Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT - ROHAN O’NEIL

THE Bendigo Bank Shield has re­turned to North Queens­land af­ter the re­gion’s top fe­male bowlers took out the three- day car­ni­val late last week.

The Sub­ur­ban Bowls Club in Townsville played host to the an­nual event, which saw five rep­re­sen­ta­tive teams duke it out over three days.

There was no stop­ping the North Queens­land Dis­trict Ladies Bowls As­so­ci­a­tion ( NQDLBA) as they won seven of their eight games to claim brag­ging rights for the next year.

NQDLBA vice- pres­i­dent Carolyn Huddy said it was a great achieve­ment from all the women as they im­proved on last year’s sec­ond place to lift the tro­phy for the first time in three years.

“We played eight games and only lost one and the girls all bowled ter­rific right through­out the car­ni­val,” she said.

“It’s the most pres­ti­gious car­ni­val for the year and our North Queens­land girls came from Bowen, Ing­ham, Townsville and Ayr.”

The vic­tory con­tin­ued the good form of the team from ear­lier this year, with the North Queens­land side fin­ish­ing third in di­vi­sion two at the state dis­tricts cham­pi­onships in Bris­bane.
