There was a change at the top of the Louth Indoor Bowls Club Triples league last week when Highgate Wanderers opened up a two-point lead over Oaks with two comfortable victories.

They warmed up with a 15-4 win over Mudlarks and then in a one-sided game against Seagulls they powered to a 33-7 win scoring an 8, a 7 and a 6 in the process.

Oaks lost 18-11 to Two Plus One after leading 9-7 but maintained second spot with a 15-5 win against In A Minute.

Three teams are equal on points in third place with Mudlarks having the better shots difference despite another defeat, 17-15 to The Jays.

They had edged in front 12-11 after a slow start but their opponents grabbed a ‘5 and hung on for victory. It was good week for Jays as they also beat Seagulls 19-10 despite dropping a 6 along the way.

There was cracking game between Two Plus One and Dreamers, which finished 19-18 to the former. Dreamers trio of Kathleen Kimpton, David Raper and Doug Bentley had led 12-5, but the opposing team of Sheila Hopewell, Barry Toyn and Keith Castledine won five of the next six ends to lead 19-13, but were sweating on the last end as Dreamers almost pinched victory when scoring five shots.
