The latest two matches in the House of Townend-sponsored Warren Triples League were played on Saturday night at Melton Indoor Bowls Club.
Melton Bowlers took control of their derby against Melton IBC early on to forge into a 19-shot lead within nine ends and kept pushing hard to increase the gap to 32 shots after 15 ends.
IBC picked up 15 shots to their opponents’ nine over the final three ends and claimed one rink to deny the Bowlers maximum points.
The other match between Belvoir Vale and Syston was a much tighter contest and after five ends Vale were ahead by just one shot.
Both teams pressed for control of the match, and after 15 ends, Syston had turned the score to their advantage to lead by six.
But Belvoir Vale fought back to clinch the aggregate by just three shots, with the rinks shared two apiece.
