“One of the finest Ladies finals in the history of the competition” brought the Valencian Championships to a fantastic finish.
SIX finals brought the Valencian Championships to a close last Monday and Tuesday and spectators were treated to a magnificent final match in the Ladies Singles.
The final between the 2018 champion, Ann Marie Robertson of the Emerald Isle, and Maggie Furness from Vistabella, was competed in a beautiful display of bowls.
The opening five ends saw the two ladies match each other point for point before Maggi Furness, despite having played in the Ladies Pairs Final earlier in the day, ground out a 19-10 lead to put the title within her reach.
Mini rocket Stephenson, however, had other ideas as, from a seemingly helpless position, she had her supporters on their feet, battling back to a 20-19 lead, scoring on eight consecutive ends without reply.
However, with victory in her grasp and holding shot, and with the final bowl of the 29th end, Furness delivered the perfect wood, moving the jack to give her the two points she needed to claim her first Valencian title.
The spectators agreed that they had just witnessed one of the finest Ladies finals in the history of the competition, a fantastic finish to two successful weeks of socially distanced lawn bowling at the Valencian Championships.
