Frustrating day for Jackaroo women
Australia's queens of the green have endured a frustrating afternoon at the World Championships in Adelaide taking home only one victory from four matches today while their male counterparts managed to claim three victories of their own.
Australian singles player Karen Murphy left Holdfast Bay Bowling Club empty handed today following contrasting defeats at the hands of Canada's Kelly McKerihan 7-21 this morning before a close titanic battle with Norfolk Island's Debbie Wilford which ended going Wilford's way 17-21. Murphy now sits 5th overall after nine matches heading into tomorrow's final two rubbers of the qualifying rounds.
Murphy will be searching for two late victories tomorrow as she takes on Thailand's Songsin Tsao , currently 17th and Israel's Ruth Gilor, 8th, in bid to march up the ladder ahead of finals.
Lynsey Armitage, Natasha Van Eldik, Rebecca Quail and Kelsey Cottrell had a mixed day on the greens with an early comprehensive win against Canada 26-14 before a tight and action-packed afternoon match against Israel in front of a vocal and energetic crowd which ended in a thrilling 16 all draw on a final bowl measure. The Aussie quartet trailed 10-14 midway through the match which finished just 10 minutes shy of its allocated 3 ½ hour limit.
In the overall standings, Scotland and Malaysia occupy two of the top three spots in the women's fours but are a half and one game adrift respectively of leader Wales.
