Wodonga bowler Kylie Whitehead remains well and truly in the hunt after day two of the Bowls Australia Champion of Champions.
Whitehead scored another two victories at Tasmania’s Kingborough Bowling Club on Thursday to remain one of two undefeated players.
She continued on from her strong opening day with a 21-12 victory against Northern Territory champion Shenayde Heldt.
Her consistency proved too much to handle.
Whitehead was also a class above in her second game of the day, defeating Western Australia’s Bev Scott 21-3 to put herself in a strong position for the final two matches.
“I’m just taking each game as it comes and trying not to look too far ahead,” Whitehead said.
“You never know what can happen, I’ll just be doing what I can and hopefully the result goes my way.
“If it doesn’t, I’ll be pretty happy that I’ve played pretty well and made it this far.”
Whitehead takes on South Australia’s Sandy Wallace on Friday at 8.30am, before facing Tasmania’s Lauren Banks in her final game at 11.15am, which will decide the title.
It will be the first time she has met either player.
“It’s not a bad way to go because you have no expectations,” Whitehead added.
The ladder after day two is: Kylie Whitehead (VIC) 12, Lauren Banks (TAS) 12, Sandy Wallace (SA) 9, Lee Benson (NSW) 3, Shenayde Heldt (NT) 3, Annette Tye (ACT) 3, Bev Scott (WA) 3.
