THE composite team of David McLean (Sandy Bay), Mark Nitz (Burnie), Wayne Denny (Burnie) and Chris Dudman (Longford) won the BCIB Tasmanian Open Fours Championship in difficult conditions at Devonport yesterday.
They defeated Greg Douce, Daniel Baker, Joshua Baker and Rodney Horton 21-17.
After 15 ends of the 21-end game scores were level at 12-all. McLean then scored a one and a three to lead 16-12. Douce evened up the game with a four to make it 16-16.
McLean played the perfect running shot to take the kitty into the ditch and score a four for his team to lead 20-16 and closed out in the final two ends.
It is the third year on end that the same combination has won the title.
In the semi-finals Douce always had his hands full against Latrobe teammates Nick Smith, Chris Bannon and Philip Mundy, winning 23-20. The McLean combination always had control of its semi, winning 23-12 against Trevallyn.
In the singles Brodie Baker defeated Brian Goold 25-19 and David Genford played some telling drives to beat Tim Douce 25-17.
Michael Sims defeated Simon Zaporozec 25-10, John McKibben won 25-20 over Scott Summers, Andrew Whitmore was a little too strong for David Heron (25-21) and Shaun Graf defeated Phil Mundy 25-16.
