valverde Vulcans who won nine points; whilst Valverde Vikings won one point from Pedras Panthers who won nine points.
There has been a complete change in the table, with the Valverde Vulcans and last year’s Summer League winners, Pedras Panthers, pulling away from the rest of the table. The top slot is held by Valverde Vulcans with 39 points but snapping at their heels are Pedras Panthers on 38 points. Valverde Vikings and Tavira Tigers are chasing closely behind on 33 points each. The team holding up the table this week are the Floresta Falcons with nine points.
Still four games to go, so plenty of time for lots of change.
