Former Scottish international Kay Moran has clinched a semi-final berth at the NSW Open thanks to a last bowl bomb over Australian number four Bec Quail.
Leading 2-0 playing the final end of the tie-break, but down two in the head and in real danger of being eliminated if she got it wrong, the Cabramatta southpaw coolly delivered amongst steady rain as she hit her target perfectly to secure a 9-3, 3-9, 2-1 victory.
As a result, Moran will now meet the nation’s top-ranked female player, Katrina Wright, in Thursday’s semi-finals after she also accounted for former Australian teammate Anne Johns in a tie-break.
In the opposite semi-final, Neutral Bay’s Lou Witton, who is also through to the final four of the women’s pairs, will meet Merrylands’ Corinne Crouche.
“It could have easily have gone wrong,” Moran said following her thrilling win.
“But I knew the shot was on.
“I tried to play enough weight that if I connected with anything the jack would go back and I would still be ok.
“But it was the right weight, so I’m delighted.”
