Howes' Open success

BENDIGO East lawn bowler Susan Howes savoured national success at the Australian Open on Thursday.

Howes teamed with Glenroy's Judy Stainton to win the Over-60s Women's Pairs at the Darebin International Sports Centre.

Howes and Stainton were too good for Audrey Hele and Patty Whorlow in the final, winning 18-8.

Meanwhile, Bendigo-raised Nathan Wilson won last night's men's singles final.

Wilson fought back brilliantly from 13-10 down to defeat former world No.2 Brett Wilkie.

It's back-to-back Open triumphs for the Wilsons as Nathan's brother Aaron won a year ago.
