Ben Leeson, Richie Northcott and Paul Gray (L-R) won the District Triples shield last weekend.

The Mullumbimby Ex-Services Bowling Club has narrowly won the 2019 District Bowls Triples final against Kingscliff played at their home greens last weekend.

With the semifinals contested in the morning and the finals in the afternoon it was a big day of bowls with a happy ending for the Mullum club.

The reserve title was won by Bangalow while Condong took out the seniors contest. 

The open final produced the best bowls of the day with Kingscliff moving to a 5–1 lead after five ends.

The Mullumbimby side of Paul Gray, Ben Leeson and Richie Northcott fought their way back into the contest and by the tenth end they were in the leading by 8–6.

The match then settled into a battle with neither side able to secure a big score to break away.

By the last end the Mullum team were clinging to a two-shot lead. With only the skips to play Kingscliff held two shots but the Mullumbimby skip, Richie Northcott, produced a great bowl to move the jack and give Mullumbimby a shot.

Kingscliff were not to be denied, however, and skip Steve Massey took Nothcott’s bowl away to give Kingscliff one shot.

Neither skip was able to change the situation and Mullumbimby hung on to deservedly take the title over a gallant Kingscliff by the thinnest possible margin, 18–17.
