Final day of Aus Senior Sides
Queensland and Western Australia likely battle it out for the women’s trophy at the Australian Senior Sides Championships.
Today’s final round tomorrow will decide the outcome of the women’s side of the tournament, with Queensland and Western Australia likely to be the two teams battling it out for the trophy at the Australian Senior Sides Championships.
A win for Queensland over Victoria will seal victory given their superior rink point total, but the Westerners will be looking to pile the pressure on as they take on ACT.
Yesterday’s action saw the Queensland women rack up a brilliant 60-41 win over South Australia and leapfrogged into first position on the ladder, taking full advantage of the NSW surprise loss.
The clean sweep of the series was instrumented by Wendy Ryan emerging successful by 9 shots, while Louise Witton scored a seven-shot win and Christina Pavlov sneaked away with just two shots in her favour.
While in the men’s round five game Peter Gageler and his Croweater teammates upset the former ladder leading skip Geoff Maskell by the margin of 26-12.
In round six Queensland had a day out against Tasmania, winning five of their rinks across both the men’s and women’s contests after the men secured a close but significant 54-51 victory while the women trumped Tasmania 79-50.
