The 2018 Major Singles continued under threatening skies last Saturday at the Mullumbimby Bowling Club.
Mark Holton was too strong for Ben Leeson winning 31–11, while Jeff Morgan recorded a 31–16 win over Trent Foreman.
Then Richie Northcott and Shane Knight played out an exciting match, with Northcott sprinting to a 16–4 lead before Knight began to reel his opponent in. Northcott steadied, however, and went on to take the match 31–27.
In the final match of the day, last year’s winner Scott Hogan ran into a difficult opponent in Troy Creighton.
Creighton led 30–24 and needed only one shot for victory, when Hogan staged a great fightback and was in a winning position on the second-last end.
But Creighton managed to save the day with his last bowl. Hogan again held shot on the last end but with his last bowl Creighton took the shot bowl out and recorded a 31–29 victory.
