19:03, Jul 01 2013

Barb and Tick Reid won the Geraldine Temuka Indoor Bowls Open Pairs with a convincing 11-8 win over fellow Geraldine Town and Country Club (GTCC) Ray Christensen and Graham Imms, on Saturday.

The final was always going to be tense.

The Reids played well; Barb played good lead bowls while Tick Reid played some skilled shots to be ahead 7-5 after seven ends.

On the eighth end, Christensen played some forceful bowls to sit with five shots on the head. With their last bowl, Tick Reid played a blinder to move the kitty to his bowl and take the shot.

After Christensen burnt the last end, an extra end was played but with the Reids six points ahead, Christensen simply had too much work to do.
