Winscombe came up short against Portishead RBL in the final of the North Somerset Bowls Association KO Cup.
Playing on Portishead's green left them at a slight disadvantage, but Winscombe won on two of the five rinks and lost by just one on another.
But they could not avoid falling to defeat by 100-90 as their rivals claimed the silverware.
Winscombe enjoyed a comprehensive friendly win at Ashcombe by no fewer than 50 shots and also had an enjoyable afternoon against a touring team from Ledbury.
Cancelled from 2020 due to the pandemic, Ledbury claimed a narrow win after seeing a fixture at Ashcombe called off.
