Lynn Page bowls for New Earswick in their narrow victory over Scarborough in the North Eastern League
New Earswick Indoor Bowls Club edged past Scarborough 71-70 in the North Eastern League.
Their three winning rinks picked up eight of the ten points at stake to move into fourth place in the league.
Away, Pat Walker’s team scored 17 shots without reply between the fourth and 12th ends to go from 5-0 down to lead 17-5. Despite losing the last three ends they had done enough to win comfortably 23-14.
Monika Morgan’s side were involved in a close game when the score stood at 9-7 in their favour. Four successive winning ends took the score to 15-7.
The home side briefly came back to 15-11 before the visitors won two of the last three ends to take the game 18-13.
At home, Marjorie Watson’s team were 8-4 down before taking a grasp of the game, winning all but three of the remaining 12 ends to win easily 25-11. Surprisingly Margaret Moss’ team struggled and could only win five ends throughout their game as they lost 32-5.
Meanwhile, home advantage was satisfying for Mike Wadsworth’s team which included Cliff Hunter, Ray Calpin and Malcolm Thompson as they overcame Nigel Gunn’s Immingham team in the Railway Federation Eastern Region Indoor Competition final.
After dropping a single on the first end they responded with a four before dropping another two singles then taking a two to make it 6-3.
Immingham got a single on the penultimate end and laid shot on the last with one wood left.
The opposing skip missed out on the second needed to take the game into an extra end.
Barry Walker’s side lost out in their semi-final 7-6.
Clarke calls shots in Eagles victory
EMILY CLARKE gained revenge over fellow York bowler Zoe Eagles with a 2-0 victory in the semi-finals of the EIBA National Ladies Under-25s Singles at New Earswick.
Eagles beat Clarke 21-17 in the ladies singles three days earlier, but it was Clarke who qualified for the national finals at Lodden Vale next month.
Clarke had earlier beaten Lydia Cutmore 2-0 while York’s Hayley Macdonald lost 1.5-0.5 against Katy Baxter, while Eagles was given a bye.
