North QLD District’s premier women’s fours competition, the Standard Cup (June, 25 – 27), has been won by Ingham Bowls Club in a nail-biter of a final at Wangaratta Bowls Club which saw the Ingham women capture the 2018 crown.
Ingham’s skip Elsa Piotto was thrilled to have won one of North Queensland’s highest accolades with her fellow teammates Janice Casanovas, Luisa Di Bella and Janese Craven, Piotto’s team beat Noorla’s team 18-17 in the final.
The final was dogged by rain after the first six ends which put added pressure onto an already tight final between the two teams.
“It was a fierce competition this year against 13 great teams consisting of their club’s best four players, so there were no easy games,” Piotto said.
“It was our club’s second ever win in the competition which is really great for our club who last won it in 2012, our motto throughout the competition was simply to take it one bowl at a time.
“The win is a real boost for our club both in terms of prestige and financially as we will be hosting the 2019 competition as the result of our victory.”
