Senior Pairs Champions 2018

Senior Pairs champions 2018

Making it a “Belrose Double” this week, the club’s Benita Andrews and Patricia Tan have claimed the Senior Pairs Championship, only days after another Belrose team took out the Open Pairs event. Benita and Patricia took on Turramurra’s Jan Martin and Jenny Wallis in the final and, from the opening ends, continued the good form they have displayed all week. Benita, in particular, drew close to the jack with her opening bowl on most of the ends, putting their opponents under pressure. Because of this, it took a few ends for Turramurra to get on the scoreboard; once they got underway, Jan and Jenny played some lovely bowls but were frequently taken out again as the Belrose players stretched out their lead to claim the match 21 – 6. (It had been the same story in all their previous rounds — over the four matches, Benita and Patricia conceded an average of only 8 shots per game!) They will now contest the Region 15 play-off in July.
