2015 Victorian Open – day 2 women’s
Star power and family ties.
The last eight of the 2015 Victorian Open women’s pairs is packed with quality, as well as two mother-and-daughter teams.
State stars Chloe Stewart and Tiffany Brodie – who narrowly beat Elise Cowan and 2014 women’s singles champion Carla Odgers 12-11 on their way to the quarter-finals, head a high-class field for Thursday’s matches.
Melbourne BC mother and daughter Louise and Tayla Morison enjoyed a stellar day two of the Vic Open, winning through their sectionals and then beating defending champions Jan Morton and Jane Ritchie in their first knockout.
Then they took to the undercover green at Shepparton Park BC, and as the late afternoon sun streamed in, they shone again to knock over Smeaton BC’s Jenny Toose and Helen Mizzeni 20-9.
Also in the quarter-finals are Lalor mum and daughter Gayle and Brooke Edwards, who beat Leopold Sportsman’s Nicole Shortis and Jane McMenaman in the last 16.
Lisa Phillips (Coatesville) teamed with Melissa Larcombe to make the quarter-finals, adding to her last 16 women’s singles passage booked the previous day.
And Moama’s Sandra Connolly and Marilyn Stephenson also won through.
