UNDER 5'S ROOKIE EVENT FOR WOMEN. WINNER CROWNED IN A GREAT FINAL
MANY THANKS TO
BOWLING CLUB INSURANCE BROKERS FOR SUPPORTING THIS EVENT

u5finalistmed


Our Club has a very strong commitment to the development of sport for women. As part of this commitment a great new tournament was held this weekend the 31st July & 1st August. Called the Under 5's it was open the female players who have been playing for less than 5 years. It was a great opportunity for bowlers to test their ability against players of the same experience.

The final was held on Sunday afternoon and commenced under fine skies with freshening winds. The two finalists, Michelle Treadwell and Joanne Warner, had to settle their early nerves in front of the large crowd. They also had the added pressure of the final being marked by well known Australian International Karen Murphy and Scottish International Kay Moran supporting from the sidelines. Michelle won the first two ends and went to a lead of three shots. Joanne hit back winning the next two ends. There was nothing between the players for the next few ends with the scores tied at nine all after eight ends. Joanne held the lead for a three ends but Michelle kept knocking on the door. Michelle reached  16 shots, just one short of the required 17 but could not get the extra shot to win. Joanne was not going to let the final slip from her grasp and scored two shots and then, one shot on the next end just two shots short of Michelle. With both players playing excellent bowls evey bowl was crictial. However Michelle was able to snatch victory getting the one shot required. Well done to both players on an great final. Also many thanks to Karen Murphy for marking the final and undertaking the presentation. 

Earlier in the day the quarter finals and semi finals were held.  Results of the quarter finals were Sharon Scarcella 17 Denita Payne 16; Michelle Treadwell 17 Monica Burt 10; Robin Beaumont 17 Gaelene Scanlon 14; Joanne Warner 17 Anne Pill 13. The draw for the semi final was Sharon Scarella v Michelle Treadwell and the other semi final is Robin Beaumont v Joanne Warner. The winners were Michelle Treadwell 17 shots to 15 and Joanne Warner 17 shots to 14. Both very close games.

A full field of 42 players arrived on Saturday morning under rainy conditions. Many had travelled long distances and were concerned that play may not go ahead. But conditions improved and the first of the three pool games of 14 sections began just a little after 9.00am. There were some great bowls in the pool rounds as the players fought for the top position that enabled them to proceed to the knockout stage. Even if you did not win your section the next top two players went through. A full result of the pool games is available
here. The knockout games commenced right on time at 3.00 pm. Those who had proceeded through the pool games were facing their 4th game of the day virtually playing non stop for 6 hours. The scores in the knockout round of 16 were: Denita Payne 17 Yolanta Ackroyd 8; Sharron Scarcella 17 Hillary Jenkins 13; Monica Burt 17 Kim Mason 7; Michelle Treadwell 17 Seleste Skelton 7; Robin Beaumont 17 Anthia Hart 12; Gaelene Scanlon 17 Janet McLean 12; Joanne Warner 17 Linda Pedersen 4; Anne Pill 17 Joy Jorssen 11.
