At Monte Mar Bowls Club on a lovely sunny morning on the 24th March 2023 Quesada Swallows played Javea Green Eagles for the North v South trophy as winners of the Southern league and Northern league respectively. The match was watched by supporters from both clubs. The match was played on a points only basis with overall shots not counting.
After 10 ends Javea Green were leading on 3 rinks and losing on 2. Quesada rallied and with only 3 ends left were winning on 3 rinks, drawing on one and losing on one with the scores very close on 2 of the rinks.
With one end to go it was nail biting time as it all came down to the result on one rink to decide the winner. If Javea tied it would have meant an extra end had to be played.
Fortunately for Quesada they bowled some superb bowls to hold 3 shots to be in a winning position by one shot with the last bowl to be played by the Javea Green skip. His bowl came to rest perfectly requiring a measure by the Umpire. The measure went the way of Quesada who therefore won the event and the trophy.
On the green after the match the Southern league Division A winners trophy and the North v South trophy were presented to the Quesada Swallows Captain.
A lovely meal was provided and enjoyed by all in the Belfry opposite Monte Mar complex.
