North Mackay Ladies Bowls News

The final of the B singles and the open singles were played on North Mackay greens on June 21.

The open singles game was between Nuggy Pratt and Lorna Bowers. Nuggy got away from Lorna early, but Lorna managed to come back, but unfortunately just a bit too late, so the winner was Nuggy Pratt.

The B singles was between Maryann Bartolo and Brenda Trannore. In much the same vein as the open ladies; Maryann got away to a substantial lead early, but Brenda clawed her way back to only lose by a few points. The games were exciting to watch and spectators were in awe of such great sportsmanship.
