Happy 80th Birthday Bob Rogers! Scottish International Lawn Bowls Grand Final: Full Time

Scottish International Lawn Bowls Grand Final: Half Time

December 3rd, 2006 at 01:17am

Kelvin Kerkow has easily won the first set of the Scottish International Lawn Bowls grand final, 11-5, against fellow Australian David Gourlay.

Ninth seed Kelvin Kerkow started the set well, and seemed more composed than 4th seed david Gourlay whose only answer was driving the ball in the hope of hitting something, a tactic which failed more often than not. By the end of the 7th set (the equivalent of a game in tennis), Kerkow led 8-1.

Gourlay then staged a comeback, getting back within three points of Kerkow, who led 8-5 after 9 ends, but it was all Kerkow from there, as he scored another two points to win the set 11-5.

Today’s final is being run over two sets of 11 ends, in the event of a draw there will be a tiebreaker of three ends.
