The Campaspe Valley Bowls Division 1 grand final came down to one shot on Sunday.
Tongala’s division one bowls team lost out to Moama on the last bowl of the last end of a thrilling Campaspe Valley Bowls Division grand final on Sunday.
In the end, the premiership came down to one shot and whether Moama skip Matt Liverton could disturb the close shot bowl Tongala was holding.
Moments earlier his first heavily weighted attempt had missed.
But with the large crowd at Rochester Bowls Club and all the players from both teams focussed and suddenly silent, he stepped up and played the perfect drive to remove the shot bowl and secure the premiership plaque.
With the scoreboards showing Moama one shot up at the start of the last end, there were many questions going around the crowd as to what would happen in the event of the scores being tied.
The answer was each rink would return to play one more end.
There was still more drama after the final shot, when it was discovered the scoreboard had been wrong going into the last end. The scores were in fact tied and whoever won the last end was destined to take the premiership.
Tongala lost to Moama by 17 shots in the semi-final two weeks ago and trailed by 15 shots at lunch on Sunday. But the line-up showed great determination to fight back and level the scores at 63-each after 66 ends.
After that there was never more than a few shots between the teams all the way to the finish.
