QLD Multi-Disability Championships Day 4 (Finals Results)

by jgrey

Another fantastic QLD State Multi-Disability Championships has been run and won at Souths Suburban and Mackay City Bowls Clubs this afternoon (Thursday 22 July).

The finals of five events were played in the last session with some amazing bowls being played across the green.

Damien Delgado from Tweed Heads continued his sublime form to overcome Cristian Lenske from Mooloolaba in the Sporting Wheelies Men’s Singles final. It was the last game to finish in the finals series and had everyone on the edge of their seats. Lenske went out to an early lead of 12-5 and had momentum on his side before Delgado hit his straps to claw back to 15 all. They then traded ends before being 17 all when the bell rang. With the jack in the back corner of the ditch, it was a battle of the draw to the ditch with Delgado winning a measure to take out the match. Delgado has had a great year after claiming silver in the Open Men’s State Championships in Brisbane during May, he also won this event last year at Chermside.

Hometown favourite Cooper Whitestyles claimed the Bronze Medal after defeating David Hayes from Glasshouse Country.

Mt Gravatt’s Cheryl Lindfield dominated the Sporting Wheelies Women’s Singles winning all her round games and then defeating Louise Hoskins from South Johnstone in the final. This was Lindfield’s first time in the event after recently being classified, she was also successful in the pairs with Cooper Whitestyles where they won Gold. Annette Goldsworthy from Burnett defeated Diane Jackson of Airlie Beach to win the Bronze Medal.

Airlie’s Russell Jackson made it two Gold Medals for the week when he teamed up with the experienced Barry Lynne from Mareeba to win the Hard of Hearing Open Pairs. The pair topped the ladder in the round games before accounting for Eric Smith (Beenleigh) & Andrew Crosbie (Airlie Beach) in the final after leading from start to finish. Sue Tappenden (Mt Larcom) & Janet Hogan (Gladstone) defeated Peter Rookas & John Price to take home Bronze.

The Blind Open Pairs was won by Brandon Smith (Sth Johnstone) with his grandmother Maisie Smith as Director and Jake Fehlberg with father Grant Fehlberg as Director (Burleigh Heads) after defeating Helen Boardman with Director Peter Doherty (Enoggera) and June Brittain with daughter Christine McDonald as Director (Edmonton) in the final. Smith and Fehlberg were cruising at 9-1 until a big comeback from Boardman and Brittain to draw level at 9 all. Smith and Fehlberg steadied to win four of the last five ends to claim the title. Vanessa Hinton (New Farm) and Lynne Seymour with Director Bob Seymour (Thuringowa) took home the Bronze Medal.

Danial Walker of Tweed Heads continued his dominance in the Life Stream event winning the Open Pairs back-to-back with Darryl Bridges from Wondai. The pair went out to a 14-0 lead over Darren Davis (Diggers Memorial) & Alan Duffy (Chermside) and never looked back to eventually win by 10 shots. Carla Pizzi (Noorla) & Kaye Freeman (Cleveland) won the Bronze Medal.

Old friendships were rekindled and many new ones were made in a great display of sportsmanship on and off the green.
