Open Club Champion, Jarrod Horner, has challenger for his crown living under the same roof – his brother Jesse.
The two times Junior titleholder bolted home in the March pointscore to pick up maximum points in a fight to the finish eight man final.
The Horner brothers, not to mention their dad Jack, have long been standout performers at Shoes. But this year Jesse has jumped from the Junior Division to Open to give the older brigade even more to worry about!
Jesse dominated the Alley lefts to seize the first placing ahead of a barnstorming Matty Cook, Reece Moffat, Brad Wiseman, Jarrod, Michael Samuels, Daniel Marchant and Tyler Barnes.
The waves were “on” all day, giving competitors plenty of rip roaring lines to shred.
Despite finishing down the list, Jarrod holds the lead going into the April showdown on 7-8 April.
Nathan Hatheier was in solid form to triumph in the junior final, ahead of Ben Boylan and Ned Coleman. Nathan leads the title race.
The March Groms was an historic occasion – five heats were staged to get to the semis and final!
Eathan Jackson had the last word, taking lines honours from Travis Heaps, Dion Earle, Lachlan Hickey, Sam Schriek and Shannon Hatheier.
