Zone 9 - Sydney Northern District Bowls
MONA VALE INTO GRADE 2 STATE FINAL
Sensational news from Wagga with the Mona Vale Grade 2 side into the BNSW GRADE 2 STATE FINAL to be played against Moruya.
A close match throughout Mona Vale surged ahead to lead by 12 with 7 ends to play and then by 6 with just 2 to play. The boys from Inverell East finished strongly to tie the scores at 56-56 after 63 ends. Some believed Inverell had therefore won courtesy of having scored 2 rink wins but the COP required an extra end to be played. With 2 rinks finished their extra end it came down to the last bowl of the match played by Steve (Chook) Clark who removed the Inverell shot bowl with a precision on-shot to claim 5 shots and a 61-60 victory for Mona Vale in an epic contest.
Good luck to the Mona Vale boys this afternoon!!
