Clayton pair Jennifer Bainbridge and Lois Brock held their nerve to win the Latrobe City Classic Pairs invitational women’s lawn bowls tournament at Moe last weekend.
It was a nail-biting end to two days of intense competition as three teams were sitting on five wins, one on four wins and three on three wins and a draw ahead of the final round.
Local pair Jo Leslie (Yinnar) and Alison Caldwell (Traralgon) were nudged out of first place by Bainbridge and Brock by a small difference of five shots up.
Closely following were last year’s winners Jaye Allen-Dayle (Mulgrave) and Pam Wintrup (Wonthaggi).
Players commented favourably on the organisation and friendliness of the annual event.
1st Jennifer Bainbridge, Lois Brock (Clayton); 2nd Jo Leslie (Yinnar), Alison Caldwell (Traralgon); 3rd Jaye Allen-Dayle (Mulgrave), Pam Wintrup (Wonthaggi);
4th Ann Green, Sue O’Connell (Wonthaggi).
