A powerful Martinborough men’s combination, and an experienced Masterton women’s team took the major spoils from the Lansdowne Park Lifestyle open fours at the Masterton Bowling Club on Sunday.

The men’s four, made up of representative players Gary Muriwai [skip], Scott Mackenzie, Hayden Frew, and Bill Brunenburg, were one of six teams to qualify from Saturday’s section play.

In Sunday morning’s quarterfinal, they held off a strong challenge from the Peter Davidson-skipped Lansdowne four to win 12-10. That set up a semifinal against a Masterton four skipped by John Claydon, which Muriwai won 16-6.

Their opponents in the final were the Featherston four of Peter Ireland [skip], Stuart Campbell, Les O’Donovan, and Bill Isaac, who had beaten the Doug Bennett-skipped four 15-11 in the quarterfinal.

The Muriwai four were always in control of the final and romped to a 17-8 victory.

The experienced Masterton four of Judith Wyeth [skip], Wendy Mitchell, Robyn Schischka, and Tina Hogg also dominated the women’s final, coming away with a 16-7 win over a composite four of Dorothy Christensen, Elaine Hemi, Karen Armitage, and Teresa Hogg. The victory added to Wyeth’s glittering array of more than 30 centre titles.

Ten men’s combinations and six women’s fours took to the greens for the two days of competition.
