WANGARATTA produced the upset of the round against the previously undefeated Yarrawonga team in Ovens and Murray pennant’s top grade on Saturday.
Wangaratta was able to notch its second consecutive win and move to within six points of a top four berth despite a number of regulars being unavailable.
Greg McDonald’s rink of Alf Wright (third), Peter ‘Perfect’ Ryan (second) and Gerald Brown (lead) put on a clinic against Rob Tait, winning 15 of the 25 ends played to post a 15-shot victory (30-15).
Ian Brimblecombe’s rink picked up six shots on the third end of their match, which would ultimately prove the difference in an otherwise tight contest as they were able to edge out Roger McKenzie by just three shots (25-22).
Dennis Wadley took over the reins of Trevor Selwood’s rink and they held their own against a talented Tim Cromie rink, going down by just four shots (23-27).
The heroics of the day though came from Leon Quartermain’s rink, who found themselves down 2-14 after just nine ends against Kevin Evans’ rink.
