Kilmore’s Lesley Young bowling at Kyneton Bowling Club.

KILMORE and Broadford bowlers represented their respective clubs in the first two rounds of Ballarat Highlands Bowls Region, BHBR, Mixed Pairs championship on February 27 at Kyneton and Kyneton Golf greens.

The Kilmore pair of Lesley and Trevor Young played at Kyneton Bowling Club and came up against highly-rated Ballarat’s City Oval Bowling Club pair Janine and Wayne Roberts.

The pair did well competing competitively, scoring 12 shots in the game, but were overcome in a tough battle against the Roberts team which went on to win the game by seven shots.

Kilmore’s other competing pair was Lesley Hodgson and John Coates, who also played bowlers from Ballarat’s City Oval Bowling Club. In a very close game Hodgson and Coates lost by a single shot, 10 to 11.

Broadford’s Jan Goring and Laurie Barnes played against Kyneton pair of Christine and Adrian Plowman and narrowly lost their game, going down 10 shots to 13.

Unfortunately as the three pairs were unsuccessful in their round one and two matches, they will not progress to the next round.

Kyneton Bowling Club will host the remainder of the mixed pairs championships, with the semi-finals and final to be played on Sunday.
