Ever since the draw for the @Imagine Cruising World Indoor Bowls Championship draw was released, the Stewart Anderson v David Bolt head-to-head has been a topic of conversation with everyone, and when the pair eventually did meet up in their highly anticipated 1st Round clash, it certainly did not disappoint with both players at the top of their game.
Hard earned singles were scored over the first six ends of the opening set with Stewart shading a 4-2 lead.
David broke the scoring pattern with a double as did Stewart. However, David could only muster a single on the last end to give Stewart the upper hand and the first set 6-5.
In the second set, the scoring was again kept to a minimum by both players and once again they stood all square at 3-3.
However, with some continued inch perfect accuracy from both player victory went to Stewart who rolled in singles over the next four ends to put the result beyond double at 7-3 and an end to spare and a straight sets victory.
Match Result -
Stewart Anderson (Scot/3) bt David Bolt (Eng/Q) 6-5, 7-3
