Indoor Bowling Results - Week5

The spotlight this week falls on Division 2 in the Wednesday Fours in Halifax Bowling Club’s Indoor leagues.

Leading the way were Ever Hopefuls (June Barron, Jennifer Templeton, Avril Humberstone, Maywynne Denby) and Guys & Dolls (Eileen Dovernor, Ron Bax, Jeff Dovernor, Val Bax).

In a “nip and tuck” encounter the all ladies Ever Hopefuls took an early advantage and at the start of the last end were holding a 10- 8 lead. Jeff Dovernor for Guys & dolls, played his best two bowls of the game as he held “shot” with his two bowls, Val Bax added a third to give Guys & Dolls a “3”. The experienced skip Maywyyne Denby for Ever Hoperfuls, played into the head to try and remove the scoring bowls but twice narrowly missed the head to give Guys & Dolls a “3” and take the game by 11 shots to 10.

Ron Bax, fresh from the world championships at Potters had his best game of the season.

Indoor Bowling Results - Week4


Ron and Val Bax are experiencing a week to remember in Halifax Bowling Club’s Indoor league.

In their latest league game they included Ann Robinson making her debut as their lead player in their game against the experienced Phoenix (Patrick O’Connor, David Atkinson, Ken Sharkey, Peter Ogden). Don’t Be Short also included a new player D. Haigh along with Val and Ron Bax. Ann rose to the occasion and with superb leading, Don’t Be Short moved into a early lead as they scored a “5”, “4” and a “3”. Phoenix fought back and at the start of the last end had pulled the score line back to 19-15 needing a “4” for a draw. In rather an anti climax they managed a “3” to make the final score 19-18 to Don’t Be Short.

Ron and Val have spent the remainder of the week at the World Indoor Bowling Championships at Potters, where they have been enthralled at the high standard of play.
