From the ditch

2015-05-13 06:00

FOR a flying start all contestants were present at the drawn pairs championships for 2015. Players are drawn to pair up and play, so who knows what will happen.

Sannie Balzer and Omo Dinkelmann­ were drawn to play Erika Fishcer and Mandy Balzer, maintaining pressure all afternoon and now play off against Bryan Paul and Ernie Weykes.

Gerhard Balzer and Olifie Lubowitski were drawn against Chris Fischer and Wessel Pretorius­, who proved to have the edge, and won.

The final pairing - Roy Thomson­ and Karen Cordy against Herbert Balzer and Francois van Rooyen - proved to be a nail-biter, with Roy and Karen going ahead 17-9 by tea time.

Then Herbert put on the pressure to almost draw level at 17-15 before the last end and were holding until Roy chased into the head to take the last end. Roy and Karen will play Chris Fischer and Wessel Pretorius in the other semi-final.

Jason Bonorchis continued in the novice singles to the semi-finals, but his run ended there, but well done on finishing in the top four
