Womens Interclub/Bowls 3Five

Bowls 3 Five Nationals What an amazing event and an outstanding result for the Bay of Plenty based Mount Maunganui team of Lorraine Rowling, Nathan Arlidge and Paul Anderson crowned champions of the 2023 National Bowls 3 Five competition. After a few opening jitters the Mount Maunganui team worked supremely together having each other’s back and showed very few times of any signs of worry. The big break came for them in the semi-final when the opposition held shot to win the tie breaker. Arlidge created an opening with his last bowl to push aside the two-blocking bowls. While Anderson narrowly missed with his first bowl it was his second that nailed the jack into the ditch to win the game for the Mount Megalodons. In the final it came down to a tie break again. This time it was the Mount team that applied the pressure to the opposition. While one on the head by Arlidge was great, it was Anderson that added a second to really pile the pressure that broke the back of the opposition Te Atatu team. National Women’s Interclub Seven’s Again, Bay of Plenty is the place to be. We are so proud of the winning Tauranga Club team comprising - Singles: Sue Hodges , Pairs: Debbie White(s), Mary Campbell, Fours: Gayle Melrose (s), Jocelyn Holten, Marilyn Constantine, Karen Clark and Manager: Gerald Lockett. In the final against Nelson, after winning the fours and losing the singles it came down to the pairs match. While the Tauranga team were holding two shots, the opposition skip on her last bowl trailed the jack out of position to hold the shot. This sparked celebrations throughout the Nelson team but they hadn’t realised that Tauranga had still one bowl to play. With her last effort Debbie White moved the jack back over to one of her team’s bowls to win a memorable game and secure the national title.
