Men’s Bowls Report 22/1/18

We are back into another bowling year. and there were some good matches over the weekend. In major singles Glen Farrell surprised everyone including himself when he scored a decisive victory over Russell Johns. Russell led early before Glen scored on five ends in a row and kept on with it for a 31 to 19 win. In minor singles Mick Mace had a great 31 to 17 win over Bill Burrows. I think this  may be Micks first win in comp bowls, well done. Also in minor singles Bill Dexter had a  comfortable win over Peter Ahoy by 31 to 10. In consistency singles Reg Nielson scored a ten on the last end for a  154 to 136 win over JohnWaters. John had the e better game of the two earlier in the game but Reg stuck in for his win.
