Sil­ver lin­ing to de­feat in Glas­gow

South Waikato News - - SPORTS / TE PAPA HAKINAKINA -

Lynda Ben­nett lead the New Zealand mixed triples para-bowls team to a sil­ver medal at the Com­mon­wealth Games in Glas­gow.

New Zealand made a char­ac­ter­is­tic slow start, be­ing down 7-1 be­fore claw­ing their way back to 7-7.

A dra­matic fi­nal end saw the lead change four times.

Lead Ben­nett started the ball rolling, draw­ing shot for New Zealand be on level terms, and skip Mark Noble played a screamer with his last bowl, only to see the South African skip play a blinder with his last bowl. That was the win­ning and los­ing of the game.
