Kiwi scores one for the ages



AN 84-year-old Kiwi, Ivan Kostanich, beat Australian number one Steve Glasson yesterday on his way to the quarter-finals of the Prestige Open Mixed Singles tournament at the Tweed Heads Bowls Club.

Former New Zealand international Kostanich, the oldest competitor in the 256-player tournament, scored a heartstopping 25-23 win over Glasson in the morning's fourth round, before beating Bernie Melville 25-19 to advance to to- day's quarters, where he takes on rising Victorian star Brendam McCallum.

McCallum is 60 years younger than Kostanich.

Another up-an-coming player in strong contention for the title and $7000 first prizemoney is Helensvale bowler Mark Casey who was the third player to book his spot in the quarterfinals late yesterday.

Meanwhile, Tweed Heads player Di Cunnington was knocked out in the fourth round, going down 25-19 to John Noble.
