Louth tightens grip on aim for top bowls spot

Louth Indoor Bowls Over 60’s were in action at home this week where the league leaders entertained third placed Sleaford.

After five ends, the Louth teams of Malcolm Pearce, George Willoughby, Dave Wise, and John Welsh on rink one, Geoff Tyler, John Brown, Keith Kelly, Bob Ledgerwood on rink two, Norman Stocks, Mally Hewson, Bob Southwell and Horace Cope on rink four were in the steering position and looking good for wins.

On rink three, Barry Taylor, Dave Ellis, Tony Saunders and Rob Lamb were trailing along with Rob Tear, Jon Utnage, Howard Hurst and Colin Smith on rink five.

After 12 ends, Louth were winning on two rinks and drawing on one, but still very much in control of the aggregate at 58-39.

By 18 ends, Louth had opened up their winning rinks to four, drawing on one and coming second on the last, this was continued to the conclusion on 21 ends.

The win sees Louth tightening their grip on the top spot and looking forward to their next game later this month, away at Lincoln.
