The Bowls North Premier League resumed this week for Round 4 with cold and blustery conditions greeting bowlers.
Beauty Point travelled to the undefeated Trevallyn, keen to improve their form away from home. The visitors shot out of the blocks, particularly on Mick Savage's rink who established a 21-7 lead after 17 ends over Scott Summers.
Summers' rink fought back late but eventually succumbed with the final rink score being 29-19 to Savage, who was the standout for his rink. Haydon Cannon and his rink collected 2 points for the Thunder with a 7 shot win over Paul Filgate while Bruce Howard took care of Lachie Sims by 8 shots to seal the overall result in a huge win away from home for Beauty Point.
Westbury hosted North Launceston who were looking to get their first win of the season. Anthony Lowery and Nick Webb played in a tight tussle all day with the former coming away with a 1 shot rink win. Nick Claxton played excellent in his first outing for North Launceston. Jeffrey Miller skipped his rink to a 6 shot victory over Les Watts while Mark Jones did the damage for North recording a massive 19 shot win over Julian Frost to ensure the visitors walked away with 10 points.
Cosgrove Park hosted Bridport in what eventuated as a nail biter. Byron Slater jumped out early to lead Rhys McDougall 10-1, but a late charge from both McDougall and his number 3, Maxine Monson, managed to turn the tide for the visitors who stole the rink win by a solitary shot 21-20. Chris Walker bounced back into the winner's circle this week with another 1 shot win, this one over Andrew Appleyard.
