Maroon men lead the way

by admin on October 16, 2017

Queensland men sit at the top of the leaderboard at the 2017  Senior Sides Championships.

After day one of the competition Queensland has cemented it’s place at the top of the men’s competition ladder after a four shot victory over rivals New South Wales.

Geoff Maskell and Neville Jenkins were victorious for the Maroons, while NSW legend Rex Johnston continued his solid run to pick up NSW’s sole rink victory in the afternoon session, downing QLD’s Trevor Broadbent 18-11.

While in the women’s ladder after topping the ladder after a strong showing against the Northern Territory the Queenslanders found themselves in fourth place after taking on New South Wales in the second session of the day.

NSW women flipped the men’s results around, getting past Queensland by just four shots to nail down the top spot on the table. Carolyn Glen and Beth Quinlan had stellar performances winning by seven shots and six shots each, while Christina Pavlov’s rink was the sole winner for the Kookaburras.

Today’s two sessions will see Queensland take on ACT in the morning before playing against Western Australia in the afternoon.
