Dave Moor and Jeff Morgan powered ahead in a tight final to win the Major Pairs at the Mullumbimby Ex-Services bowling club on Sunday in front of a good crowd.

Moor and Morgan overran Scott and Mark Hogan after a very tight early game.

The scores were tied after ten ends at six shots each as the match produced excellent bowling worthy of a final, with neither pair able to gain the upper hand.

But Moor and Morgan collected nine shots in three ends to close out an outstanding final, 22–9 and become worthy champions.

The semifinals were played on Saturday on a pacey green.

Moor and Morgan won a tight match 22–17 over George and Adam McKenzie, while Scott and Mark Hogan were too strong for Ross Graham and Sean Doherty, taking out the match 29–10.

On the Thursday (February 23) in the pairs match, Errol Boyter and Jamie Ewin defeated Phill Brassington and Mike Nicholls.

In the triples games Tony Baggio, Mal Flesser and Terry Johnston defeated Ian Carlin, Gary Porter and Jean-Claude Canabou; while Ray Breckenridge, Alan Bartlett and Larry Henry edged out Michael Lardi, Michael Burke and Geoff Winter.
