Incorporating the Mens & Womens Bowling Associations of the County of Northumberland

Double Rink Champions

Both clubs could agree that summer was over as Benfield and Ponteland stepped out onto a cold and wet green at Gosforth this morning.
it certainly was a game of 2 halves. on one rink we had Skips G. Stapylton PE playing against D. Taylor BD, they managed to keep their game close with Ponteland ultimately winning by 3 shots.
This left Benfield's K Proctor with the task of making sure she beat PE's M Cowan side by 4 shots or more to secure victory for her club. At 10 ends, this looked as though it was going to be a close one as BD were leading by the 4 shots they would ultimately need, then unfortunately, PE had to make a substitution due to injury in the wet conditions - we wish Jen a very speedy recovery - this meant PE's replacement we need to work fast in order to pick up the pace of the green to support her team.
Eventually M Cowan's PE rink conceeded as they were unable to win across the 2 rinks as K Proctor won 31-12.
