The Pialba bowler looked cool and collected as he made a remarkable comeback from 11-4 seven shots down to take the match, 25-17.
“Richard got off to a very good start right from the word go, so it was just a matter of hanging in there.
“He’s a very good player, very methodical in how he plays and I just thought if I kept hanging in there and stuck to my drawing game that would get me through.
“Thankfully it paid off,” he said.
