Canada’s Westlake advances to World Cup Semi-Final
Ottawa, Ontario | March 21st, 2016
Pricilla Westlake (Delta, British Columbia) is enjoying a fantastic debut at the 2016 World Cup. Outstanding play during the round robin matches ensured she stayed at the top of her section throughout the six days of sectional play. With wins against defending champion Siti Zalina Ahmad (Malaysia) and Australia’s Carla Krizanic, Westlake demonstrated that she has what it takes to compete with the best in the world.
A second place finish in her section earned her a spot in the quarter finals where she faced Mayalsia’s Emma Saroji. Westlake took the first set decisively with a 9-4 score, but Saroji came back in the second set to force the match to a tiebreaker end. With everything on the line, Westlake got down to business and took the three end set without giving up a single point to Saroji for a final score of 3-0.
Westlake’s semi-final match will have a familiar feel as she will be up against defending champion Sita Zalina Ahmad of Malaysia. Having defeated Ahmad in round robin play, Westlake knows what she needs to do to win, “It is a dream come true and I can’t wait to give it my best.”
The match will be livestreamed at 10:00AM Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) and can be followed at http://livestream.com/powerproductions/2016bowlsworldcup.
