Over 60s Womens Pairs

The ladies over 60s pairs after preliminary rounds at St Leonards played their semis and final at Bareena on Sunday. The good conditions were conducive to good bowling.

In semifinal 1 the Ocean grove pair Jean Luke and Lorraine Oliver played Wendy Ballentine and Belinda Koek from Highton. Although Oliver and Luke were never out of the match .The Highton Pair with steady bowling   always seemed to be in control, eventually winning 13/9

Semifinal 2 with Coral Milligan leading and Di Monk at skip were matched against the Ocean grove pair of Maureen Brooks and Elaine Price.  The Monk combination never really got their A game going and Brooks and Price seemed always to be able to that little bit better anytime the Highton pair looked likely to get back in the game. Price and Brooks winning 19/9.

The final between Price and Brooks and Ballentine and Koek was a great exhibition of steady tight bowling. Belinda Koek was in fine form and gave the Highton combo a great start and with Wendy tidying up or adding when required they never really Price and Brooks into the game. It was a case of anything they could do Belinda and Wendy could do better. Ballentine and Koek running out comfortable winners 14/8

All the best to Wendy and Belinda at Sebastopol on 13/14 of December when the y represent Geelong in the Womens over 60s prs
