Bowls In Focus : February 2011
Bowls In Focus 19 to two strong wins and 34 shots-up. However, in cameo of sibling rivalry, Margaret’s sister Shirley Brown and her City Memorial clubmate Karina Ellery kept them to a draw after the 15-ends to drop the local greats to fifth place. In something of a paradox, Brown and Ellery’s point for the tie would be their only collect in the event. Sumner and Boyd, who were faced with the tough- est draw in the field, signified their intentions in the opening round with a slashing 18-shot victory over state players and hot favourites Robyn Thomassen from Grangeburn and Clayton’s Paula Wood. Ironically, despite being framed as the side to beat by most good judges on Classic eve, the first day would be an aberration for Thomassen and Wood, who failed to win a match and came in with a 35-shot deficit in 30th place. However, showing the class that has taken both to the top, the pair recovered to win their second day starts and climb eight spots in the standings. Another team to move up the leader board after being mauled by Sumner and Boyd on day one was Yarraville Footscray’s Betty Hassold and Frances Hall, who were languishing in 21st place after round two, but played their way into the top ten over the next three rounds. Bulldog clubmates Edith Grinham and Judy Nardel- la, the 2009 winners, also faced a tough draw to finish mid-pack, while Julie Ross and Leah Whiffen from Golden Square, who won in 2008, were another team to be handed a challenging five-round assignment. Mind you, there’s no easy games in this company, which stamps the Australia Day Classic at Warrnam- bool as one of the best. - David Allen • Above: Colac City’s Rebecca McMahon goes on the forehand at Warrnambool. • Right: Val Hardy from Belmont was one of the overnight leaders. • Far Right: Kangaroo Flat’s Gwen Waegli was a fine performer over the two days.
