Billie Maas advised of the Belrose Ladies success.

In a nail-biting final at St Ives Bowling Club yesterday, the Belrose team of Lorraine Hazzard, Judith Carpenter, Kay King and Patricia Tan overcame being down 3-13 after 12 ends, to win the 2017 Open Fours Championship 26-20 over the Neutral Bay team of Lesley Szumylo, Midori Matsuoka, Maggie Jay and Lou Hamshere.

The turning point came on the 13th end, when a springing of the jack delivered the Belrose team a 4, and by the 16th end there was only one shot the difference. Then a 5 to Belrose saw them hit the lead 18-14, and they drew away further until Neutral Bay picked up 6 on the 19th end to regain a 1-shot lead.

A successful last bowl conversion by Patricia Tan in the 20th gave them 2 to go into the last end 1 ahead, then each member of the Belrose team played steadily on the last end, claiming 5 shots for a decisive win.

Well done Ladies, a great result for the club. Whilst on the subject we would like to wish our team in the Senior Fours the best of luck tomorrow when they play North Sydney in the final at Turramurra tomorrow, "Go Girls". Of course everyone is invited to go there to support the team.
