Bowling News USA - July 9, 2014 European Women's Championship 2014, Women's Team England Retains Gold Medal
TEAM - ENGLAND RETAIN GOLD MEDAL AND TEAM CHAMPIONS TITLE
Block 2, Squad 1 Danni Hopcroft joined the combined bowlers group, again to complete the required games for Masters Qualification whilst the remaining team waited for squad 2. Hopcroft added a valuable 624 pins to her total with games of 236, 208 and 180. Squad two was topped by the Catalonians with 2702, just above Wales in second with 2695.
Block 2, Squad 2 Games of 999, 1106 and 1134 lifted England into second place in the squad with 3239, just 75 pins below squad leaders Sweden on 3314. Germany took squad third with 3136.
Overall and Finals England's closing team total of 1134 over Sweden's1059 and Germany's 1003 secured second-place overall in the combined squads, leaving the team 132 above Germany and just 38 behind Sweden. In the semi-finals, England defeated Germany 958-941 (+17) and Sweden defeated Denmark 1039-967 (+72) to meet England in the finals. In the finals there appeared little between the teams, as eventually Sweden gained close to 25 pins on England headed to the last few frames, before three open-frames from Sweden made for a very small crack in the scoring that England managed to prise-open, bolstered by Autum Chamberlain's seven-in-a-row run of strikes and 267 game to tame Swedish anchor Jenny Wegner's 244. Nerves and tension ran high, as England finally defetaed the Swede's1049-1025 (+24) to retain the European Women Team Championships gold, the medal that each member of the team had the hearts set upon.
Block 1, Squad 1 Games of 1098, 982 and 1035 saw England complete their first three-game block in the 5-woman team event at the head of the table, with 3115 (207.7). Hayley Rumkee bowled in the combined players group as sixth team member and herself added 634 pins to her All Events total, finising her squad third. England are 29 pins ahead of second-placed Germany on 3086 (205.7).
Block 1, Squad 2 saw Sweden (Andersson, Wegner, Planefors, Andersson, Hultin) take their squad lead with games of 1065, 1038 and 975 for 3078 (205.2).
Overall Combining the first two squads, England remain the block/squads leaders ahead of Germany in second and Sweden in third. Greece are fourth with 2949 (196.6).
ALL EVENTS AND MASTERS - LISA JOHN TAKES SILVER
Following the team and combined player groups, England boasted two bowlers in the top-8 with Jo Allsebrook 4th and Lisa John 5th, and a further three in the top-24 with Hayley Rumkey 15th, Autum Chamberlain 18th and Hayley White 21st. Danni Hopcroft was just 18 pins short of the top-24 in 27th place.
The pairings for the Masters was unfortunate for England as Hayley Rumkee met Autum Chamberlain in the first match, which saw Chamberlain defeat her team mate 2-1, as Hayley White was also defeated 2-1 by Wedelof Denmark 2-1 with a final game of just10 pins difference.
The pairings for step 2 also saw Chamberlain drawn against team mate Jo Allsebrook, who would win the match defeating Chamberlain 2-1. Lisa John defeated Daria Pajak of Polamd 2-1. The draw for step three put John against Allsebrook, from which John would defeat Allsebrook 2-0 to meet Mai Ginge Jensen (DEN) in the Semi-Finals.
As if there had not been enough drama already, with England facing each other three times in the Masters steps, Lisa John was topped in game one of her semi-finals as Jensen shot a powerful 246-game aginst her 171. Meanwhile Diana Zavjalova (LAT) narrowly beat Kamilla Kjelsen (DEN) 217-211 in their opener. With tensions running high, Jensen and John matched each other through game two, with John finding the eight pins required to take game two and square the semi-final one game a piece. Kjeldsen beat Zavjalova 217-204 to square their match also, before Zavjalova won her third game 226-155 to proceed to the finals. There was, literally, nothing between John and Jensen in their deciding game - which ended in a tie on 224-224. High drama as the ladies prepared for a single-frame roll-off to decide the winner, which John won 9-7.
The finals saw Lisa John and Diana Zavjalova together. Another very close start as Zavjalova defeated John in game one 193-192, but John found more pins in game two to win 204-178. Game three saw Zavjalova defeat John 269-210 to become the Master Champion for 2014.
