Best of the best tus­sle for ti­tle

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

BUR­NETT’S best fe­male lawn bowlers went bowl-to-bowl in the cham­pion of club cham­pi­ons’ sin­gles play­offs this week for the op­por­tu­nity to play in the zone car­ni­val next month.

In the first match of the car­ni­val, Bin­jour’s Brittany Wi­ley de­feated Wondai’s Ros Olig­muller 25-14.

Olig­muller, last year’s sin­gles cham­pion for the South Bur­nett district, said she jumped out to a 6-3 lead.

“Then I lost the plot a lit­tle bit while I was on six and Brittany got in front of me. She played a per­fect game,” she said.

Olig­muller, the Wondai sin­gles cham­pion, who will mark her 20th an­niver­sary of play­ing lawn bowls in Novem­ber, said anal­y­sis of each game was im­por­tant.

“You see how she (Wi­ley) works, you see how she can get her points, but some­times you lose your nerve,” she said.

Wi­ley, 14, the Bin­jour sin­gles cham­pion and a Queens­land un­der-15s sil­ver medal­list, con­firmed her strat­egy was to break up Olig­muller’s rhythm by “stretch­ing the ends”.

But even the best-laid plans can come un­stuck with a lack of con­cen­tra­tion, she said.

“In the mid­dle I went off my game and had to start again and get back into the rhythm,” she said.
