Moama below par at UBC

By Brayden May

MOAMA Bowling Club has discovered just how quickly sport can turn after a below par performance at the latest round of the Ultimate Bowls Championship (UBC).

After being eliminated in the semi-finals at the previous event, Moama failed to reach the knockout stage of the competition at Deer Park following a record of four wins and seven losses in the group stage.

Despite the result, team manager Zane Mikin-Laurie said he was pleased with how the team performed.

"On another day we could have won four more games such is the close nature of the format," he said.

"We enjoyed the quality of competition we face because it only makes our guys better bowlers going forward.

"The way these games swing means you are never really out of the contest."

Attention now turns to the final round of the UBC season, which is set to be hosted at MBC between December 12 and 13.

"The club is looking forward to welcoming such talented players to town," Mikin-Laurie said.

"The competition has continued to grow with each event and we can only hope it gets bigger.

"I would encourage people to get along and have a look."
