2 Bowl 1/4 Finals

Monday saw the quarter finals of the 2 Bowl Singles, and the first representatives to the men's semi final programme. 3 of the 4 ties were not good for home players, as they were all defeated, with only past champion Wooler's Brian Davidson edging out Gosforth's Michael Bennett gaining a home win.


Muras Cup Retained

Northumberland's Muras Cup team went in to their double header today, looking to overcome their opening defeat at Cumbria last weekend. Northumberland played Durham first at Gosforth, and then Yorkshire at Ponteland in the afternoon. Northumberland team had a great day, won both games and retained the Muras Cup.


Balcomb Defeat

Northumberland Balcomb Team (County Double Rinks) played Yorkshire this afternoon at St. Georges BC. Yorkshire started well with both rinks being up at the 5 end stage, this was further built on at 10 ends with the score extending to a 15 shot lead. Unfortunately, Northumberland couldn't make any in roads to this deficit and conceded with 3 ends to play - with the score being Northumberland 30 Yorkshire 51.


Triples Opening Round

The 1st round of the triples competition was played this evening; in some ties there was late drama - with Mark Terry (HX) triple scoring a 4 on the last end to win at Portland by 1, Graeme Donkin (RY) went one better and scored a 5 on the last end, also to win by 1 at Rockcliffe, and finally there was an extra end required to seperate Norman Keith (GV) and Clive Knott (HE), with the Garden Village men coming out on top.
