WE struck good weather at long last to play the final of the Club Triples Championship.
The result was:
L Cross (skip), R Gillogly, D Lewis 21
G Bell (skip), T Rushworth, N Platt 18
This match was a battle from the very first end, with Gwen Bell's team winning 11 ends over Lillian Cross's team of seven ends.
Gwen's team picked up a three on first end, then to pick up another four on the fifth end to make it 9/4.
Then slowly the one pointers from Gwen's team mounted up and by the 14th end, Lillian's team were down 9/15.
Alarm bells were ringing for Lill's team, what happened in the next five ends begs belief!
Sad for Gwen's team to go down a six on the 17th end, with Lillian's team picking up nine shots to then make it 18 all.
The jack was once again rolled for the extra end for a decider.
The leads battled, then the number two positions took over rolling the jack further up the line with the skips trying to protect their team's bowl's positions, with Lillian's team coming out the winner with a three. Congrat's to both teams who played with good sportsmanship.
