Llanelli Star - - SPORT -

AS the qual­i­fy­ing sec­tions for the Car­ruthers Shield ap­proach their fi­nal stages, there is still much to be played for.

Sec­tion 1 re­mains wide open as Parc Wil­liam failed to raise a side to play against Car­marthen on Satur­day. They must now try to rear­range the match be­fore the Na­tional Open draw starts in mid-June, other­wise, the re­sults of matches they have played in will be dis­re­garded and they will be ex­cluded from the com­pe­ti­tion next year.

Am­man­ford Park take over as lead­ers of Sec­tion 2 af­ter a big home win against Dafen Wel­fare, but are left with two away matches over the next fort­night.

Bryn­hyfryd’s vic­tory at Pon­tard­du­lais puts them in con­trol of Sec­tion 3 and this week­end’s match at Blue An­chor should de­cide which of the two will go on to the next part of the com­pe­ti­tion, but Pon­tard­du­lais could still over­take them if Blue An­chor win and Bont pro­duce a mas­sive win at home to Cal­sonic.

In Sec­tion 4, short-handed Loughor vis­ited Llanelli and won on three of the four rinks with Dylan Wil­liams and Dean Be­van bat­tling out a drawn game. Loughor now lead Gor­seinon, who only man­aged a draw against New Lodge, and meet them for a de­cider at Parc Wil­liam on Satur­day.

Sec­tions 5 and 6 will also be de­cided this week­end when Parc y Dre host Cru­saders and un­beaten Kid­welly Town and Graig Merthyr meet at Parc Stephens, with a drawn match giv­ing the qual­i­fi­ca­tion to Graig, who hold a su­pe­rior shot dif­fer­ence.

In the Llanelli & Dis­trict Bowl­ing League, Gow­er­ton hosted newly pro­moted Llan­gen­nech & Bryn in divi­sion one and won on all four rinks, giv­ing them max­i­mum points.
