Last Saturday the Lower South East Bowls Association Champion of Champions Ladies’ two bowl triples event was held at the Naracoorte RSL Bowls Club.
The event was played over three rounds leading up to the Grand Final and all games were 15 ends each.
The Millicent team of Andrea Radley, Sarah Ross and Elaine Goode drew a bye in the first round and came up against Lucindale in the second round. They were able to win that game 19-5 with the last end not being played.
In their second game they played Mount Gambier and by the 10th end were sitting two shots up. By the 14th end the side maintained its margin to progress into the decider.
The home team of Naracoorte RSL was Millicent’s opponent, and a thriller was in store with the scoreboard locked at 10 shots all. Millicent was able to win the next four ends to compile a seven-shot lead, but Naracoorte RSL did not give up and scored five in the last two ends.
Eventually Millicent held on by two shots and the triumphant side will now go on to play in the Regional Ladies Triples Championship game.
