This morning Doug Shearer and David Warwick beat Eddie Oates and Rod Sugden 22-20 in the delayed final to last year’s Bowls Championship.
|David, Eddie, Doug, and Rod locked in mortal combat.|
A quick glance at the handicaps suggests these are four of the Club’s better players and this was borne out by some outstanding woods from each finalist and a close, enjoyable match for the spectators.
David and Doug drew first blood but fell behind at 5-4 before establishing leads of 12-6 and 15-8. Eddie and Rod then put four strong ends together, including a 3 and a 4, to nudge themselves in front at 17-15. David and Doug recovered quickly from this setback and, with Doug now going first, got the match levelled at 19 across. Eddie and Rod went straight back into the lead but David and Doug ultimately won with two good ends at the last.
