Melton Indoor Bowls Club hosted two further matches in the House of Townend-sponsored Warren Triples League on Saturday evening.

The match between Melton IBC and Syston Bowling Club saw the hosts want control from the start.

They built a commanding 15-shot lead within five ends, although Syston fought hard to close the gap, and reduced it to 12 shots after 15 ends.

But on the final three ends, Melton outscored their opponents 12 shots to 10 to clinch the aggregate win. The rinks were shared two apiece.

The other match between Barnstone Bowls Club and Belvoir Vale Bowls Club was a close-fought match.

At the halfway stage, Barnstone had an eight-shot lead, and they managed to held this advantage to the end, winning two rinks and drawing another.
