All three mid-week teams will play finals this week, after the final round of home and away matches was completed last Friday. In the final round Divisions Two and Three recorded strong wins, whilst the Division One side lost a close match against Rochester. All semi final matches will be played at Rich River on Friday, and City of Echuca members are encouraged to get along and support our players in all three divisions.

In weekend pennant, Divisions One, Two and Four recorded good wins, whilst Division Three lost their match against ladder leaders Rich River. The Division Five side received a forfeit from Tongala. The Division One match against Rich River was close all day, with the Echuca team holding on to win by 3 shots. But importantly, they picked up two rink wins and a tie. The Division Two side played at Rich River and Garry Hunter’s team of Carly Taylor, Eddie Blampied and John O’Brien continued their great form to win their game by 28 shots. This led the way for an overall win by 36 shots. The Division Three side was competitive for most of the day against Rich River but eventually lost by 18 shots. Division Four was also in a close battle but finished the day in front by one shot. Lal Whyte, Greg Clymo, Maurie Spiers and Steve Morgan led the way with an 8 shot win in their game.
