Clarrie Dunbar Indoor Bowls Club beat Weston St Andrews in Wessex League Central Region
Clarrie Dunbar fell agonisingly short of taking the 16 points they needed to top the Wessex League Central Region table despite cruising past Weston St Andrews on Sunday.
Although Clarrie were already guaranteed a place in the knockout stages, a maximum-point victory would have taken them level on points with Bristol at the summit.
Two solid home wins kept them on track and, although Andy Colebrooke’s quartet were comfortable 27-8 winners at Weston, Craig Doughty’s four were held to a draw to leave Clarrie with 15 points from the 91-49 triumph. Russell Francis and Keith Bailey led their home rinks to victory by ten and 13 shots respectively.
Clarrie have been drawn against Poole-based Dolphin in the first knockout round and the match will take place on Sunday, March 10.
