2016 Victorian Open – Day 7
We started the day with excitement and expectations; we ended the day with a new line of Vic Open champions.
Men’s & Women’s Triples Finals were up first, and the first live streamed match was the Men’s Triples Final between Nick McIntyre, Luke Eddington, Graham Guy taking on Dane McKinnon, Liam Garlick-Adams and John McCarron. McIntyre, Eddington & Guy prevailed 13-8.
Playing alongside them was a preview of the Women’s Singles Final later in the day; as Kelly McKerihen faced off against Anne Miles.
McKerihen, along with Victoria Troster and Carla Krizanic on paper, were perhaps the more fancied trio. However Miles, along with her teammates Claire Sanders & Laureen Smith rose to the occasion, and won 16 shots to nine.
After a minute’s silence echoed around Shepparton Park Bowls Club for Remembrance Day, the next live final began on Rink One. The Mixed Pairs Final was contested between Julie Ross & Ian Ross against Sharon Steele & Michael Sims. Ross & Ross took a strong 6-1 lead early on, but thanks to a five-shot end & 15 out of the last 18 shots of the game, Sims & Steele leaped ahead and didn’t look back, winning the match 16-9.
With many unable to keep their eyes off the Live Stream coverage, the Marilyn Stephenson & Sandra Connelly took on the Mother/Daughter combination of Rohanna & Laureen Smith in the Women’s Pairs Final. In a match where the four players initially struggled to get close to the Jack, the game stepped up a notch after the first four ends, and viewers were treated with a great game of Bowls! Rohanna & Laureen were victorious with a 14-12 win.
Over on Rink two, Dane McKinnon & Liam Garlick-Adams appeared again, taking on Bradley Marron & Lee Schraner. Marron & Schraner jumped out of the blocks, creating an early buffer and before you could blink they were out to a 16-3 lead. McKinnon & Garlick-Adams tried hard to fight back in their second match of the day, but were unable to maintain the pressure, going down 22-6.
