A team consisting of Phil Green, The Snake, Dillon (e?)X and Cap'n Warren delighted fans with an action packed, come from behind victory in the barefoot bowls finals. At 4 -1 down with two ends to go the opposition seemed to become complacent with their lead. However in the fading light the purple cobras using tactical bowls to perfection managed to clinch the victory 5 - 4 and head off to tiger R500 richer.
The day had got off to an inauspicious start with the Cobras losing their first game 8 -1. The X seemed to be distracted, which is not surprising considering the previous nights events, and had trouble finding the green. Phil Green had not yet come to the party and the Snake was the only reason the cobras didn't suffer a humiliating white washing.
The second game was the much anticipated match up against the highly rated striking mamas. With experience on their side and the fact that their captain holds Warren's purse strings the Cobras knew it was always going to be a tough match. However the cobras crowd had steadily built up throughout the evening and provided the much needed support with Dillon visibly relaxing when Blake and his bakkie arrived. The event was made even more historic with Bug honouring us by bringing his first date to the greens. Ah young love. Needless to say the Cobras came out fighting and the rest, as they say, is history.
Thanks must go out to the supporters in helping the Cobras throughout the season with the culmination being the log victory and an award for best supported team. Once again thanks Bug.
Oh so brave...
