Lyme II see off Dorchester in one-sided contest

Normal club activities have resumed at Lyme Regis following a week’s hiatus for the annual tournament, writes Paul Moffitt.

There was varying fortunes for the league teams. The ladies and Lyme II fared best! The ladies had a good 9-1 win against Dorchester, but came unstuck in the third round of Top Club against a very strong Bridport side.

This game was played in atrocious conditions which the Bridport ladies handled better than Lyme.

Lyme II men were in action twice this week, catching up on a previously cancelled game against Dorchester B. They banked only two points against Portland BO, but a fine 10-0 win over Dorchester was the result of the second outing.

However, the championship side are struggling in their division with just two points from their meeting with Dorchester and nothing to show for the rearranged game against a very potent team from Poole Park.

You may also want to watch:

In the friendlies there were two narrow losses and a draw. In the game against Ottery St Mary, all four rinks were within two shots of each other with Ottery just being the victors.

Fifty plus bowlers and spectators from Dursley BC played on Sunday, the organiser of the tour keeping the destination a secret.
