Pomona Squash

WE HAD a couple of new players join in our competition last week: Dean Hogg (known as Scrub Bull) and Stephen-John Lahiff (known as Bullistic).

The handicap system is working well, with only a few matches going one way (ie: 3-0).

Results in the 2nd Grade Bulls: Bull at a Gate (Mick Petersen) had to give Bulletproof (Jim Herbohn) a start (16 points) and could not peg him back until the third, Bullet proof winning, 34-32, 36-30, 29-38.

After quite a long time away from Squash, Bullistic (Stephen-John Lahiff) was on fire. Bullistic was too good for Crazy Bull (Bruce Pearce) on the night winning, 31-20, 33-25, 24-25.

Sitting Bull (Ralph Frankcom) took the first two games from Wounded Bull (Bob Gottke) but not the third, Sitting Bull winning, 31-29, 38-23, 30-36.

Honra Bull (Ross Honnery) and Bullock (Kaden McClintock) had a topsy turvy match, with many long rallies, but it was Bullock taking it in the end, 19-15, 12-25, 25-11.

Serva Bull (Vicki Polley) gave away a big start to Bullamakanka (Cameron Hughes) to just peg him back, Serva Bull winning, 33-31, 34-34, 36-31.

Results in the Top Grade Grade Bulls: Bull Terrier (Michael Taiaroa) went close but could not get the extra couple of points in each game to topple Bull Bar (Kent McClintock), with Bull Bar winning, 21-19, 21-19, 22-20.

Stud Bull (Mark Wilcox) was in great touch and form to topple Bull Winkle (Tony Kerr) 2 games to 1, 34-19, 28-25, 27-31. This win took Stud Bull's handicap to -8, which is the best so far this season.

Probabull (Matt Robinson) was all over Red Bull (Gary Elson) and gave nothing away winning, 35-19, 36-27, 33-32.

The Bull Fighter (Dennis Maher) and the Bullet (Pete Elson) were close (one and a half games each) with only 2 points in it overall, the Bullet winning, 18-18, 14-21, 20-15.

Scrub Bull (Dean Hogg) showed he had not lost anything after his layoff, defeating Bull Artist (Neil Hughes) 27-26, 26-20, 27-22.

The Untouchabull (Dave Lawless) gave No Bull (Tim Jerome) a top runaround, with Untouchable winning 20-18, 23-23, 25-22.

It will be a big occasion for most of our top players, when they compete and play for Gympie in the annual Agnew Shield. This event is played between the best available (top 6) men and women from Gympie, Maryborough and Bundaberg each year.

This year the event will be held in Maryborough on Sunday.
