Karen claims Neerim title
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.
