20 Mar 2016
We now have our four Semi-Finalists in the Mens 1-5 yr Singles and our two 1-5yr Women's Singles Finalists.
Ross Fraider (Avondale) started out strong and maintained a great lead throughout the game to beat Aaron Lambly (East Tamaki) 21-3.
Kaarem Al-Darra (Blockhouse Bay) is still playing strongly winning his game against Jeremy Reynolds (Mt Albert/Sandringham) 21-6.
Adam Allan(Glen Eden) is our 3rd Semi-Finalist beating his club mate Jeremy Brosnan (21-11).
A very very close game between Odie Walter (Balmoral) and Gary Cotter (Pt Chevalier) going end for end, but Walter taking the final winning end 21-20.
In the Womens 1-5yr Singles Semi Final we had Sheila Putu (Mt Wellington) playing Chelsea Farley (Balmoral Women's) and what a great game! Putu a second year bowler was 10-20 down in the 18th end with Farley, a first year bowler having charged into the lead. Putu was determined to not let Farley take the final end and played some stunning bowls to win the last 7 ends and came back to win the game in the 25th end with a 3 - the final score being 21-20.
The second Women's Semi-Final was Janine Young(Carlton Cornwall) vs Marion Hakaraia (Te Atatu Peninsula). This was another great final to watch with some great ends played. Young took an early lead and was ahead 20-10 in the 20th end, from here Hakaraia found her rhythm and started to put some pressure on Young taking 2 strong high scoring ends. But the late charge was not quite enough and Young won the game 21-17.
Congratulations to Janine Young(Carlton Cornwall) and Sheila Putu (Mt Wellington) who are through to the Auckland Womens 1-5yr Singles Final.
