Chloe Stewart Wins Second State Singles

by Bowls QLD

In a rematch of the 2020 QLD Women’s State Singles Final, Chloe Stewart reversed the tables to overcome Katelyn Inch and win her second State Singles Title.

The two girls came to play with the final a high-quality showpiece on the final day of the QLD State Championships. After being 5 all, Inch then held a small lead for the next stage of the game to lead 14 -11. The momentum then changed with Stewart stringing a few quality ends together to shoot out to lead 18-14. With Stewart then leading 21-16, Inch staged a comeback drawing level at 22 all after quality bowls from both players. Stewart held one on the next end before playing a perfectly weighted bowl with her last to dislodge Inch’s second shot and pick up three shots to claim the victory 25-22.

An exciting finish to a thrilling final between two good friends. Stewart acknowledged Inch in her victory speech and the many battles they have had both with an against each other. The pair were team mates last week where they claimed bronze in the Women’s Pairs.

In the Bronze Medal Match, Gail Crompton finished off the stronger to defeat Tilly Orero 25-14. Orero held the lead early in the match at 11-5 before Crompton hit her straps to dominate the remainder of the game.
