Ngoc Hau (Lead) and Louise Amos (skip) played their way into the semi-finals of the 2018 State Champion of Club Champions Pairs held on 2-5 October at Rosehill Bowling Club.
They had a BYE in the first round and played their second round on the morning of 2 October which they won 18:16 over Wiseman Park. They returned the following day to play against St Johns Park whose skip is a Grade 1 Pennant player and won by 21:17. The fourth round took place on the morning of 4 October against Merrylands which was played in challenging conditions with heavy and wet green. Ngoc and Louise were able to adapt to the conditions better and won by a convincing score of 20:5.
The weather took a further downward turn in the afternoon when Ngoc and Louise had to play their quarter-finals match against Debbie Kelly and Kim Suckley from Wiseman Park (ex Dapto). It was raining heavily with all players completely soaking wet. However, all 4 players were determined to finish the match and get into the semi-finals. After playing 18 ends, the score was even at 16:16. They had to play an extra end to find a winner, with Killara winning by one shot!
The semi-finals match took place on Friday morning, 5 October. Killara was neck-to-neck playing against Bomaberry until the 11th end when the opposition team took 5 shots, followed by 4 shots in the next end. Killara went down in the end and lost their hope of getting into the final.
It was a good effort and great achievement playing at a State level competition.
