Congratulations to today's Major Pairs finalists in providing very entertaining bowls.
First off this morning, the second semi-final match had Gary Tyrell & Rod Gamble match skills against Gerard D'Costa & John Leonard. This was a closely fought match with ultimate winners Gary & Rod winning 26 to 25.
After a short lunch break, Gary & Rod took to the green again, this time against Keith Robinson and David Wilson (winners of first semi-final). The scores early on went point for point with scores 5 each after 5 ends. Keith & David made a small break to be 14:10 on 14 ends. From there Gary & Rod pressed hard to peg back the lead. After 19 ends, the scoreboard read 20:12 with Gary & Rod needing 8 level the score.
Final score 20:14. Full scorecard available here.
Hats off to all players persevering in the failing light (game finished at 5:40pm) - there were discussions of getting home flood lights!
Umpire for both games was Peter Eagle. Peter didn't have a busy day with only a couple of calls, he did however enjoy the display of high quality bowling in both games. Thanks Peter.
