QLD U25 MENS DEF NSW IN INTERSTATE TEST

by admin

Queensland U25 Men enjoyed a narrow victory in the Third Test to take the series 2-1, with a single shot win in the fours in the Third and deciding test. Queensland took on the Keno NSW Blues in a three Test series at Raymond Terrace Bowling Club on 12-13 February. The teams faced off in four series: Men, Women, Men U25 and Women U25. Bowls NSW provided live video coverage of the event (go to their Facebook page to view).

The Men and Women played as sides of three teams of four (12 players) with master board scoring while the Under 25 series played as sides of seven players competing in singles, pairs and fours in each Test. The winner of the Under 25 Test was the side to have won the greatest number of disciplines.
Day 1 Interstate Test Series – 12 February 2018
The Blues took the First Test on day 1 with epic play against Queensland.

Day 2 Interstate Test Series – 12 February 2018
Queensland clawed their way back to the leader board with spectacular play in the second test, defeating NSW 64-53. The momentum was carried through to the early stages of the third test, but NSW made a swift recovery from their Second Test loss and fought back hard to win the Third Test 73-38 and claim the series 2-1.

However, Queensland enjoyed a narrow victory in the Third Test to take the Under 25 series 2-1, a single shot win in the fours in the Third and deciding test giving the QLD Under 25s the series 2-1.
