LYME Regis Bowling Club’s championship side played a postponed game against Dorchester.
A really tremendous effort gave the Lyme bowlers an 8-2 win and, thereby, also an outside chance of avoiding relegation if they can secure some points against Greenhill in the last game of the season.
In the three friendlies, Lyme were well beaten by both Severalls and Crewkerne, whilst the game against Merriott was abandoned after four ends.
