By Deniliquin Pastoral Times

The Campaspe Valley Bowls District Champion of Champions was just out of reach for Mathoura Bowling Club’s Singles Champion Mark Quor.

City of Echuca’s Brett Reiner was victorious in the final, winning 26-16 last weekend.

Earlier in the day Quor defeated Rochester’s Ash Vesty in the semi-final in a close contest between the two bowlers.

In the final it was Reiner who jumped to an early lead and despite Quor’s best efforts, it was the Echuca bowler who was champion.

Quor said his opponent was more consistent throughout the match.

‘‘I’m pretty happy with how I performed in the contest; I can’t complain,’’ he said.

‘‘I think this is the best I’ve performed in the singles Champions of Champions.

‘‘Mathoura has its 21 Up Singles Tournament in March so I’m looking forward to that. I’ll just need to practice a bit and be consistent.’’

Quor also bowled at the Finley Bowling Club 45th annual Quadripartite and dominated his singles game winning 25-4.
