Leigh Rickert and Richie Northcott have taken out the Mullumbimby Bowling Club’s 2018 major pairs with a 25–16 win over Ross Graham and Ben Leeson.
The game was a nip-and- tuck affair up until the 16th end with tight heads and only one or two shots separating the teams.
The 17th end, however, saw Rickert and Northcott claim six shots and they went on to take the 2018 title by nine shots in an excellent display of bowling.
In the pairs played on March 3, Geoff Flick and Larry Henry defeated Michael Burke and Sharon Thomas 25–14; while in the triples Mike Nicholls, Brett Luker and Jeff Morgan beat Clint Marsh, Terry Fenwick and Jean-Claude Canabou 30–14.
The first round of the 2018 Coopers Brewing Mullumbimby Ex-Services Club Autumn Corporate Bowls was played on the preceding Friday night in ideal conditions.
