Three finals played at Umina on 'Super Saturday'

Umina Beach Men's Bowling Club has played three of its finals in a "Super Saturday" competition on September 12.

They were the Minor Singles, the Veteran Singles and the Minor Pairs championships, played what club president Mr Peter Springett described as "a great afternoon for bowls, with the sun shining".

Jim Phillips became the 56th winner of the club's Minor Singles championship, playing against Grant Watson.

"After a wobbly start, losing seven shots on the first two ends, Grant recovered to get himself back in the game," said Mr Springett.

"The score was neck and neck throughout, with Jim just managing to maintain a small lead, until the end."

The final score was 31-22.

Six-time club champion Allan Rhodes took out the Veteran Singles championship won against current veterans' champion Peter Springett by 22-8 in a first to 21-plus event.

This was only the second time this event has been held for the over-70s bowlers, which includes a large number of the club's members.

A former club champion, Peter Springett was no match for Allan on the day.

It was a hard-fought narrow win for John Hall and Terry Murphy in Umina's Minor Pairs final against Larry Johnston and Warren Brooks.

"Larry and Warren stormed out of the blocks to take a 13-2 lead after just a few ends, leaving John and Terry with and up-hill battle to get back into the game."

The pair "managed to snatch the lead and cling to it" to finish with a final score of 22-21.
