The finals rounds of the Bowls North West Pennant were played in near perfect conditions.
Latrobe finished the season as minor premiers, easily accounting for Wynyard defeating them on all rinks.
The big winners for the Demons were the Anthony Johns, Philip Moore, Erin Moore, Neville Smith rink who defeated John Neal 33-15.
Burnie with David Gamble leading the way, made sure they would stay in the double chance position by defeating South Burnie on three rinks by 12 shots.
Ulverstone shared the rinks but easily defeated the Devonport Eagles by 22 shots.
An interesting occurrence in this game was the Mike Higginson rink losing an eight but still managing to win their game by one shot.
Penguin finished their season off with a win over the disappointing Port Sorell combination winning by ten shots after sharing the rinks.
With the pennant now over we start the final series with the first semi-final or knock-out final between South Burnie and Ulverstone getting underway on Sunday at Wynyard.
As mentioned South has involved themselves in an end-of-season slump, losing their past three games.
Despite this their effort on Saturday against Burnie was reasonable and with their team once again nearing full strength this scribe is placing his hard earned on them to end the Robins' season.
The second semi-final between Latrobe and Burnie should be a bottler.
Little separates the two sides as indicated by the ladder which shows the Demons on top by eight points.
Latrobe finished the season as minor premiers ... accounting for Wynyard ...
Both teams are experienced final contenders.
Having to make a selection we will stick with the Tigers to win by single digits.

The big winner for Latrobe was the Michael Gaffney, Mary Beaumont, Colin Stephenson, Kevan Gaffney rink who won 39-12 over Peter Sands.
