Its an amazing day for Post Section in the Auckland Men’s Triples and Women’s Singles today at Carlton Cornwall Bowls.
WOMEN’S SINGLES SEMI FINALS:
The semi final between Carol Bennett (Onehunga & Districts) and Kirsty Hill (Onehunga & Districts) was a close one! Bennett was first up on the score board and held a small lead right through to the 14th end when Hill tied the game up 12-12. From here Hill took the lead and looked strong but Bennett came back to tie the game up again in the 18th end 16-16. Again Hill took the lead but in a massive end to the game Bennett won a 4 in the 22nd end to win the game and her spot into the Final 21-19.
An amazing semi final between Karen Hema (Carlton Cornwall) and Aggie Motu (Onehunga & Districts). It was neck and neck right from the start, neither player allowing the other a good look in. From the 14th end Motu took a good lead only to have the experienced Hema chip away and make to within 1 point of Motu but just couldn’t manage to finish – the win going to Aggie Motu 21-18. Great game!
