Narrabri Women’s Bowling Club members Helen Woodward, Dawn Armstrong, Cindy Neil and Eva Sadler will travel to Tamworth to compete for the Regional Senior Fours title after winning a very close Namoi District final on Saturday.
The team had a bye in the morning then defeated fellow Narrabri bowlers Marie Redman, Di Chessells, Lyn Wedesweiler and Rhonda Welchman that afternoon.
It was a close contest which was separated by just one point after 22 ends after the match was forced into overtime.
An extra end was required to decide the winner after the score was 15-all on the 15th end, 18-all on the 19th end and 19-all on the 21st end.
The winning bowl belonged to Armstrong as Sadler’s team won the game 20-19.
Earlier in the day, Redman, Chessells, Wedesweiler and Welchman defeated a Moree team which included Lorraine Bartel, Ida Muusers, Dot Heffernan and Joan Limb 22-18 in the morning.
The score was 11-all on the 10th end, 13-all on the 12th end, 15-all on the 16th end and 17-all on the 19th end.
The Narrabri ladies were lucky enough to score a five on the 20th end which was enough to secure victory as Moree scored one on the last end. The final score was 22-18.
Wee Waa’s team of Dot Dewson, Melissa Allen, Kay Dewson and Lisa Pillar will contest the Regional Open Fours in Tamworth after being the only nomination in that event at Namoi District level.
Meanwhile, there were no club matches played in Narrabri last Thursday due to the rain.
