The spotlight this week falls on the bottom two teams in Division 2 Halifax Ladies (Lynda Canning, Ann Ranton, Mavis Walker, Ann Oates) and Halifax “Extra” (Linda Robson, Eleanor Carney, John Crowson, Chris Lindsey). Halifax “Extra” included in their team three bowlers new to competitive bowls, Carney, Crowson and Lindsey. The trio who were looking forward to playing league bowling in the summer are making steady progress in Halifax Bowling Club’s winter league.

Canning was the star performer for Halifax Ladies as she beat Robson 21-3, Ranton won her first game of the season as she defeated Carney 21-16. However a combined effort by Crowson and Lindsey saw Crowson beat Walker 21-8 and Lindsey came out on top 21-5 against Oates. Halifax “Extra” took the honours by 15 points to 14.
