BNWS 2 Bowl Champion of Champions Competition took place this morning (Sat 1st June) at North Shields West End BC.

We were down to only 6 entries today as we had 6 withdrawals for various reasons. However this did not affect the quality of play in the games.

2 rinks to play round 1 with the other 2 players getting a bye into the semi final.

Ann tried hard to keep in the game but Suzanne took the last 3 ends to finish on 16-10 to take her into the semi final.

This was a closely fought game. Bev started with a 2 on this first end. Suzanne took 3×1 on the following 3 ends and then Bev levelled the game to 3-3 after 5 ends. The game swung both ways and they were level again at 7-7 after 10 ends. Bev scored on the next 2 ends to take the lead again to 10- 7 on end 12. Bev kept the lead and by end 18 the score was 15-11.
