Bowls: Close win after a comeback

IN the mixed fours championship, the closest of the contests was that of Narelle Foy, Greg Bartlett (as a sub for Col Carter), Claudia and David O'Donnell up against Jim and Robyn Gillogly playing with Lillian Cross and Alan Cox.

The worthy winners were Narelle and her crew by a shot 16-15 after they had come back from being 13-6 down on the 14th end to sneak into the next round.

Graeme Ireland teamed up with Peter Williams, Margaret Hinton and Nancy Sandford to down Daniel and Bill Leadbeater who played with Pat Marcus and Pam Weir 20-13. 

This was an even contest up to the 14th end when the score favoured Graeme's team by a shot 10-9. 

Peter Hall, Chris Kane, Leonie Gilford and Dianne Lewis progress after downing Laurie Mullen, Denise Polley, Elaine and Peter Holden 22-16. 

On the 18th end there was a shimmer of light for Laurie when there was a difference of only three shots but by picking up four shots on the 20th end that was it for the game. 

Tom Moore, Narelle Boyd and Laurelle and Glen Dennes had a comfortable victory over Rex Dawson, John Black, Tina Rushworth and Gwen Bell 35-11.

After being down 10-1 after only six ends Rex and his outfit did get within three shots of the opposition on the 12th end but that was the end of the road for them. 

This coming Sunday morning it is anticipated that the semi final will be played.

In the remaining game Daniel Leadbeater, Mal Cannon and Peter Hall just got home 18-15 against Ian Scarr, Rex Thomas and Guy Watts.
