Bowls: YABA success at the double for division one champions Selby
10:59am Thursday 15th August 2013 in Sport
SELBY are celebrating a York Amateur Bowling Association league and cup double.
Holgate WMC also suffered a shock 7-1 home reverse against relegation-threatened Rowntree.
Dunnington ended a good season as runners-up following a 7.5-0.5 home win over relegated Stewart.
RI Corinthians’ 6-2 home defeat by Holgate condemned them to a season in division two.
Haxby Road had a 7-1 home win over Hull Road Park and RI Amateurs ended their season on a winning note, beating visitors Rowntree 7-1.
Division two remains wide open at both ends. Shipton’s position as favourites to go up was thrown into serious doubt following consecutive defeats, 6-2 at Dringhouses and 7-1 at relegation battlers Harrogate.
Dringhouses now have a chance to capitalise on these slip-ups when they visit Harrogate in their final game.
Clifton are also waiting in the wings despite an 8-0 loss at West Park, only half a point behind Dringhouses and six adrift of Shipton. They also face a trip to Harrogate in their final game, with the hosts needing four points to avoid relegation.
Bootham beat relegated Poppleton Road WMC 7-1 to seal fourth place.
The division three title is also going down to the last fixture following Osbaldwick’s crushing 7.5-0.5 win at University.
