Louth Indoor Bowls: Yorkies hang on to last perfect record

Only Yorkies survived with an unblemished record following last week’s Morning Triples League fixtures at Louth Indoor Bowls Club.

They thumped Two Plus One 30-5, but were then given a harder time by bottom team Falcons before coming good in the latter stages to win 16-6.

The shock result saw Highgate Wanderers lose 15-11 at the hands of In A Minute who ruined their opponents’ 100 per cent record.

The Wanderers had earlier beaten Falcons 22-10, but now trail Yorkies by two points and have been matched points-wise by The Jays who enjoyed two wins.

They beat Mudlarks 11-6 and then survived a late fightback from Magpies for a hard-earned 14-13 win. Magpies had previously won 19-10 against Dreamers who in turn beat Mudlarks 14-12.

There were also highs and lows for Seagulls as they won 13-5 against In A Minute, but lost 15-11 to Two Plus One.

* Just one perfect record remains intact in the Evening Pairs League after just three matches.

The Barry Mountain and Pauline Thornton partnership have maximum points, but they had stand-in duo of Geoff Tyler and Michael Lee to thank for a 15-11 win over previously unbeaten Keith Castledine and Debbie Castle who dropped to third.

Paul Hayman and Linda Oldfield were also beaten for the first time, 17-12 by Keith Greenhill and Martin Oldfield, but hold second spot.

The battle of the pointless pairs was won by Vic Matthews and Derek Tomlin who beat John Williams and Jane Scott 13-9 to move third from bottom.

Noel and June Brougham also remained winless and second-bottom after losing 16-7 to Paul Dunham and Pat Morley, while Barry Jordan and Marion Rose moved up to fourth with a 15-12 win against David Gladding and Charles Rose.
