First seed falls in Perth

4 November, 2017

On the first day here at the Co-operative Funeralcare Scottish International Open it was a very happy PBA Tourcard winner, Perry Martin, who took a great win over Top 16 player Jonathan Ross.

In a great match (which can be viewed on the WBT Youtube) it was Perry Martin that took the first set in a great tussle with Jonathan. 6-8. Into the second set it was Ross that turned on the heat and powered through to take the second set 9-4 and forced the much needed tie break. Alas, it was not too be as Ross took the first end but then Martin who played superb bowls and took the next two ends and match to go into the second round.
