Former carnival champions, Illawarra’s best bowlers and international stars are chasing a quarter-final spot in Wednesday’s singles knockout rounds at Towradgi and Corrimal bowling clubs.
Former South Pacific singles champions Steve Glasson and Shane Garvey are on opposite sides of the draw and are playing at Towradgi and Corrimal respectively in their first knockout match.
Glasson plays Cootamundra’s Scott Rush, with the winner to meet either Andrew Swan (Wenty Leagues) or Brian Entwistle (Warilla). Garvey plays Maitland City visitor DJ Dilworth and the winner will stay at Corrimal BC to play the winner of the clash between Warilla’s Geoff McGillivray and Helensvale’s Paul Cruze.
Among the top all-Illawarra match-ups in round one at Towradgi are Windang’s Rick Malley versus Figtree RSL’s Tony Dunn. On an adjacent rink, Phil Reynolds (Dapto Citizens) will play Jesse Noronha (Warilla).
The rising stars of Australian bowls will be looking to make their presence felt.
Thirteen-year-old Jono Davis takes on Thirroul youngster James Jones at Towradgi, while the Ben Glasson (Mt Lewis) v Greg Jeans (Glenbrook) clash at carnival headquarters should be a highlight.
Two-time Illawarra Zone 16 singles champion Brett Pieper takes on Corrimal clubmate Reagan Marmont, while the clash between Fred Thompson (Dapto Citizens) and David Wakeling (Towradgi) should be close.
The singles quarter-finals and semi-finals will be played at headquarters Towradgi on Saturday. All finals are on Monday.
