Tough day at Black Douglas

By HUGH KEARNEY

ONLY one bowler remained undefeated after three games on day two of the Black Douglas women's singles for Masters at South Tweed Sports Club yesterday.

Merrylands bowler Anne Watson, with a 7-shot win in her last game, took the section comfortably (3+19), on a day when just two of the eight second-game leaders made it through to the post-sectionals today.

Although Faye Woodward (Algester) defeated Ann-Maree Hardey (Helensvale) in section 14, her margin was not enough at 2+0, leaving the section to be decided between South Tweed's Lolita Treasure and second round leader Val D'Arcy (Hervey Bay). In the end Treasure defeated D'Arcy by five shots. Treasure's final tally of 2+7 was the smallest margin of the day.

Ceri Ann Davies, of Helensvale, overcame a slow start for a 15 shot win over second round leader Julie Dean (Paradise Point). Tweed Heads bowler Di Cunnington won section 15 (2+14) despite a last game loss to Vicki Day (2+9).

South Tweed's Ann Maree Peart's close 2-shot loss to Gaye Doohan was enough for Doohan of Pine Rivers to claim section 10 at 2+1 to Peart's 2+9. Other sectional winners on day two were Ceri Ann Davies (Helensvale), Ruth Greentree (Kandanga) and Genelita Nagy (Yandina).

The 16 sectional winners from days one and two will contest post-sectional play today, with semi-finals and final scheduled for tomorrow.
