Jason Banks has been playing brilliant bowls throughout this tournament. Can’t wait for the final tomorrow on YouTube. Jason is actually from Inverurie where my brother and his wife live which is about 20 mins drive from my home town of Aberdeen in the North East of Scotland.

Way to represent 🇨🇦 Amy and Owen!World Junior Indoor Championships – Day 5

World junior champions crowned
Two tense tiebreaks brought the Junior World Bowls Championships to an exciting close at the County Antrim indoor bowls club in Northern Ireland yesterday, when Harry Goodwin won the men’s singles title for England and Australia’s Brianna Smith won the women’s singles title.

While Goodwin’s final win over Queenslander Nick Cahill denied the Aussie a rare double, he also chalked up a golden double for himself, after he partnered England team-mate Ruby Hill to a win over Smith and Cahill in yesterday (THURSDAY)’s mixed pairs final.

‘Tiebreak Torment’ is how players describe the sudden death nature of the brutal one-end deciders that break a one-set-all deadlock – but spectators enjoyed the drama as Goodwin beat Cahill, 10-11 9-4 1-0, and Smith returned an 11-5 5-6 1-0 scorecard against Hong Kong China star Yu Yee Sin.

Smith looked the winner all the way when she scorched to an 11-5 win in the first set, but Yu, who despite her calm appearance, admitted she was close to panic mode, kept her head and dug deep to edge the second set 6-5 and force Smith into tiebreak territory.

Brilliant bowls from both players on the shoot-out – a dead-length toucher from Yu and an accurate running bowl from Smith – left the result in doubt until the umpire Mike Clewer, after measuring several times, decreed that the Aussie’s bowl was closer by a fraction of an inch.

Smith, who is 23, had played consistently throughout the tournament, and was a worthy winner, but the 24-year-old Yu, a product of the Hong Kong Youth Development scheme, captured the hearts of spectators with her quiet demeanour and unstated self-assurance.

‘I may feel panicky inside, but I take a deep breath, try to be calm, and concentrate on the basics, to boost my inner confidence,’ Yu explained, while an overjoyed Smith, who plays for the St John’s Park club in Sydney, was close to tears, insisting, ‘This win is beyond my wildest dreams.’

Goodwin, a 25-year-old plasterer from Sittingbourne, also expressed his disbelief in winning a world title. “I never thought it was possible,” he said, “But it’s been a great week for me. Winning the mixed pairs with Ruby was fantastic, but to add the singles title is unbelievable.”

In the final, Cahill, who is only 20, had the better of the opening set, and forged into an 11-6 lead after seven ends, and held on to win the set, 11-10, and the Aussie, a professional bowler, who plies his trade on the Gold Coast, looked the likely winner when he led, 4-2 in the second set.

However, stringing together a sequence of five unanswered scores, Goodwin turned things around, winning the set, 9-4, after eight ends, and controlled the tiebreak with inch-perfect drawing to the jack, forcing Cahill into playing weight.

A good strike saw Goodwin’s shot disappear, but England’s Under 25 captain simply replaced the shot with a prefect draw, and Cahill’s valiant attempt to beat it on a draw slipped frustratingly past the jack, and left the tall Englishman with the shot that gave him the world title.

Results:

MEN’S SINGLES:

Final: Harry Goodwin (England) bt Nick Cahill (Australia) 10-11 9-4 1-0.

WOMEN’S SINGLES:

Final: Brianna Smith (Australia) bt Yu Yee Sin (Hong Kong) 11-5, 5-6, 1-0.

Update of day 1 at the 2022 Youth World Championships in Ireland. The first match of the day for our Canadians (Amy Spence & Owen Kirby) was their mixed doubles match Vs Scotland. Unfortunately, they lost both sets 3-9 & 4-9. The second match of the day was Amy facing off against Australia in the women's singles. Getting used to the green, Amy was able to secure the second set (6-5) but ultimately came up short in the tie breaking set. The last game of the day was a men's singles match for Owen. Owen played against Wales where he too was growing more comfortable with the indoor surface. However, Owen lost two closely contested sets 3 - 5 & 3 - 6. Wishing Amy and Owen the best of luck for the coming days!

Mise à jour de la première journée des Championnats du monde jeunesse 2022 en Irlande. Le premier match de la journée pour nos Canadiens (Amy Spence & Owen Kirby) était leur match de double mixte contre l'Ecosse. Malheureusement, ils ont perdu les deux sets 3-9 & 4-9. Le deuxième match de la journée a vu Amy affronter l'Australie dans le simple féminin. S'habituant au vert, Amy a pu s'assurer le deuxième set (6-5) mais a finalement échoué dans le set décisif. Le dernier match de la journée était le match de simple masculin pour Owen. Il a affronté le Pays de Galles, où il s'est également montré plus à l'aise sur la surface intérieure. Cependant, Owen a perdu deux sets très disputés 3 - 5 et 3 - 6.
