The final of the Mullumbimby Bowling Club 2017 Triples Championship was played on Saturday December 16 and a high-quality, tight game resulted.
Ashley Lumsden, Sean Doherty and Shane Knight got away to an early lead and held a four-shot buffer after four ends.
The game then settled down to a tight tussle with shots hard to come by.
By the 14th end Ben Leeson, Richie Northcott and Mark Holton had levelled the scores at 15–15.
The lead then changed four times until Holton’s team was able to score four shots over the closing stages to run out winners 21–19.
At Byron Bay
Dianna Ricketts and Brett Luker (2 + 16) won the Christmas Mixed Pairs at the Byron Bay Bowling club two weeks ago.
Linda Child and Bulla Burton on (2 + 9) were runners up while Jeff Fleming and Judy Wright took third and Denise and Paul Corcoran slipped in from Lismore to claim fourth place.
‘Every team got a prize of Christmas Cheer,’ the club spokesman Syl Reid said.
