Tuross Head Bowls news

Joel Hilliard and Peter Davies have continued their domination of the 2020 Championships when they teamed with Michael Challice to win the Triples title. In one semi-final Des Jackson, Col Fletcher and Lawrie Riley combined well to defeat Ivan Balentovic, Jon Green and Peter Macdonald. In the other, Challice, Davies and Hilliard proved too strong for Doug Williams, Alan McLeod and John Monks.

The final was played in perfect conditions with the green playing exceptionally well. The first half of the game was extremely close. After 13 ends the score was locked at 8 all. On ten of these ends the sides were separated by a single shot. On several ends Riley played outstanding shots to keep his team in the game. The game continued in the same vein for the next 7 ends but Hilliard’s side started to gain the upper hand. In these ends Challice, in particular, played some very telling bowls to put the pressure on the opposition. By the 20th end Hillard had set up a 16 – 10 advantage.

The 21st end was crucial – Hilliard managed to score four shots to extend the lead. Despite Riley quickly replying with 3 shots on the next end his team could not consolidate. Hilliard was able to win the last three ends to claim the match 26 – 13. In the end it was the experience of the Champions that made the difference. Peter Davies played well all match with his consistency proving the difference between the teams. Jackson, Fletcher and Riley were far from disgraced in a very entertaining tussle. Well done to the Champions!
