The next round of GNW and WGT-NW pennant matches were played on Sunday and Monday.

In The men’s division one Devonport hosted a strong Wynyard team which turned out a closer match than expected, with a number of Devonport’s premier players not being available. Wynyard came out on top in the end with a 4/3 win. With Devonport’s Josh Molendyk, Peter Nielsen and Michael Routledge winning their matches with some convincing results, they only needed one more match to take out the season favourites. With Craig Hancock never in trouble against Keith Preece and Mark Allison having gone down to B Kalbfell 5/4 it was up to either Robbie McDonald or Allan Halliwell to pull something out of the bag. Mc Donald took Braden Field to the 17th but unfortunately Field won the 17th and the match 2/1. Halliwell in his first game of the season, put on a great display, but unfortunately loosing on the 18th hole.
