2020 Veteran Pairs finalists

As expected, this was a great game and worthy of a Final. Victor Gauci & George Boni kept a small lead throughout the game, which left Larry Johnston & Terry Brown needing 5 on the last end, to force an extra end. However, Vic & George were holding 5 shots and Terry had one bowl left, which cut Vic & George down to 3 shots. Congratulations to Vic & George on becoming the UBMBC 2020 Veteran Pairs Champions 19 - 11 (the score didn't reflect how close the game was). Commiserations to Larry & Terry, who did very well to get to the final. Very well done to Terry for making two Veteran finals in two years and well done also to Larry for making two finals in as many weeks.

Losing 7 shots on the 1st 2 ends, he recovered to get himself back in the game. The score was neck and neck throughout, with Jim just managing to maintain a small lead, until the end. The final score 31-22. Congratulations Jim.

2020 Major Singles Final

Glen Simington & Shane Waddell. 

Glen Simington became Umina's 58th Major Singles champion on Sunday 19th July 2020. After a great game of bowls. Glen managed to come from behind to beat Shane 33-25. Shane had lead from the start and clung to a slender lead the entire game, but Glen had saved his best until the last few ends, when he finally drew level at 25-25. From then on, there was no holding Glen back, as he drew some cracking shots to finish the game with a 3 on the final end. A well deserved win.
