Karen claims Neerim ti­tle

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - GAZETTE SPORT -

Karen Sheers is Neerim Dis­trict Bowl­ing Club’s 2018/19 women’s sin­gles cham­pion af­ter win­ning the fi­nal over Chris Ho­gan on Fri­day.

Karen and Chris had an early start at 8.30am to avoid the fore­cast high tem­per­a­tures.

It was Chris who got off to a good start, win­ning the first two ends. Karen picked up a three on the third end and pro­ceeded to make the ends long whilst bowl­ing beau­ti­fully to jump out to a 14/2 lead on the eighth end.

Try­ing to make the ends even longer, Karen went too long with the jack. This al­lowed Chris to bring it back to a shorter length and she won the end.

How­ever, Karen was bowl­ing su­perbly and led 19/3 on the 11th end.

Chris fought back, pick­ing up five shots over the next two ends.

Both ladies con­tin­ued to bowl well but Karen al­ways man­aged to have the shot and, by the 18th end, Karen had run out the win­ner 25/8.
