Rob Paxton faces tough quarter-final match against Colin Walker at Wold Indoor Bowls Championship
Exeter's Rob Paxton will have to be at the top of his game tonight if he is to book a place in the semi-final of the World Indoor Bowls Championships.
The number ten seed made it through to the quarter-finals stage by beating Mark Royal at the Potters Leisure Resort in Hopton-on-Sea yesterday.
Paxton had looked all set for the exit in his quarter-final match as he lost the first set 10-3 and found himself 7-3 down in the second set, with just two ends remaining.
However, Paxton turned the match around by scoring a maximum count of four on the penultimate end to tie the set. Paxton then drove the jack into the ditch to win the set 8-7 and then conjured up precision draws to take the tie-break and to secure an unlikely win.
