Victorious Triple Bring the Heat

by Cameron Harris

Daniel Brown, Daniel Trewhella and Shane Loftus are the 2018 DyenamicMen’s State Triples Champions adding to their ever growing list of titles.

They defeated the in-form South Perth side of Neale Griffin, Mitch Biglin and Farley Anderson 19-10 in the final at Bassendean on Sunday.

It wasn’t a game of big numbers but instead it was the weight of the number of ends won that got Brown across the line.

His side won 11 of the 17 ends played including the first five which gave them a great head start.

From their all they had to do was make sure they didn’t concede anything silly and the title was always likely to be theirs from that point.

Courtesy of a three on the third end Brown held a 7-0 lead at the end of the fifth.

Griffin picked up a two and a one in succession but a four to Brown put his side back to square one.

That four was the catalyst for another run, this one last four ends, which put Brown up 15-3 with seven more ends scheduled.

Griffin was able to win four of the next five ends but were denied the numbers they needed, only managing ones and twos.

After 16 ends the score read 18-10 to Brown meaning Griffin needed another two just to force the game to its final end.

As it was it was Brown who picked up shot on the end and wrapped up the title on end early at 19-10.

That makes six titles won by Brown and Trewhella together and a second with Loftus in the team following last years fours.

This marks a third triples title for Brown, a second for Trewhella and a first triples crown for Loftus.
