Wellington Development team struggle to make an impact in Auckland

21 August 2012

The Wellington and Auckland development teams clashed for the sixth time over the weekend. Playing at the Herne Bay Pétanque club, the Wellington team struggled with the tricky terrain.

On Saturday, Auckland gained a slight advantage (13-11) in the Singles. The Doubles were a different story as Auckland lost just three of the eighteen games to finish the day comfortably ahead 43 match points to 17.

Four rounds of Triples (16 games) took place on Sunday, with Auckland needing just four wins to retain the Chanticleer Cup they won at Kapiti last year. This they managed to do in the second round.

With the match secured, the draw for the final two rounds of Triples was changed so that the Open teams played against the Senior teams. The change didn't help Wellington's cause, as they eventually lost the match, 29 points to 79.

Auckland now lead the series four matches to two. (Inter-region match summary)
