Australian Pairs Final Update
Updated: May 17
With only 8 teams entering the Competition it started on Monday 15th May and continued to the Final on Wednesday 17th May, with one round each morning. Four Mijas and 1 Santa Maria teams were involved along with a team from Lauro and 2 from Benavista.
Monday: Quarter Finals
Barry Holt/David Prain beat v Doug Hall/Julie Hall (Benavista) with the last bowl of the game. This was an excellent game with the teams trading the lead several times and the Halls taking a single shot lead into the last end and were holding shot before Barrys last bowl took the jack back to their back bowls to win by 2 shots.
Juan Abeal/Bill Neal lost out to Simone Morgan/Mary Detheridge (Santa Maria) in the last end and could not overturn the 3 shot deficit.
Angela Holt/John Wilson beat Jack Gordon/Jan Heywood (Benavista). Mijas took control of the game mid way through the game but a spirited fight back took the game to the last end, but could only get 1 of the 7 shots needed to force an extra end.
Kevin Bravant/John Rimell lost within the distance against Ron Jones/Jeff Turner (Lauro) but the score line did not reflect how well our members played.
Ron and Jeff beat Angela and John W by a shot when the Mijas Pair failed to get the 3 required in the last end to force and extra end.
Simone and Pat beat David Prain and Barry on the 17th end.
Congratulations to Ron/Jeff (Lauro) beat Simone and Pat (Santa Maria) by a single shot on the last end in what was a closely contested game through out.
Thanks to Sheila and Bill for Umpiring the Competition. Also thanks to Jean for the Sandwiches and Cake for the finalists.
