Bayleys Real Estate Hugh Moss junior pairs bowls title at Stratford-Avon

on Monday 9th March.

The final of the event turned into a real nail-biter, with the ultimate honours going to Evan JONES (Fitzroy) and Steve SABINE (Inglewood).  They scored the necessary shot on the extra end to pip Mark HAWKEN (Tower) and Luca DOBSON (Hawera Park) 15-14 in the decider, which was played in light rain.  However, the score could have very easily been the other way around.  On the extra end, JONES, with two bowls to play, found himself four down on a long head.

Playing overdraw weight and a little narrow, he pushed into a short bowl of SABINE and rolled it approximately three metres in for shot. DOBSON had an attempted run shot to dislodge the counter but missed.  It was a frustrating end for HAWKEN and DOBSON.  They led 9-3 after seven of the 16 ends in the final before JONES and SABINE found their touch and began to draw close. JONES and SABINE, in fact, hit the lead 14-11 with two ends to play.  However, a brace and a single to HAWKEN and DOBSON tied the game up and forced it into overtime.

In the semifinals that were completed on Sunday, HAWKEN and DOBSON were 21-12 victors over Paritutu’s Tom and Amanda CREHAN, while JONES and SABINE defeated the 2019 champions, Brian PEARCE and Ian PARKER (Stratford-Avon), 17-9.
