The outstanding performance of the week in the indoor bowling leagues at Halifax Bowling Club was by G. 2 +  1 (Barbara Gee, Jimmy Bainbridge, David Gee) in Division 1 of the Friday Triples when they beat Red Mist (Les Holmes, Philip Holroyd, Keith Hatzer) by 19 shots to 13.

Red Mist have not lost a game for three seasons but an inspired display by skip David Gee saw Red Mist win only four ends to G. 2 + 1’s 13 ends. The game over the opening period was “nip and tuck” before G. 2 + 1 opened up a 15-10 lead. The tactics from lead G. 2 + 1 player Barbara Gee saw her changing the jack length at every end to stop the Red Mist trio from settling to a length. Skip David Gee bowled into the head when his team were down and bowled in for extra shots when they were holding shot. All the G. 2 + 1 trio bowled superbly as Philip Holroyd was the star for Red Mist, but his efforts proved to no avail as G. 2 + 1 achieved a memorable victory. Red Mist only scored at 4 ends but they scored 3 “3”’s and a 4 in their total of 13 shots.

Clayhouse ( Tony Riley, Mick Skwarek, Hedley Kettlewell, Ian Johnson) moved to the top of Division 1 as they beat Fiery Jacks (Brian Nedham, Jim Eaton, John Ingham, Mick Walker) by 19 points to 14. Riley, Kettlewell, and Johnson all registered wins as Eaton starred for Fiery Jacks with a 21-20 win against Skwarek. Clayhouse have moved to 187 points from their 11 games played with Lindley and Silsden P.F. 11 points behind on 176 points.

Silsden P.F. (Philip Holroyd, Alan Hughes, Don Metcalfe, Keith Hatzer) beat Clayton (Philip Lister, David Moore, Andy Peel, Bev Shutt) 17-12. Only Peel tasted success as he beat Metcalfe 21-12.

The two teams relegated from Division 1 in the Tuesday Evening Pairs, Young Guns (Chloe Hirst, Frank Higgins) and Jammy Duo (Lynda Mort. Neil Mort) played out a superb game in their opening fixture of Halifax Bowling Club’s Indoor leagues. Jammy Duo registered a “3” at the first end before Young Guns replied with a “3” at the second end. Young Guns increased their lead at the next end to 5-3 as they scored a “2”. However Jammy Duo went into a narrow 6-5 lead as they scored a “2” and a single. The game went “nip and tuck” before the start of the penultimate send saw Jammy Duo hold a narrow 8-7 advantage.
