The 2021 Singles championships:
The weekend saw many great bowls and close games. Two games that stood out early in the day were Mignon getting the better of Jill who was going for back-to-back titles and a tightly fought game between Keiran & Popeye with the latter getting over the line 22 – 20.
Due to numbers, “BYE’s” were prominent so most players advanced to R2.
Rd 2 winners were:
Katherine def Sharon
Wendy def Linda
Margie def Vicki
Mignon def Jill
Dave def Tony
Popeye def Jason
Charlie def Bryan
Bruce def Josh
The Men’s Prelim saw Popeye and Bruce advance to the final with wins over Dave and Charlie respectively.
The Ladies’ draw saw Mignon and Margie advance with wins over Katherine and Wendy respectively.
The Ladies’ final saw Margie take an early lead which Mignon just couldn’t reel back and Margie taking her first Singles title with a convincing win.
The Men’s final was played early on Sunday morning and both Bruce and Popeye brought their A game. It was a battle from start to end and with the board showing Bruce up 20 – 18, Popeye put 3 within 6inchs of the kitty which would snatch the win but Bruce trailed the kitty to his own back bowl to claim another Singles title.
With their wins, both Margie and Bruce have earned a trip to Darwin to play in the NT Champion of Champions event. We wish them the very best.
On a final note, thank you to Al, Mandy and those bowlers who didn’t advance who gave up their time to assist in marking several games and helping out where they could.
