First match of the day here at the Just Retirement Professional World Indoor Championships was the second round match between Connor Cinato and Jamie Chestney, both of whom had qualified for this event and strangely enough, both of them having received Awards at the World Bowls Tour Gala Dinner and Awards night here at the resort less that 2 weeks ago.
Into set one and it was Chestney that opened up proceedings in a blistering fashion, whatever Cinato could produce, Chestney went one better and by the 6th end it was Chestney who was 8 shots ahead of Cinato. Digging deep Cinato managed to grab a double off Chestney in end 7 but then Chestney sealed his fate in end 8 by whisking away a single from Cinato to take the first set 3-10.
Chestney opened up set two, rocking Cinato by taking the first 3 ends in quick succession to go 5-0 in front. Cinato rallied and picked a double in end 4 but again it was Chestney that took 2 singles in the next two ends. Cinato fought hard and managed a single in end 7 but again Chestney sealed his fate with a single on end 8 to take the set and match. 3-10, 3-8
