Indoor Bowling Results Week 3 October 2018

The outstanding result in the Friday Evening Pairs of Halifax Bowling Club’s Indoor Autumn leagues was the 9-6 defeat of T.N.T. (Pete Grant, Neil Mort) by Gary & Pat (Gary Robinson, Pat Grant). In a keen “nip and tuck” encounter T.N.T. went into an early lead with all four players contributing to an excellent game of indoor bowls. However at three ends, T.N.T. were holding 2 “4”’s and a “2”, but the skip for Gary & Pat, Pat Grant bowled in to take “shot”. At the start of the last end Gary & Pat were leading by 8 shots to 6 leaving all to play for, but Gary and Pat maintained their advantage to score a single and take the game by 9 shots to 6.

Veterans Merit 2018

The Vets had their last competition.  ( the Merit )  on Wed. 3rd October.
16 Vets entered this year and the first round saw some interesting results, particularly Patrick O'Connor beating Gary Robinson and Ian Sutcliffe getting the better of Steve Wandiak.
In the Semi - Final Ray Ciegg (everyone's favourite to win the competition) played Patrick who pulled out his best performance ever to stop Ray in his tracks and surprise us all.
 The other semi was played between 2 weary opponents in David Armitage and Tony Clayton. In a close encounter Tony justifiably gained the victory.
This may have helped Tony in the Final against Patrick because this was yet another nailbiter and played in good spirits with the score at all-but across and Tony wlnning the point needed to exit the Green a very weary man indeed. 
Thanks to both players for a very entertaining Final and all the vets who entered this last competition of 2018
