Day three was individual eliminations for Compound Junior Women and Compound Junior Men round of 1/8 through to the end of the semi-finals. Austin Taylor entering his first match ranked 9th, shot against the 8th ranked Australian Archer Harri Howden. Austin dropped several points in opening two ends before coming back with three very strong ends scoring a total of 146. Despite Austin’s strong finish, he fell short of his opponent’s near perfect score of 149 of a possible 150 points.
On the women’s side, Bryanne Lameg entered her first match ranked 6th, against opponent Ella Gibson, the 11th ranked archer from Great Britain. Bryanne started the match down a slim margin before taking a lead into the final end, where her opponent tied the match. The match was decided by a shoot off, which led to both archers scoring a nine. Unfortunately, Bryanne’s arrow was outside her opponent’s by a slight measurement and all three of our Manitoba Archers have been eliminated from individual match play rounds.
Bryanne will compete in the Women’s Junior Team Event with fellow Canadian’s J’lynn Mitchell & Ashlyn Scriveni. The 4th ranked Canadian Women will compete in the 1/4 match against the 5th ranked Team Mexico at 11:10 AM, Saturday February 17th.
Moving on to the Team Rounds, Austin will be competing in the Compound Junior Men Team Event along side Cole Beres & Tristan Moran. The Junior Men’s team is ranked 3rd and will meet the 2nd ranked Australians at 11:40 AM on Saturday February 17th.
