Champs on glory trail as chief ri­vals drop points

Llanelli Star - - SPORT -

REIGN­ING cham­pi­ons Lam­peter are hot favourites to re­tain their ti­tle in this year’s Ceredi­gion Bowl­ing As­so­ci­a­tion.

Lead­ers Cardi­gan and sec­ond­placed Lam­peter pre­pare to go head to head at the Gw­bert Road green in Cardi­gan to­day.

But the Cardis dropped four shots against Aberys­t­wyth in their lat­est out­ing and go into the crunch game only three ahead of their ri­vals, who have a game in hand.

To stand a re­al­is­tic chance of lifting the ti­tle, Colin James and Co need to pile up the points against the cham­pi­ons.

Lam­peter 92 (14pts) Queen’s Road 43 (0pts): Rink scores (Lam­peter names first): Henry Jones 26 Martin Phillips 11; Nick Ran­dell 17 Jamie James 12; Hari But­ten 28 Ted Sand­ford 7; Steve En­twistle 21 Brian Davies 13.

The top Lam­peter rink was skipped by Hari But­ten ac­com­pa­nied by Ron Thomas, Ed­die Thomas and El­fan James.

Cardi­gan 85 (10) Aberys­t­wyth 65 (4): Rink scores (Cardi­gan names first): Chris Rogers 12 Ian Pugh 21; Kevin James 35 Ar­wel Jones 16; Paul Ed­wards 23 Dai James 11; Paul Mon­ders 15 Roland Salmon 17.

Kevin James skipped the top home rink with Colin James, Clive Day and Brian Williams.
