by jgrey

More medal winners on day three of the 2021 QLD State Multi-Disability Championships at Souths Suburban Bowls Club in Mackay this afternoon (Wednesday 21 July).

Danial Walker from Tweed Heads came out all guns blazing in the final of the Life Stream Open Singles against Cleveland’s Kaye Freeman. Walker found his rhythm right from the start scoring two counts of three shots to take an early lead. Freeman fought hard all the way and tried her hardest to work back into the game. Walker continued the pressure to defend his title after winning the event in 2020 and 2019.

Darren Davis from Diggers Memorial took out the Bronze Medal after defeating Wondai’s Darryl Bridges. After being nine all, Davis finished off stronger to claim the win.

Walker and Bridges will be looking to win three straight in the Life Stream Pairs tomorrow.

Proserpine’s Scott Kinnear has taken out the Blind Bowlers Open Singles after defeating defending champion Jake Fehlberg from Burleigh Heads in the final. Kinnear started well going out to a 9-4 lead before a comeback from Fehlberg squared the ledger at nine all. Kinnear bounced back with a count of three shots to regain the lead before Fehlberg hit his straps to win the next five ends to lead 15-12. Kinnear kicked again with a full count of four shots to regain the control. After trading ends, the pair were on 17 all when the bell rang to end the game. With Kinnear holding three shots, Fehlberg had the last crack and missed with a running shot with Kinnear taking the title in his maiden Blind Bowlers event. Kinnear was assisted by Director Keg Transberg while Fehlberg was assisted by his father Grant Fehlberg as Director.

Lynne Seymour from Thuringowa along with husband Bob as Director took out the Bronze Medal after defeating Edmonton’s June Brittain and daughter Christine McDonald as Director.

Play continues with the final day tomorrow including Sporting Wheelies Men’s and Women’s Singles, Hard of Hearing Open Pairs, Life Stream Open Pairs and Blind Open Pairs with all finals at 2:10pm.
