In Division One of the A League Waikato Thoroughbreds finished up on top with a good win over Manawatu Marauders by 11-5. Outstanding score from Martin Hunt with a 300.22. Also in the running was Rory McLeod on 299.20 which included a 200.17. Manawatu's junior Sarah Reesby also in the red with a 100.6.
The Division Two Final was very close with the Nelson Gunz sneaking a 7-6 win over the Plainsmen. Even with the team total you couldn't get it any closer. Nelson Gunz on 4951.227 and the Plainsmen on 4952.225. Although the Plainsmen had 1 point for the top team total, plus 5 points for the open team win, Nelson Gunz won the Composite and Junior squads which gave them the win with 7 points. There were no bonus points in this match. Then they went on to beat Taranaki Hardcore in the relegation match with a points score of 8-5. We won't say any more about that match except congratulations to Nelson Gunz who are now up with the big guns.
In the B League this year we had 3 teams again with Hutt Valley competing with a team in both divisions. Well done. There were a few adjustments with the rules with this division this year and I think we have got it pretty spot on with the way it ran this year. Would be good to see more teams in this division next year. The Final this year was won by the Titans with a score of 15-0. There were 4 scores of 299 with varying centrals in this round, two in each team. Shania Harrison-Lee 200.22, and TJ Stewart 200.19 from the Titans helped the bonus points. The 299 cards from the Jaffas were Jonathon Gill and Rudi Myburgh both shot 2 100s, only on the single card and one in the double. Still good shooting. Must be good water in the South Island that their juniors are drinking, with the steady good scores that they have achieved throughout the season.
The winner of the Simon Grant Trophy this year is Jonathon Gill From the Jaffas with a Score of 1195.86. Sorry Martin Hunt who came a very,very, close second with a score of 1195.85!!
The winner of Siggy's Salver this year is Shania Harrison-Lee with a score of 785.44. Also a very close second was Jess Burgess-Smith with her score of 784.33.
Wow! I just noticed that both these winners are in the B League. Well Done.
Congratulations to the Winning Teams and also to all the competitors who shot in these finals. I would like to thank all the co-ordinators for their part of keeping this NDC Competition going, you all did a good job by getting the scores back to me in good time for me to process and return the results. A big thank you to all the teams that competed this year and was good to see the B League continuing. Hopefully we can get some more in this league next year. I have enjoyed putting all these scores together for this NDC Competition and look forward to working with you all Next Year (If you will still have me.) All the best for the rest of the indoor competition.
