Women’s State Championships – Day 4 Wrap
Cabramatta have claimed the 2021 Women’s State Triples Championship in emphatic fashion, sealing the title with a solid 21 – 9 win over Adaminaby in the final. The Cabra trio of Mia Hotson, Jamie-Lee Worsnop and Ellen Ryan were in great touch from the outset of the championship, winning every match with at least an end to spare. All three players were in fine form, combining exceptionally well across all their matches. They arguably saved their best performance for last too, drawing superbly on the brilliant South Tamworth greens.
For Adaminaby, a club with just 15 female members, the runner-up result is an incredible result. The Snowy Mountains club claimed wins over Glenbrook, Lake Cargelligo and West Tamworth to progress to the final, and despite the loss, they performed admirably. Particular mention must go to Glenda Daal, who is no stranger to State Finals, having also reached the Women’s State Pairs Final with Adaminaby back in the 2020 State Championships.
Adaminaby’s semi-final against local favourites West Tamworth was a cliff-hanger. Adaminaby jumped out to a 14 – 1 lead, but West Tamworth were not going down without a fight. They clawed their way back into the game to trail by 3 going into the last end. Skip Sherilee Stewart tried to convert the head to make three but had to settle for two, giving Adaminaby a 19 – 18 win. In Cabramatta’s semi-final against Port City, there were only a couple of shots between the two sides in the early stages before Cabramatta pulled away to win 26 – 8.
In the final, Adaminaby did their best to keep pace with Cabramatta, but the Bullants were too strong and too consistent. Throughout the final, the camaraderie between players was just as exceptional as the bowls played, entertaining the crowd from start to finish. Congratulations to Cabramatta, Adaminaby and all teams who competed in the State Triples Championship.
