First half sets up for win
WONDAI’S Caro lWatters and Cheryl Lorkin were on a roll as they bowled over their Kingaroy competitors Di Reed and Irene Smith in the Burnett Lawn Bowls Champion of Club championships on Tuesday.
As the pairs game concluded 19-14 in Wondai’s favour, Watters, who had been nursing a headache, declared it a relief to be over.
“We wanted to do better in the second half; it was a forgettable second half,” Watters said.
Not so the first half. “The green got faster and it was running so smoothly. You’d think it would be the right length, but it goes on,” she said.
Watters said their victory came with a combination of concentration, confidence and communication, such as Lorkin accepting her direction on how to place a bowl even when Lorkin couldn’t clearly see how the play would work.
Watters and Lorkin will represent the Burnett district in the zone championships for the third time.
For opposing skip Dianne Reed, it was a “good game, thoroughly being beaten by the other team”.
Reed and partner Irene Smith were stuck on 13 for some time, and then “we did that five”.
“We lost the five in one end, and at the end of the game it was too hard to pick it up,” Reed said.
