Tatura Bowls Club’s men’s championship was decided on Thursday night, with Peter LeSueur jumping out to an 11-0 lead after just four ends and retaining control for the remainder of the match.
The early lead could not be bridged by opponent Jack Schroen, who won 13 of the 25 ends played, but could not, after the slow start, catch LeSueur.
LeSueur was leading comfortably 20-13 on one end and the match could have been heading for a tight contest, with Schroen holding four close shots.
However, with his final bowl on that pressure end, a superb drive by LeSueur killed the end and the margin was still a significant amount.
The end score to the final was LeSueur 25 to Schroen 15.
LeSueur represented Tatura against other Goulburn Valley club champions in the Champion of Champions knockout tournament at Shepparton Golf on Sunday.
