Sparkites are the division champions after 28-2 win

A crushing 28-2 victory over Creaky Knees saw Sparkites become winners of division 2 of the Louth Indoor Bowls Club’s Men’s Over 60 league with two games to spare.

Rivals Yes Fred were beaten 15-12 by Louth but won their second game, 24-8 against Saints, to ensure runners-up spot.

Third-placed Wranglers lost 16-14 to bottom team Rotary, who now must win both their remaining games to have any chance of getting off the bottom rung, and one of those games is a crunch match against next-bottom team Creaky Knees.

A 22-14 win for Humberstone against Jackos secured the Monday Evening 2-bowl Triples title despite rivals Chalkers thrashing Strollers 30-7, which means they finish four points behind the leaders. Third-placed Alford were beaten 17-15 by Mystics.

Castaways put one hand on the Monday Lunchtime trophy when coming good over the last few ends to beat Froggies 13-9 and open a four-point gap over Kestrels, who suffered one of their worst defeats for a while when losing 24-7 to a Stones trio of Janet Norman, Joan Stones and Sylvia Stainton.

Third-placed Anglers are still in the hunt for the runners-up place despite a heavy 20-8 defeat against Ifs & Buts whilst a 17-10 win over the Goodies kept Evergreens in with a chance of second spot.

Barrie Robinson and Pat Willoughby just held off the challenge from Alan Watson and Alice Ashwood to win 15-14 and clinch the Tuesday Mixed Pairs title ahead of Colin & Carol Smith who pinched the runners-up spot from Tony Willoughby 
and Pam Clapp who they beat 14-9.
