Sam hatches junior singles win


Sam Hatch Caccamo shook off the disappointment of going down in the pairs to claim the Junior South Pacific Bowls title yesterday.

The Putney Tennyson bowler withstood an early challenge from Urunga's Corey Wedlock before running away with a 31-17 victory.

"I was a bit nervous at the start because I know he is a good player," Hatch Caccamo said.

"I thought he was going to beat me. It was tight at the start and he got a bit of a lead.

"He obviously didn't perform as well as he could but I still got the win so I am happy."

More than 80 young bowlers competed during the week of competition braving hot and dry conditions at the Warilla Bowling Club.

Hatch Caccamo was in fine touch throughout the tournament and was a dominant force in both the singles and the pairs.

His opponent Wedlock was in similar quality form and can take some solace from his win over Hatch Caccamo earlier in the day in the pairs.

Wedlock and Dylan Skinner put in a strong performance to defeat Hatch Caccamo and Mason Lewis 28-18.

The pairs victor praised the display of his singles final opponent, but lamented what could have been.

"It was probably the worst game I played all week," Wedlock said.

In the under-16s final Luke Grainger of St John's Park defeated Kyle Hansen from East Lakes Sports 31-20.

Grainger consistently made a plethora of clutch shots when his rival put the pressure on and eventually marched to the title.
