Abbott and Higgins take gold in Major Pairs final

The final was played between (from L to R): Dave Higgins, John McInness, Anthony Mansour, and Terry Abbott


It was a blustery start for the Everglades Men’s Lawn Bowls Major Pairs final on May 23 when Anthony Mansour and John McInness took on ex-Woy Woy players, Terry Abbott and Dave Higgins.

Despite only putting their names down for fun, newbies Abbott and Higgins headed home with gold after winning by just three shots.

Mansour and McInness got away to an early 8-2 lead but by the halfway mark, it was anyone’s game.

With three ends to go and the scores level, Abbott and Higgins picked up a five and managed to win by three shots, 25-22.
