Minor Singles Champion 2019 - Tommy Burgmann

On a nice sunny spring afternoon, Tommy Burgmann (the Coach) faced off against Damien McPherson (the Rookie) in the 2019 Minor Singles Final. Tommy stormed out of the blocks eager to gain the upper hand, which he soon had with a 10 shot lead, and a game that was looking like it was going to be a whitewash. Damien however was having none of it, with some consistant draw bowling that soon had him back in the match, then in the lead 25-24. However with Damien just needing 2 shots to win, Tommy got his 2nd wind, and didn't allow Damien another shot. Congratulations Tommy, commiserations Damien, that was a very entertaining afternoon.

What a sensational day for the last major final of 2019. This was the David & Goliath battle of the ages, with the 2s graded superstars up against the 6/7s graded battlers!
It should be said that the 'battlers' had already beaten the third favourites (Kel Clarke, Peter Springett & John Aldersley) in the quarter finals, then beat the 2nd favourites (Darrin Fleming, Paul Watson & Shane Starkey) in the semi finals...could they beat the overall favourites (on paper) today??
It looked like after 15 ends that the 'battlers' were in a bit of trouble, however, they clawed their back in the middle of the game and got within striking distance! However, the super stars took a deep breath, kept their cool and steadied the ship, to eventually win 30 - 27.
Congratulations to Brendon Knight, Allan Rhodes & Mark Hogden on becoming the UBMBC 2019 Triples Champions. This give Mark the full set of UBMBC championship titles (well done Mark).
Very well done to Runners Up Terry Brown, Ron Austin & Shane Waddell on a sensational triples championship campaign. The team that dared to dream...
