Sara Xuereb places second to win Silver Medal at the European Youth Championsh­ips


Sara Xuereb wins the silver medal, improving on her previous bronze, at the EYC currently being held in Vienna.

After winning her squad with a brilliant 208 average, she went on to place 3rd overall amongst 65 players.

In the semi final she disposed of German bowler Nele Niehusenan­d with ease, and went on to face the overall leader, Victoria Kashirskay­a from Russia, in a pulsating neck and neck game, which was finally decided in the last frame where Xuereb unfortunat­ely left a split that allowed the Russian bowler to win.

Xuereb now goes on to bowl the Masters on Easter Sunday.
