 Last Sunday saw the culmination of the Women's Pairs event with the final played between the pairings of Etsuko MacKessack & Janet Swan and Chelsea Farley & Tessa Farley. 
Pleasing to see the Women's junior players starting to come to the fore with 3 of the finalists being Year 1-5 bowlers.
The Farley pairing lead out strongly  from the start and  held challenging  10-0 lead.  Better bowling from the MacKessack & Swan pairing  and some inexperience saw the Farley pairing drop a 6 and a 2 in consecutive ends to have the game tighten up  and give the appreciative supporters  more interest as to how the final ends would unfold.
The balance of the game saw fairly even scoring,  with the Farley pairing  having small edge  in scoring multiple point ends and ran out winners 18 -14.
An absorbing final,  and  it bodes well for the balance of the Women's program  that the mix of experienced and junior bowlers will see more good finals to come.
2016/17 Women's Pairs Champions,  Chelsea & Tessa Farley.
