Brian bags singles title

Musgrave Hill bowler Brian Baldwin draws shot in the Summerland Singles trophy in Ballina on Sunday.

Musgrave Hill bowler Brian Baldwin recovered quickly from an early deficit to capture the $3000 Summerland Singles title 31-27 in Ballina on Sunday. Baldwins opponent, Tamworths Nathan Wise, took the early ends and raced to a six-shot lead using short ends and a strong driving game. However Baldwin, playing steadily and slowly, wrestled back the lead. Having recaptured the mat, Baldwin rolled out long ends which undermined Wises driving and allowed him room to draw shot and eventually capture the title.

The mere fact that Baldwin and Wise contested the final confounded the critics, who had expected this years Summerland Pairs champions Neil Burgess and Australian No 2 Shane Globits to feature in the final game. As it turned out nothing could have been further from the truth, as Globits was knocked out very early in the round robin section and Burgess was knocked out in the post sectional stage.

Evans Heads John Lang finished highest out of the local bowlers, making it to the quarter final where he fell foul of Alan Carver 25-17.
