The finals on the Stars side wasn't without a heavy dose of drama as the whole match came down the final bowls on the very last end. Congratulations to the winners and, especially, Dave and Mert.
I'd also like to give a shout out to the other Newport teams who competed right through to the final weekend. Ron Gill and Keith McCabe, unfortunately, had to bow out of the competition when a last-minute event prevented them from playing out but they had one of the most-fun matches I can recall seeing in some time. Playing against a formidable team, led by Scott Roberts, Ron and Keith were losing 4-14 halfway through but clawed their way back to force a 1-end playoff which they won.
Jimmer Wysopal and Herb Glazeroff also played extremely well with close, hard-fought matches throughout. Brian Stewart and Matt Bauchiero also played through to the second Saturday. All in all, Newport players had a terrific showing.
