With the Maestro Singles matches played last Friday night, the competition is close to a conclusion for 2019.
Shane Foote defeated Chris Hocking 31 to 24. A comfortable win for Shane, who looked as though he was going to run away with the match right from the early stages, but Chris started to get his act together and peg Shane back. Unfortunately for Chris, he had given Shane much of a start and was not able to run him down.
Jake Fisher defeated Craig Phillis 31 to 18. Jake has been in top form over the last couple of weeks and was much too good for Craig. Jake took an early lead and although Craig played some nice bowls, he never looked likely to run Jake down.
Sunday matches: Shane Foote defeated Cary Peters 31 to 13. An easy win for Shane, who is in very good form and was too good for Cary on the day. Cary played some nice bowls, but was never able to get in the match.

Semi Final of the Mixed Pairs
Terry Ricketts and Chris Hancock defeated Tom Apps and Robyn Apps 30 to 15. Tom and Robyn got a lesson in 'how to play bowls' here in the Semi Finals. Tom and Robyn were well below their best, while Terry and Chris were in brilliant form and were much too good, winning easily. Terry and Chris will now play David Bodell and Kelly Daley in the Final on Saturday.
Pairs Championship: Chris Hancock and Donna Chesworth defeated Melissa Peisley and Kelly Daley 16 to 14. A very good game of bowls with little in it right up until the last couple of ends. With two ends to go, the scores were level at 13 all, and it was anyone's match.
Kelly and Melissa put their noses in front at 14 to 13 with one end to go, but on the last end, it was Chris and Donna who got the money when they picked up three shots to fall over the line and win by two shots.
Singles: Nyssa Stadtmiller defeated Melissa Peisley 26 to 10. An easy win for Nyssa, who has been in good form lately. Melissa played some nice bowls, but found Nyssa too good on the day.
Summer League: Next Sunday, the Harden Hunnies (Kelly Daley, Chris Hancock and Pat Walker) and the Harden Hawks (Robyn Apps, Anne Larsen and Dianne Debritt) will play off at Young in the South West Final. The winners will go on to play in the State Finals at Blacktown Workers Club in February.
The Ladies Bowls meeting will be held Sunday, December 8 at 4pm.
