Men’s Triples Championship

The team of Allan Barron, Mal Burton and Leith Oldham (pictured) defeated Bruce Eagles, Ian Linford and Matt Sharrett 19-11 to be the Men’s Triples Champions for this season.

In the semi finals Barron’s team defeated the team of Shane Loftus, Pat Murray and Kyle McIlroy in a very competitive match 17-14 after being level at 14 all with two ends to go. In the other semi final, Eagles’ team came from behind to defeat the team of Colin Jasper, Peter Snow and Denis Croker 16-9.

In the final Eagles’ team started strongly to lead 5-0 after two ends but thereafter were out bowled by a more consistent team on the night. Leith Oldham had an excellent game as lead and his efforts were complimented by strong performances from Mal Burton and Allan Barron. Bruce Eagles played some big bowls towards the end to keep his side in the hunt but to no avail.
