GORDON Monk and Mandy Wilson claimed the ABA Mixed Pairs title at Adel, defeating Martin Lally and Kath Taylor in the final.

Lally and Taylor started well, taking the first three ends to lead 3-0 but Monk and Wilson replied by winning the next three ends to take the lead at 5-3. The match continued to be nip and tuck as Lally and Taylor edged ahead 8-7 only for Monk and Wilson to claim four shots at the next end to lead 11-8.

Although Lally and Taylor rallied to make it 11-9, Monk and Wilson got the four points they needed to win the game and the ABA Mixed Pairs trophy.

The Doris Ruddock 50+ Pairs event will be taking place at Middleton Community on Sunday. Entry is now full, but spectators welcome and refreshments will be provided all day.
