Margaret Abbott is Yamba Minor Singles Champion

Tuesday July 13

The final of the Minor Singles 2021 held court today with Margaret Abbott and Cheryl Mazoudier vying for this year’s title. Margaret chalked up some big numbers early in the game and had Cheryl on the backfoot right from the start. Though Cheryl picked up two consecutive 4’s later in the game and levelled on the 10th end – it was Margaret who streaked away to a 26 – 13 victory.

Congratulations to both players on an entertaining game. Marker was Lois Duncan. Just to add to her great day – Margaret took out the winner’s prize for the day as well.

Thanks to all umpires, markers, and officials throughout the competition.
