Freyberg proves hard slog

Otago wrapped up a disappointing Freyberg masters tournament at Timaru yesterday, coming home without a win, and finishing bottom of the table.

The Otago quintet scored its first points of the week when it halved its match against Waikato on Thursday afternoon.

Mike Wray and Paul Hubbard had 1-up victories at the top of the Otago order against Waikato, while Aaron Charteris halved his match at No5 with Aaron Lister.

Otago had the bye yesterday morning and then took on Taranaki in the afternoon. It grabbed another half as its match with Taranaki ended all tied up.

Hubbard took a 2-up victory at No1 while Charteris had a convincing 5 and 4 win.

Wray, playing at No3, squared his match-up with Aarun Langton.

Otago picked up the wooden spoon just behind Taranaki.

The tournament was decided by eight rounds of matchplay.

After Wellington led for the first half of the tournament the title was won by Bay of Plenty, which came steaming home in the final two days.
