The spotlight this week in Halifax Bowling Club’s Indoor leagues focuses on Division 2 of the Wednesday Fours. Leading the way on 16 points from their 11 games played is new team  Beta Blockers ( Alan Singleton, Eleanor Carney, John Crowson, Chris Lindsey). Having started playing indoor bowling last year, the four players have continued to improve their play. In a rearranged game against title challengers  Fair of Face (Mary Crabtree, Paul Green, Lynda Canning, Geoff Harrison, Bronwin Bannon), Beta Blockers completed an emphatic 16-8 success. However in this week’s game against  the experienced Jack High  ( Pat Wright, Terry O’Brien, Stuart Coates, Ninnian Donnelly) the superior play of Jack High saw them beat Beta Blockers 13 shots to 5.

Indoor Bowling Results Week 11 November 2019

Brian Winrow has been one of the star players in Halifax Bowling Club’s Indoor leagues. Winrow starred in key games in the Monday Afternoon Fours and Wednesday Fours.

In the Wednesday Fours, leaders Northern Lights (Les Holmes, Mick Walker, John Beverley, Michael Hutchinson) faced second in the table Black Cats (Brian Winrow, Andy Balmforth, John Sharp, Paul Gill). With two of the best lead players in the league in opposition the game was set to be a thriller. However superb leading by Winrow and an off day by Holmes saw Black Cats race into an early lead. Winrow took the mat up the rink and bowled short of the “T” to bowl about 28 metres and consistently placed his bowls around the jack. Northern Lights had no answer to Winrow’s play as with the help of his team mates, Black Cats ran out 17-6 winners. Both teams are now level at the top of the league table with Northern Lights having a superior points difference.
