United effort secures pennants success

UNITED Bowls Club are celebrating their latest pennants success at their home club.

United were the only regional club to have three teams make the finals today.

The United Division 4 side won their first flag after two days of exciting competition at the Joyce Street venue on Monday and today.

The Division 4 team defeated Algester by 15 shots.

The Division 3 side were also victorious, beating Sunnybank by 14 shots.

After beating Algester by seven shots on Monday, United's Division 1 team lost today's final to Darra.

"Darra played the better bowls on the day,'' United player Marie Lipp said.

"United gave away a large margin in the first quarter of the game but came back to close the gap to go down by 11.''

She said Sandy Gilbert and her team were United's best performed on the day.

"It was two great days of bowls and all visitors commented on the high standard of greens that our greenkeeper Joe prepares,'' Lipp said.

"There was lots of cheering, clapping and excitement filled the bowls greens at United.''
