Auckland Girls Secondary Schools Champs
28 Jun 2016
Played Monday in showery and windy conditions at Epsom Bowling Club.
Girls from Howick College, St Dominic's College and Mt Roskill Grammar braved the wintery conditions with all section play completed and play-offs through to the final.
First semi-final was between Paris Baker (Mt Roskill Grammar) and Michelle Greer (St Dominic's College). This was a tight match early on with Michelle initially leading Paris until a four on one end swung the game Paris's way. This was hard to recover from in a game over 45 minutes and Paris went on to win 13-7.
The second semi-final was between the Champion Pairs team-mates, Antonia Victor and Kate Cassidy (St Dominic's College). Antonia had earlier survived a scare in section play, needing to draw a third shot with her last bowl to overcome Dayna Gates (St Dominic's) to progress into the semis. This was not the case in this match however with Antonia getting away to an early lead she didn't relinquish, going on to win 13-3.
The Final between Paris Baker and Antonia Victor is yet to be played.
Congratulations to all girls who played, and thanks for coping with the poor weather conditions with a great attitude.
