CRESWICK’S Beth Huntley and Sue Wilcock are the new Ballarat District Bowls Division women’s pairs doubles champions.
Huntley and Wilcock defeated Central Wendouree’s Elizabeth Keirce and Sally McCracken in the finals held yesterday at Sebastopol Bowls Club.
The pair lost to an Invermay club last year to finish runners-up, so were excited to go one better.
The close match saw an even score right up until the last end.
Creswick then pulled away to take the victory, scoring three shots when it mattered most to win 17-14.
Huntley said she was on top of the world to take the win.
“It was nip and tuck the whole way,” Huntley said.
“We were two all, four all, eight all, 12 all, 14 all – close the whole way.”
Huntley and Wilcock will now represent the division at regional level, with regional finals at Webbcona Bowls Club on February 28.
