Wairarapa convincingly beat Kapiti Coast for their first win in their annual representative fixture in several years.

There were encouraging signs for the selectors, Peter Davidson for the men, and Tanya Wheeler for the women, as Wairarapa swept the men’s A and women’s A matches at Masterton Bowling Club on Sunday.

However, Kapiti won four of the six B team matches and won the morning’s 2-4-2 matches, 8-6.

The overall result was 36-28 in favour of Wairarapa.

Four of the six afternoon’s matches were closely fought with three or fewer shots separating the teams.

John Claydon … winning skip of Wairarapa fours.

The closest was the men’s fours, where the teams went into the final end locked up at 14-14.

The Wairarapa four skipped by John Claydon held two shots with one bowl remaining. Kapiti skip Peter Thomson went close to stealing the match with his last shot, but his bowl picked up the jack and left Wairarapa with the winning shot.

In the men’s singles, Wairarapa’s Ian Monaghan had a topsy-turvy match with Geoff Bovey before he prevailed by three shots.

The Featherston combination of Scott Mackenzie [skip] and Hayden Frew dominated their match, winning by seven shots.

The women’s singles were won by Makaia Campbell by two shots over Lynda Rayner.

The Tanya Wheeler-skipped four also won by two shots, while the pair of Dale Rowe [skip] and Janelle Frew had a six-shot victory.

In the B teams, the women’s pair of Fiona Mancer [skip] and Shirley Poutu, and the men’s four skipped by Steve Willis were the only home teams to score wins.
