Brunswick does it in style
FORM side throughout the season, Brunswick Heads has taken Tweed-Byron's No1 pennant season in style.
Brunswick Heads set the pace and maintained it throughout.
In the last round on Saturday it cleaned up Byron Bay 61-44.
The five points gained took Brunswick's tally to 49, a decisive 9.5 points ahead of runner-up Pottsville.
Pottsville, tipped pre-season to be highly competitive, had some disastrous opening rounds but came home in a hurry ? handing out a 68-45 six-point drubbing to Cabarita Beach at the final outing.
Seemingly out of contention through the season, Pottsville did remarkably well to edge Murwillumbah out of second place.
The best Murwillumbah could do in the last round was a 58-all draw with Condong.
Cabarita Beach took the wooden spoon only a few points behind Byron Bay.
Both sides had a season they'd rather forget.
Final points: Brunswick Heads 49, Pottsville 39.5, Murwillumbah 36, Condong 28, Byron Bay 16.5, Cabarita Beach 11.
Lower grade pennant winners and runners-up:
No3: Ocean Shores, Murwillumbah. No4: Brunswick Heads, Burringbar. No5: Ocean Shores, Condong. No6: Cabarita Beach, Murwillumbah. No7: Cudgen Leagues, Burringbar.
WITH the end of the pennant season and the pending arrival of southern visitors, Tweed-Byron carnivals are getting into full swing.
First will be Mullumbimby's annual tourney on the June long weekend, followed closely by Burringbar's International Day (men's fours, two games of 18 ends, 9.30am start) on June 18.
On Monday, June 20, it's the Ocean Shores Cup. This is men's three-bowl triples, two games of 11 ends starting at 1pm.
Pottsville and Condong will hold events later in the month.
For a mate
