What an exciting Singles Championship final match today!
Shizuko Hashimoto played Vicki Bartrop with both ladies playing beautiful bowls throughout the match.
Vicki had a strong first third and then Shizuko drew closer during the middle of the match.
In the final stages of the match, Vicki drew away again but Shizuko wasn't giving up without a fight. The last end was brilliant - Vicki drew shot with a resting toucher behind the jack. Shizuko came in with a resting toucher and nudged Vicki away. Then Vicki came in with another toucher, pushing Shizuko's bowl away and staying for 2 shots - that's what she needed to take the match.
Congratulations to both ladies for a great game.
