Mixed fours championship held in the heat
The final of the Umina Beach Bowling Club's mixed fours championship was held on January 14 in hot, gusty conditions.
Despite the conditions, the two teams comprising Carol Hawkesworth, Joan Murphy, Steve Stead and Terry Murphy, against Jean Saggus, Gloria Bosward, Mark Speerin, and Rob Andersen, saw both teams handle the extreme weather to play an exciting final.
Rob Andersen's team raced away to a strong lead of 16-6.
Terry Murphy's team then won the next six ends bringing the score to 16-13.
With a four and three on the next three ends, Rob Andersen's team put the game out of reach.
Despite winning the last two ends, it was not enough for Mr Murphy's side to catch up and the final result was a win to team Andersen, 23 to 17.
