Ettalong pair named champion of champions
Ettalong Bowling Club's Nathan Malloy and Lee Trethowan are this year's Bowls Central Coast Champion of Club Champion Pair.
They achieved this honour in a victory in the final against Umina's Champions Glen Simington and Shane Starkey, which was played at Ettalong on September 8.
Malloy and Trethowan secured a commanding 18-4 victory.
"As often happens the drama of the 2019 championship was in the earlier rounds," said Bowls Central Coast secretary Mr Doug Rose.
"Glen and Shane won their quarter final by one shot over Breakers' Michael Maycock and Darren Hooper.
"Then they played a semi-final against Bateau Bay's Brett Williams and Grant Spurway who had a very hard fought one-point win in their quarter final over Wyong pair Wayne Hesling and Mark Wheatley.
"The Umina pair played impeccable bowls in windy conditions in the semi-final to defeat the Bateau Bay duo 26-8.
"Meanwhile Nathan and Lee had been travelling comfortably through the early rounds until the semi-final when they faced up against Terrigal's Chayne Edwards and Rod Rewko.
"All four players played sensational bowls in very windy conditions.
"Terrigal got away to an early 8-1 point lead, but Ettalong came back to finally draw the game 19-all after 19 ends.
"Lee and Nathan went on to win the semi 21-20 only in the lead after the last end."
