C. Dogs (Ray Clegg, Michael Hutchinson) take the honours for superb performances in Halifax Bowling Club’s Indoor leagues.

Dogs found themselves only 6-4 behind after a rally. However at the last end Clegg and Hutchinson surrounded the jack with their bowls and were holding several shots. Beverley, the skip for Little & Large had only to play a strong wood into the head to cut down C. Dogs advantage but twice he sent his fast running bowl too wide and missed the head for C. Dogs to score a “6” and take the game by 10 shots to 6.
