THE Proser­pine Bowls Club hosted the Mackay Dis­trict Cham­pion of Cham­pion Triples on the week­end.

It was a week­end of mar­vel­lous bowls by both the win­ning teams and their op­po­nents in ev­ery sin­gle game.

The Proser­pine team of Dean Love­lock, Scott Kin­n­ear and Ben Cutrone won their game against Pi­o­neer Val­ley on Satur­day morn­ing 25-17 and then were de­feated by Glen­den in the af­ter­noon 18-28.

In the semi fi­nals Air­lie Beach went up against Mackay City and Seaforth faced Glen­den with City and Seaforth win­ning their matches. The fi­nal was won by City 24-23 against Seaforth. This was an epic match that started at 1.15pm and was com­pleted at 6.05pm un­der lights.

The shots played by both teams were of a high cal­i­bre, with the ends killed eleven times dur­ing the course of the match.

On Satur­day af­ter­noon, a round of the mixed triples was played.
