Round 7 results
Breaking news ladder leaders Mentone lose all their points from the first 7 rounds for playing an unregistered player. This has not benefited Melbourne as we beat Mentone 18-0 or Yarraville/footscray and MCC as they had not played them. All other sides picked up major points as they had lost to Mentone. This has resulted in big changes in the order of the ladder.
Round 7 summary
Gordon Lowing, Kevin Oram, Matt Green Sean Ingram – Div 2 — 16 up
Kev Lehane, Timmothy Charles, Dean Thomas Alan Stone – Div 4 — 8 up
Ash Harvey, Alan Burness, Barry McGreggor, Arnold O’Brien Div 2 — 7 up
Great day for Melbourne sides today. All sides up (for the second time this season). Yes that means drinks on the club!!!
The third side did it the hard way though. With 2 ends to play and the overall score having Melb 3 down, Ron Jackson’s rink level at 19 all and everyone else has finished. Melb with the mat brought it right up for a short end into the ditch. It worked scored 3. Scores level with one end to play. An exact repeat of the previous end gave Melb another 3 and 3 up on the overall board. 6 in the last 2 ends did it. The second time in two games the third side has won it on the last end. Fighting spirit and it’s never over type stuff but!!!!
Melbourne 2 in second position 24 points ahead of 3rd. Melbourne 4 up to 8th are the big ladder stories this week.
