David Cartwright and Greg Shilling fell at the final hurdle at the Victorian Master Pairs title on Friday.
Kyabram Bowls Club’s pairs champions David Cartwright and Greg Shilling fell at the final hurdle in their first bid to claim the Victorian Country Master Pairs title on Friday.
Playing on their home green, Cartwright and Shilling showed the same commanding form in winning their section on Tuesday as they had in claiming their first club pairs title two weeks earlier.
They then defeated clubmates Chris Preddy and Paul McInnes and City of Echuca’s Philip Thorn and Robert Taylor respectively in the last 16 and quarter-finals to reach the last four.
Friday morning’s semi-final ended up a close contest, but the Ky pair eventually got the better of Bendigo East’s John Crawford and Aaron Tomkins 18-16, despite the visiting duo scoring five on the second-last end.
That win set up an appealing contest for the afternoon’s final encounter against Rochester’s two-time finalists Les Walles and Daryl Hooper.
Cartwright and Shilling were right in the contest until the 15th end when the Rochy pair scored a four to take a 17-11 lead.
Four more shots to Walles and Hooper over the next two ends sealed the result.
Despite losing out in the final, it was an impressive debut display over the week from the Kyabram champions.
