Prom fight back to level the scores

CLEVEDON Promenade Bowling Club welcomed Clarence Blues to a six-rink Over-60s Triples match.

CLEVEDON Promenade Bowling Club welcomed Clarence Blues to a six-rink Over-60s Triples match.

The match was played in good spirit under bright sunshine and most rinks were nip and tuck all morning, a shot or two here and then a couple to the other side.

However, by the 16th end of the 18-end match, all looked lost for the Prom, as two of the Vikings rinks were down by a total of 45 shots, although the others were faring slightly better and the total shot difference was 15.

Determination won through and the Prom fought back, bringing the final score to 119 shots each and the Vikings won the match on a rinks difference of four rinks to two.
