One of the outstanding games of the season was played in  Halifax Bowling Club’s Autumn leagues, in the Wednesday Evening Fours when  two of the outstanding teams, Arriva (Les Holmes, Graham Hickey, Robert Holmes, Graham Wilson) and Up the Edge (Chloe Hirst, Tom Gasson, Frank Higgins, Scott Smith) were in opposition.  Arriva took a 2-0 lead before Up the Edge levelled the game at 3 shots each .Hirst the lead player for Up the Edge set a short jack, 2 spots up from the” T” to full length and Holmes, the lead player for Arriva alternated with a maximum  mark of “T” to “T”  and a minimum length jack of 23 metres.

The sides were level at 6 shots each with two ends to play. Up the Edge bowled to perfection as a team and scores a “2” and a single to take the game by7 9 shots to 6.

This result means that Up the Edge lead the division with 14 points from 7 games played. Clayton are second with 14 points from 9 games played and Arriva have dropped down to third place with 12 points from 8 games played.

In a top of the table game in the Monday Evening Fours, leaders Amethyst (Les Holmes, Pauline Holroyd, Philip Holroyd, Gareth Coates) were indebted to superb play by their number 2 player, Pauline Holroyd as she was outstanding as her team increased their lead at the top of the table with an emphatic 20-12 win over challengers Up the Edge (Scott Smith, Keith Hatzer, Trevor Gasson, John Sharp). Amethyst were leading 16-4 before Up the Edge made a mini revival.

Spartans (John Hamer, Pam Robinson, Brian Holder, David Holder) welcomed back “skip” David Holder, after a recent operation. David excelled as his team beat Rockets (Con McGinley, Marian Firth, Gordon Akroyd, Stuart Coates) by 15 shots to 11.

There was a “nip and tuck” affair between Don’t Be Short ( Gary Robinson, Del Haigh, Ron Bax, Michael Calvert) and One Direction (Ronata Eyres, Ann Booth, Linda Lees, Eddie Eyres). One Direction quickly moved into a 9-2 lead but Don’t Be Short pulled back the lead to go into a 10-9 lead. With two ends to play new bowler for One Direction , Linda Lees bowled in an excellent bowl for her team to score a “3” and take a 12-10 advantage. At the last end , the lead player for One Direction, Ronata led a superb bowl which no one could beat as One Direction had their first win of the season and take the game by 13 shots to 10. A superb game with all players playing their part.

In a rearranged game in division 1 of the Tuesday Evening Pairs, Pat & Pete (Pat and Peter Grant) played one of their best bowling games of the season as they went into a 6-1 lead against top of the table Bowl You Over (Tom Robertshaw, Andrew Gee). Holding a “4” they saw the skip for Bowl You Over, Gee, bowl in for “shot” to make the score 6-2.  At the start of the last end Pat & Pete held a 9-7 advantage but again Gee bowled superbly for his team to score a “3” and take the game by 10 shots to 9. This result leaves Pat & Pete firmly at the bottom of the table with Bowl You Over at the top.

However Bowl You Over came up against a very determined Dad & Lad (Ken Sharkey, David Laycock) in their recent game. With Sharkey leading to perfection Dad & Lad moved quickly into a 7-1 lead before the leaders, Bowl You Over scored a “1”, “3” and a “3” to take a 8-7 lead with one end to play. Dad & Lad were holding a single before Laycock, with his final bowl, bowled in for a “2” for Dad & Lad to inflict on Bowl You Over their first defeat of the season by 9 shots to 8.

Beta Blockers (Alan Singleton, Eleanor Carney, Chris Lindsey, John Crewson) lead Division 2 of the Wednesday Fours with a 9-6 victory over high flying Knock Kelly Stars (P. Dunderdale, I. Wade, K. Burnett, Derek Squires) . Fair of Face and Guys & Dolls are next in the table with 10 points from their games played. Fair of Face (Mary Crabtree, Bronwyn Bannon, Lynda Canning, Geoff Harrison) are enjoying one of their best seasons. Their latest win was a 16-6 win against Kingsley 9marilyn Milner, Ken Cheslett  Maurice Thorpe, Donald Asquith)
