Bowls In Focus : March April 2011
However, and this is where the story of the final unravels, Salmon, Whana, Middlemo and Davey went on a scor- ing rampage which saw them score twenty-two shots to two over the last twelve ends. At the other end of the green Ar- nold Nadelman, Gail’s husband, also had his hands full with Nicole Shortis and her rink. At one stage after lunch Arnold trailed 7-25 before his side rallied with 10 shots in three ends to loom just eight in arrears. No problem for Shortis, who drove brilliantly and displayed deft touch with her draw. With brimming confidence in her players, and with lead Moira Rayner enjoying a purple patch, Shortis ticked up another sev- en shots over the last five rotations to claim an emphatic 15-shot win. Sandwiched in between these two matches experienced divas Denese Brick and Jan Hurst were engaged in their own crowd-pleasing encounter. Cour tesy of a well-crafted five on the 12th end, when scores were reasonably tight, Brick’s rink always appeared in control of this affair. However, Hurst and her girls had an impact between ends 15 and 20 when they added seven shots to two, to be just two in arrears at 18-20 with five to play. Retaliation in the form of two singles and a three over the next three saw Brick’s rink restore order and again move to a comfortable lead at seven in front. But, with the Glenroy side barn- storming home across the green Hurst, who has been the driving force behind this emerging powerhouse in recent times, added the finishing touches with inspirational counts of three and two to put the result beyond doubt. - David Allen Bowls In Focus 21 FOR ALL YOUR BOWLING NEEDS SUPPLIERS OF ALL MAJOR BRANDS: SHOP 4, 152 BELLARINE HWY NEWCOMB VIC 3219 (cnr Coppards Road) Ph.03 5248 0856 Fax 035248 1526 HENSELITE TAYLORS DRAKES PRIDE GREENMASTER DOMINO CATHEAD AND MANY MORE DEMO BOWLS AVAILABLE TO TRY BEFORE YOU BUY IMPORTANT NOTICE ESSENDON BOWLS CLUB INC.
