Margaret Morris wins county champion of champions

Margaret Morris of Banbury Borough BC has won the county champion of champions after beating Katherine Hawes, Oxford City and County BC in the final.

14 Club Singles Winners were in the draw for the Champion of Champions which was played in fairly good conditions until the Final when the heavens opened. The day provided excellent bowling up to and including the final which was a very closely fought game.

Margaret got off to a very good start but by the 6th end Katherine had evened the score. Until the 17th end the scores were level at 13-13. With conditions getting extremely wet and the light fading Margaret picked up 4 shots on the next two ends but Katherine came back again with a 2 to make the score 15-17. By the 23rd end the score was 17-19 in Margaret’s favour then Katherine picked up a 1 to make it 18-19. The last end saw Katherine holding shot until Margaret played her last wood into the head and ran the jack to pick up the winning 2 shots.
