There was a lot of action at Bowral Bowling Club last week including one big upset.
Terry Norwood and Brian Porter defeated Dave Coltman and Alistair McGhee 27-19 on Saturday (May 21).
Norwood and Porter received a five-shot start against top ranked bowlers Coltman and McGhee and maintained the lead, running out eight-shot winners.
Terry Butt and Kevin Stafford defeated Viv Gear and Clive Neutze 25-23. This was due to some exceptional good lead bowls by Butt who has been in great form of late.
At the finish Butt and Stafford moved into the next round with a two- shot win.
Owen Williams and Don Chapman defeated Graham Hunt and Bob Edwards 27-18. Williams and Chapman had a four shot start but were never in trouble and went on for a nine-shot win.
Earlier in the week Norwood was again in the winner's circle.
Norwood and Peter Morales defeated Ted McPhee and Chris Forrester 19-17 on Wednesday (May 18).
It was a very tight first half of the match and after 11 ends Norwood and Morales held a 10-4 lead with very tight bowls being played.
After 18 ends they were still in command of the match leading 18-9. Then a rapid change came over the match when McPhee and Forrester picked up five shots on the 19th end and the next end scored three shots to trail 18-17.
But on the last end Norwood and Morales picked up one shot to run out two shot winners.
