Ewin and Moroney are all set to take on Lumsden and Leeson in the Minor Pairs final at the Mullumbimby Bowling Club this weekend.

The first semifinal of the minor pairs was played on Friday night in front of an enthusiastic crowd.

George and Adam McKenzie raced to an early 12–1 lead by the eighth end, but Jamie Ewin and Andrew Moroney clawed their way back into the match and took the lead on the 15th end.

They then edged away and completed a great comeback to eventually win 28–16.

On Saturday Ashley Lumsden and Ben Leeson played out a thriller in the second semifinal against Clint Marsh and Geoff Flick.

The lead changed ten times in the match until the scores were tied at 19–all after the regulation 21 ends.

With Marsh and Flick holding shot on the tie-breaking end, Ben Leeson played the final bowl and drew the shot to secure a one-point victory against the gallant opponents.

In July Ben made it to the final of the 2017 TBDBA Reserve Singles.

The final will be played on Saturday afternoon.
