Jo Edwards quest to regain the World Cup bowls crown she surrendered last year continues to gather momentum with the New Zealander now the only unbeaten competitor in the women's draw.

Edwards, a three-time champion at the tournament, extended her record in section two to 7-0 after contrasting victories over opponents from China and Spain on the greens at the Warilla club on the NSW south coast yesterday.

The Black Jacks stalwart breezed past Y Yan 13-4 13-2 and then encountered her first significant resistance when Janet Dando secured a 6-6 draw in the opening set before the Kiwi claimed the decider 11-4.

Edwards, who is assured of advancing to post-section play on Monday, has three matches remaining including a potentially tough clash with South African Tracey-Lee Botha.

Australian Karen Murphy tops section one despite being upset by lowly-ranked Japanese representative Masako Satoh 9-7 9-10 2-1.

Mark Casey, another local favourite, also had his winning sequence ended when Malaysia's Izzat Sharmeer Dzulkepie won in three sets 8-5 10-5 3-2.

The Australian still leads New Zealand's Tony Grantham on sets and points differential.

Grantham rebounded from his loss to Casey yesterday to edge past Irishman Gary McCloy 7-6 7-6 before crushing Heng Heck Pang (Singapore) 17-2 14-4.

In section one, Jeremy Henry's title defence is on track as the Australian extended his record to 7-0.
