Congratulations to Mosman Park’s Catherine Chappelle, the 2020-21 Henselite Women’s Champion of Champions Novice Singles winner, defeating Leeming’s Jan Gleeson in the final at the Stirling Bowling Club on Sunday 16 May 2021.
Earlier in the Semi Finals Chappelle defeated Jeni Smith (Willetton) 21-16, while Gleeson beat Alison Smith (Doubleview) 21-13.
Early in the final it was an end for end affair, with Catherine Chappelle the first to win two ends in a row and take a 6-3 lead. Jan Gleeson then hit back winning three ends in a row, including a four, to lead 10-6 in the race to 21. However Chappelle was not to be out done and put together a string of ends to retake the lead at 12-10.
Again, Gleeson put together a run of three ends stretching her lead to four. Chappelle then worked her way back with a run of winning ends and leveled the match at 17 all with both players now within one end of victory. It was Catherine Chappelle who grabbed the occasion and ended the game with that magical four to move to 21-17 and take home the 2020-21 Trophy.
