PUBLISHED: 09:31 15 June 2018
There were three bad league results for Lyme Regis teams in the past week, writes Paul Moffitt.
Both the men’s teams went down, losing 8-2 and 10-0 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 Two 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 two rink competition, securing a win into the next round after beating Bridport at home. In the two friendlies that were played it was a case of won one and lost one in meeting with Den Teignmouth and Feniton respectively. The men were not so lucky in their Top Club round against Dorchester, losing by two disciplines to three.
