Young fights through semi to take the title
Twenty-two Te Awamutu Bowling Club members took to the greens to battle out the mixed singles champion.
After five rounds the top four were found to contest the semi finals.
Frank Loomb came up against Janet Officer, prevailing 18-8.
Officer scored the first end by one, but then stalled to be behind 9-1.
A fight back in the middle of the match wasn’t enough and Loomb again pulled away over the final ends.
In the other semi it was a closer battle, requiring an extra deciding end after Judy Cato and Terry Young tied 11-11.
Young took one shot on the extra end to claim the match and go to the final.
Scoring was close for much of the match, although Young threatened to blow a 9-4 lead in the latter stages and had to claim a shot in the final end to force the tie.
He made easier work of the final, claiming the win 16-8.
A flier proved the difference — Young going 7-0 up after three ends, then 10-1 after six which proved too much to claw back.
He kept Loomb pointless for the last six ends, scoring one each time to pull away.
