The Warren Triples League returned to Melton Indoor Bowls Club on Saturday night after the previous weekend’s action was postponed by poor weather.

Belvoir Vale Bowls Club took control from the start against Melton Bowlers and after nine ends were ahead by a commanding 25 shots.

Melton attempted to respond, but Belvoir were too strong, forging on to win by 48 shots at the finish for full points.

* In contrast, the other match of the evening between Barnstone and Market Overton was a very tight affair.

Marko opened a three-shot leading the first five ends and after 15 still held the same slender margin.

Barnstone picked up 12 shots over the final three ends, but Marko took 10 to hold on by just one shot. The rinks were shared two apiece.
