Ettalong pair wins Champion Pairs title
Ettalong Memorial Bowling club edged out Umina Beach Men's Bowling Club to take out the Bowls Central Coast Champion of Club Champions Pairs competition.
Ettalong's Nathan Malloy and Lee Trethowan claimed the Champion Pairs title after beating Umina's Glen Simington and Shane Starkey 18 points to four.
"As often happens, the drama of this year's 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 Wamberal's Michael Maycock and Darren Hooper.
"Then they played a semi-final against Bateau Bay's Brett Williams and Grant Spurway who had a hard-fought one-point win in their quarter final over the high profile Wyong pair of 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 windy conditions.
"Terrigal got away to an early 8-1 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 ever in the lead after the last end," Mr Rose said.
