STEVE Smith exacted a family revenge on Barry Lowden to win the J and J Sharp Agricultural Contractors Open Singles Lindal.
OPEN SINGLES BOWLS
Lowden had beaten Smith’s son Daniel in the semi-finals at the village club, but there was to be no further success for the King Alfred bowler.
He had opened the final with a couple of singles, but Steve soon got into his stride to build up leads of 8-3, 10-5 and 13-9.
Lowden dug in to get back to 14-12, but Steve then stepped up a gear to claim the next five ends and run out the worthy winner at 21-12.
The champion was on top form all day, gaining wins over Liam Howard, 21-14, Billy Harding, 21-10, and David Robinson, 21-9, in the semi-finals.
Lowden opened his account with a 21-8 win against Alex Spelman, was followed by victories over Kevin Rooney, 21-16, Andy Thornton, 21-14, and then Daniel Smith, 21-10 in the last four. Lindal Bowling Club would like to thank J and J Sharp Agricultural Contractors for continued support, the ground staff, kitchen and bar staff, markers and measurers for their efforts.
