|2016 Minor Singles Champion - Ian Betterridge|
Ladies Minor Singles
|Phil Coolican and Ian Betterridge|
Ian Betterridge has won the 2016 Minor Singles Championship from Phil Coolican 31 - 22. Ian had a tough match with Glen Richmond in the semi final and made his way to the final with a score of 31-29 over Glen. Phil Coolican played Paul Charge in the other semi final and the score of 31-30 over Paul tells it's own story. Well done to the Betterridge family this year - Phyllis Betterridge won the Ladies Minor Singles only weeks ago. Now, husband Ian has won the Mens Minor Singles to make it a double whammy for the duo!
The first of the 2016 Minor Singles Quarter Finals has been won by Paul Charge from Kevin Ivins 31 - 28. A hard fought match that gave no hint as to who would be the eventual winner until the very last bowls on the very last end. Congratulations to Paul Charge on his advancement to the semi final and well done Kevin for making him work very hard to get there.
Donn Brann and Warwick McDonald led the Club Pairs final all the way only to go down on the last end to the final bowl from Dale Kalms. The final score was 20-19. Warwick and Don played a great game against two very experienced campaigners who began to peg back the 16-6 deficit to come within striking distance of 19-15 with one end left to play. Last bowl and needing 5 to win, Dale Kalms played his best shot of the match to take out the opposition 3rd shot. This gave Luxford and Kalms 5 shots and the title of Cub Pairs Champions for 2016. Congratulations to all 4 players on an exciting match.
