Two out of three ain’t bad
Queensland won two medals from their three play-off games at the Super 6 series in Tasmania. Queensland’s Super 6 contingent claimed two medals from three play-offs in Tasmania today, lifting silver in the men’s pairs and bronze in the women’s triple.
Helensvale clubmates Anthony Fantini and Mark Casey narrowly missed out on the Pairs gold, going down 16-19 to Victoria’s Peter Loe and Matthew Flapper despite winning the last six ends of their medal clash.
The Queenslanders had looked on track for a hiding at South Burnie Bowls Club, trailing 6-19 at one point in the match. But the duo rallied in the dying ends, clawing back 10 unanswered shots to get within three of their rivals.
Unfortunately the pair left their run a little too late and in the end they were beaten by the clock. Victoria were the big winners in the men’s field, sweeping gold in the singles, pairs and triples.
In the women’s event, Queensland trio Sammie Wilson, Tracey Foster and Louis Witton won the battle for triples bronze, beating WA’s Shenayde Heldt, Rechelle Cole and Therese Hastings 19-13.
Unfortunately Natasha Jones couldn’t replicate her teammates in the singles final, with the Bribie Island youngster left empty-handed after being edged out of the bronze medal match by WA’s Kristina Krstic, 21-19.
