Larne & District Indoor Bowling League: Craigyhill entertained Larne and Kilwaughter this week, with both teams looking to recover from early season defeats.
The first half was hotly contested as Craigyhill’s new signing Stephen Duff ensured the home team’s first point of the season with a 14-9 victory. It was the visitors, however, who took a slender two-shot lead into the second half, as in-form Stephen McKee won 13-6.
The second half was again hotly-contested as Stanley Colborn’s quartet looked to turn the game in Craigyhill’s favour. David Graham was the star turn at third as the home four recorded an excellent 15-3 success. On the other mat, David McRandal’s L&K four played well and finished with a five to ensure the overall win 19-3, and 5-2 for the visitors.
Cairncastle and Cairndhu shared in the first half of their match but Cairncastle were the stronger in the second session and won both rinks for a 6-1 result.
At the Kirkpatrick Rinks tournament it was Alan McLean, Gavin Johnston, Mark Petticrew and Darren Witherspoon, representing the League’s top four teams, which made up the semi-finals. McLean and Johnston progressed and it was LB<C’s night as they went on to lift the cup. Congratulations to the rink of Fergie Duff, Stephen Dalrymple, Jason Kerr and Gavin.
