Saturday night brought two more matches in the Warren Triples League at Melton Indoor Bowls Club.

Syston BC and Barnstone began steadily, with the latter team taking a five-shot lead at the halfway mark.

But they could not pull away and eventually won by just four shots on aggregate with the rinks shared two apiece.

The other match between Belvoir Vale and Melton Bowlers also started very evenly with Bowlers taking a slender six-shot advantage after 12 ends.

But Vale fought back strongly over the last nine ends to forge ahead and win by 12 shots on aggregate with the four rinks again shared equally.
