BOWLS NEWS 16/07/2019
In an absolutely crackerjack match played in bitterly extreme icy weather conditions on Sunday afternoon, the 2018 triples champions Barney Reardon, Tom French & Mark Maynard were sent plummeting out of the 2019 title race when they were defeated by gallant underdogs Richard Erkelens, John Peterson & Johnny Heyen 19 shots to 17. The underdogs led brilliantly by skipper Erkelens held their own against their more fancied opponents for the first seven ends, but with the score five all the Reardon led trio clicked into gear scoring five unanswered shots to go out to a 10-5 lead after ten ends. Erkelens side then hit their straps & played some wonderful bowls scoring ten shots to Reardon's four (including a 5) to go to a 15-14 lead after sixteen. Barney's side scored single shots on three of the next four end to lead 17-16 with one end to play, but Heyen played an absolute beauty to draw the shot & force the match into an extra end. Richard's side to the jubilation of his two partners scored two shots on that extra end to win the match & move into the next round, leaving their opposition lamenting on what could have been.
