CONNAUGHT Bowls Club, Attleborough, had an intense week of five competitive short mat fixtures.
The highlight was Connaught A's defeat of Norwich-based First Bus in the first leg of the Norwich Cup semi-final.
Connaught A beat First Bus at home by 15-9 over 12 triples matches of six ends apiece. Results (skips' names); R Wells 15-1, 5-2, 4-3; S Bragg 6-6, 7-1, 6-4; T Musk 3-11, 2-6, 6-2; L Fallows 7-2, 6-7, 2-7.
Ray Wells, Diana Adcock and Sylvia Parsons maintained their 100 per cent record in the competition with a storming display. Sheila Bragg, Ollie Allen and Russell Hales also had a good evening. The other triples each won a match in a team display which gives Connaught A a reasonable chance of doing enough in the away leg to reach the final. However, First Bus will be tough opposition on home mats. All to play for.
