MPBC’s 2021 Finals Campaign has begun!
What a hugely successful year Murrumbeena Park has had on the greens this season! Nearly all sides have made finals; the Saturday Pennant 6-a-side (Summer) unfortunately got knocked out in the semi-final against Bennettswood, but a top effort to get there. Thursday’s new 7-a-side Midweek Pennant team also made it through to their semi-final last week but were only just out-bowled by Bentleigh (47-36). Congrats to all who helped get those sides to finals and all who battled it out on the day.
Now onto this weekend’s first round of Saturday Pennant Finals. What a fantastic result to have both Side 1 and Side 2 finish 2nd on their respective ladders (Division 3 & 5). We got so close to top spot, with Side 1 managing to steal 1st place from Mt Waverley for just a week, but they soon took it back to finish on top. But two teams sitting in 2nd place isn’t half bad, and the best result we’ve seen in a number of years.
It’s so great for our club and our members to have both sides playing semi-final at home this Saturday 20th March. The greens are looking magnificent, and we’ll be pulling out all stops to get two teams playing in Grand Finals on Sunday.
Go Parker’s – let’s bring home those flags!!
