VIC WRAP DAY 2: AUSTRALIAN INDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS
The Australian Indoor Championships continued today at Tweed Head Bowls Club in what produced mixed results for Victoria.
Seven Victorians entered day two, with Round of 16 played last night and this morning.
Jay Bye-Norris (Essendon), Barrie Lester (Melbourne) and Gayle Edwards (Altona) were all unfortunate exits from the competition, while Dane McKinnon (Altona), Robert Briglia (Middle Park), Max Goldsmith (Melbourne) and David Wells (Warrnambool City Memorial) all played through to the Last 8.
David Wells, who defeated Ben Twist from New South Wales, was delighted at the chance to progress to the quarter-finals.
“I’m delighted to have a win. Ben played some lovely bowls, so I was pretty stoked to get through,” Wells said.
The quarter-finals saw a battle between the Victorians with Dane McKinnon meeting David Wells and Robert Briglia facing Max Goldsmith.
While Wells’ run of luck ended when he met Dane McKinnon in the quarter-final, the Warrnambool local was thrilled to be part of the tournament.
“It’s been pretty exciting; it’s a great place to be. We got in some good solid practice, and it’s been great to be part of it.”
