Bowls In Focus : October 2010
Bowls In Focus 13 of Noelene Abe and Kerry Anderson finished in third, despite a 20-shot walloping at the hands of Tocumwal’s Judy Cosgrove and Effie Eaton in the final round. Best performed Victorians were locals Sandra Connolly and Marilyn Stephenson who finished eighth. The Moama pairing topped the table after four rounds but dropped the next two rounds. However, a strong 14-shot victory over Kay Smith from Club Mulwala and Chris Felle from Lalor was enough to put them in the money. The only other Victorian pairing to finish in the top 10 was 2007 champions Gayle and Brooke Edwards from Keilor, who came in ninth. They will rue their two- shot loss to former Glenroy teammates Jan Hurst and Judy Davey in the final round. It cost them third place outright and we won’t add to their disappointment by mentioning the difference in dollars between third and ninth. On an adjacent rink to the Edwards versus Hurst encounter spectators enjoyed a fine match between perennial favourites Gordana Baric and Margaret Sumner, who featured in Australia’s gold medal four at the 1996 world championships in England. It was terrific to see the two former international teammates in action with Baric and daughter Sue Hudson from the Mulgrave Country Club claiming the points by four over Terang-based Sumner and long-time sidekick Pat Boyd from Warrnambool in a crowd-pleasing 15-end battle. Other Victorians to claim five wins from their seven starts were Rushworth’s Jean Sprague and Bev Cahill from Shepparton Park (+37); Hurst and Davey from Glenroy (+36); Tocumwal’s Cosgrove and Eaton (+31); and the Deniliquin combination of Jill Grimshaw and Fay Munnerley who finished on 23 shots-up. A total of 50 teams competed in this year’s classic, and although day one was washed-out, the field managed to complete the seven rounds in fine style. Entrants arrived at Moama from six different states, with Victoria having 31 teams, South Australia eight, six from WA, three from Tasmania and singles from both Queensland and NSW. - David Allen 2010 Women’s Invitation Premier Pairs at Moama Bowling Club 1st Karen Murphy, Kay Moran (NSW) 14 points +92 shots, 2nd Carmen Anderson (Qld), Lisa Prideaux (NSW) 12 +60, 3rd Noelene Abe, Kerry Anderson (WA) 12 +39, 4th Maria Rigby, June Beverley (Qld) 11 +32, 5th Kerry Treloar, Wendy Clarke (SA) 11 +28, 6th Roma Dunn, Judy Edwards (WA) 11 +26, 7th Penny Landherr, Janet Cocks (SA) 11 +11, 8th Sandra Connolly, Marilyn Stephenson (Moama) 10 +68, 9th Gayle Edwards, Brooke Edwards (Keilor) 10 +40, 10th Dianne Green, Jackie Gardiner (SA) 10 +38.
