Tuross Head Womens Bowling Club news

The Major and Minor Womens' Bowls Singles Championship final matches were played recently at Tuross Head.

A relative newcomer to bowls, Lorraine Johnston demonstrated her skills on the green by taking out the Minor Singles trophy, defeating runner- up Kathy Gallacher. Lorraine is going to be a force to be reckoned with in the future as she constantly displays consistent, thoughtful bowling with a calm demeanor and great sportsmanship. Congratulations Lorraine!

A delighted and extremely talented Rita Downie was the eventual winner in the Major Singles, having played some skilled opponents in the earlier rounds to make the final. It was a Downie/Downey girls affair. Rita got off to a great start, leading 8- 1 after 7 ends. Marg fought back to lead 15-14 after 20 ends, but Rita steamed ahead picking up 10 more 24-15. Marg got 2 more on the second last end 24-17. Marg was holding 4 when a magnificent last bowl from Rita picked up 1, giving her a beautiful end to the game 25-17. It was a great game played in a friendly but competitive spirit with encouragement from lots of supporters on the sideline. Congratulations Rita Downie!
