1 month ago Open Singles Competition
The competition was once again held at Slimbridge RBL. After some close games, the semi-final line up was Keith Rugman (Fusiliers) against Sam Tarr (Persuaders) and Jim Williams (Rebels) against Lloyd Pennington (Moscow Dynamos). Sam came out victorious over Keith by 9 pins 59-50 and the second semi-final was a closer affair with Jim coming out top 52-50.
In the final, Sam won the toss and chose to bowl first with Jim choosing Alley 1 to play the final on. Sam set the game off with a 7 and Jim replied with a 5. Sam then went on to score four straight 8s giving her 39 after 5 legs. Jim replied with two 9s, an 8 and a 6 giving him 37. Sam then scored 6 and 5 giving her 50 after 7 legs. Jim also scored a 6 and 5 giving him 48 leaving a 2 pin difference. It was all down to a one-leg shoot out with Jim needing to score 2 pins more than Sam to force an extra leg. Sam went on and with her second ball cleared the alley for a spare. Her third ball just brushed one pin giving her a 10 spare. Jim now knew what he needed to do, but unfortunately only managed to reply with a 5 leaving Sam with a 7 pin victory.
Congratulations to Sam Tarr a well-deserved win with her consistent scoring through the competition and adds this trophy to her Open Pairs success. Our thanks to Jim and his staff at Slimbridge RBL and to the stickers for hosting us.
