Smith overcomes Mordue challenge to claim first Spen Winter Sweep success
Kez Smith ensured it was third time lucky as he claimed a first Spen Winter Sweep win of the season last Saturday.
Smith had been beaten in his previous two final appearances but he overcame Chris Mordue 21-15 in the final to earn victory.
Morude was seeking a third final win and the early stages were nip and tuck as the pair were level 3-3 after four ends.
Smith pulled clear to move 9-3 up after eight ends and at the ninth he was lying a pair but Mordue turned peg, playing a great bowl to run the block for a pair.
Instead of Smith leading 11-3, Mordue had pulled it back to 9-5.
