Big win seals deal for triple team
LAWN BOWLS: Sam Lunck says her and teammates Wendy Mason and Alison Ogle were confident in taking out the win, but never in the manner they did it.
The Gladstone lawns bowls trio dominated the penultimate match against Yeppoon's Jenny Hansen, Myra Wilson and Althea Vaughan.
Lunck and company won 26-5 to take out the annual Open Triples which was held at the Gladstone Bowls Club on Tuesday and yesterday.
"We played them plenty of times before in carnivals in Central Queensland and they are one of the top teams," Lunck said of their rival Yeppoon.
"We were expecting just to win and it was always going to be a tough game.
"We got on top since game two."
Lunck added the greens ran well although the wind made it a challenge on day two.
She said Ogle was a great replacement and Mason added plenty of experience.
"It was the first time that we played with Alison and I had played plenty of times with Wendy," Lunck said.
"Wendy and I know each others game really well and know what each other are thinking."
The winning trio won $900 in prizemoney and Lunck will use her $300 dividend toward lawn bowls gear.
The event attracted teams from Gladstone, Biloela, Yeppoon and Taroom and consisted of three games from 16 ends on day one and two games from 18 ends yesterday.
The total prizemoney was $2250.
