Dootsons are top pair at Padgate
9:29am Tuesday 15th July 2014 in Sport
TETLEY’S pair Denis and Barbara Dootson scooped the Padgate Festival Bowls crown.
The duo beat the Woolston pairing of Ian Porter and Pauline Cook in an excellent match which took one-and-a-half hours to complete.
Porter and Cook looked in control following an early lead and then from 10 across raced away to 19-12 with two counting bowls for game.
However with her last bowl, Dootson came in to win the end.
Porter-Cook took the following end to stand all, but the Dootsons held their nerve on the next three ends to run out 21-20 winners.
The cup and prize money was presented by club president Steve Brown.
