Plenty of contenders for singles

BOWLING on her home green, June Munn was one of the local victims on day two of the women’s Black Douglas Singles for Masters at South Tweed Sports Club yesterday.

Various sections have seen players emerge as top contenders and they are all keen to keep a good roll on as they battle it out for one of the biggest prize purses of the year.

The four-day event has attracted 65 bowlers from across Australia, all vying for the ultimate kitty of $10,000.

Apart from section 12 where it is a battle between two bowlers, the seven other sections have potentially three ladies in contention

Munn was defeated by Sue McKenzie (Tweed Heads) 21-2 in section 16.

South Tweed bowler Ann-Maree Peart had a top day at the office and was the only two-game winner in section 10 but will need another win to cement her place in the post-sectionals.

Local winners yesterday included Ann-Maree Hardey and Sue McKenzie (Tweed Heads) and Jenny Blyth (South Tweed).

All the action starts today 9am.
