12:40pm Friday 16th November 2012 in Sport
BROADWAY club star Amy Stanton successfully defended her Under 25s Women’s World Council Indoor Bowls title in Fraserburgh.
Stanton’s first game in her round-robin section was a tough encounter with Scotland’s Michelle Keenan.
The England ace lost the first set 9-1 before a lowscoring second saw the Worcestershire player triumph 6-2 after nine ends. She won the deciding tie-break 2-0.
Stanton, who works at Fosseway Garden Centre, Moreton-in-Marsh, won all five round-robin games before setting up a final rematch with Keenan after beating Kirsty Gardiner 2-0 in the semi-finals.
After four ends, Stanton, representing the Malvern Hills indoor club, was 5-0 down but she picked up the next five to win the first set 9-5.
The second was close and she went into the ninth end one shot down but then picked up two for an 11-10 victory, sealing her third successive world title.
