THERE were three bad league results for Lyme Regis Bowling Club last week.
Both men’s teams went down , 2-8 and 0-10 respectively to Greenhill. The championship side were up against it, with some superb bowling from skips Martin Puckett and Jamie Lockwood for Greenhill.
Greenhill A took revenge on Lyme 2 with a whitewash, reversing the earlier fixture between the two.
The ladies could only muster two points against Dorchester, a fine rink performance from Chris Barber’s team providing the only score.
The men were more fortunate in the 2 rink competition, securing a win into the next round after beating Bridport at home.
In the two friendlies, it was win-one lose-one against Den Teignmouth and Feniton respectively.
The men were not so lucky in their Top Club round against Dorchester, losing by two disciplines to 3.
