Last Sunday  saw the semi-finals and Final of the 
Championship pairs played to find the 2015/16 season champions.  

One semi-final saw Odie Walter and Ivan Sumich playing Warren Tritt and Matt Johnston. In an initially even match over the earlier stages, the Tritt/Johnston pair had built a 4 point lead by the the seventh end and in scoring a six on the 8th end, essentially had the match totally in control and ran out winners 20-9.

The other semi-final  saw Richard Seifert and Steve Kirwan playing Greg Johnston and John James. The match was a close even game at 8-7 through seven ends. However the excellent lead bowling by Richard allowed the pair to build a 6 point lead by twelve ends and ran out 20-11 winners.

The final payed in near perfect bowling conditions was a high quality, tight and even contest at 8 all through ten ends, with 
Richard continuing his good lead bowling. 
This allowed the Seifert/Kirwan pair to build solid scoring opportunities that were kept in check by Matt's run and drive shot accuracy. 
Four solid scoring ends by the Seifert/Kirwan pair from there saw them out to 17-9 lead with an end to go when the concession came.

Another excellent display of bowls and congratulations to all players on the day, and again a 1st year bowler to fore with Richard Seifert adding another Championship to his season.
