No joy for Forster at Multi Disability State Champs
There have been upsets at Multi Disability State Championships with Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Joy Forster one of the early casualties There is no joy so far for blind bowler Joy Forster and her director Bruce Jones at the Multi Disability State Championships.
The Commonwealth Games mixed pairs bronze medallist looks to be out of contention for a singles final after losing three of her four sectional games, and doesn’t look to be having much luck in other events either.
Forster came up empty in round one of the open pairs game with Don Dias, as well as the open triples game alongside John Vance and Des Mackay.
But there have been upsets all round with current Sporting Wheelies national champion Kaytlyn Smith suffering a massive loss in the sectionals that could rule her out for the finals.
She lost 21-8 against Louise Hoskins, and will need to win her next game by at least 15 shots to have a chance at winning her section to proceed to the ladies singles final.
Dionne Farrow edged fellow Sporting Wheelies competitor Serena Nichols out in a game that came right down to the wire.
Nichols was leading by two after the bell and holding one shot, when Farrow sat her shot out to win by one.
The event runs until Thursday September 4 at Aspley Memorial Bowls Club.
