COWDENBEATH Bowling Club members produced some great results over the past seven days, writes Jack High.

On Tuesday, at Kelty, the ladies' Fife triples, Jean McKenzie, Linda Duff and Jen Johnson, played a strong Lochore triple and were 11-4 down but rallied to be two down playing the last end.

They managed a single and gave the Lochore triple a fright. Unlucky a few times but good experience.

In the Fife rink, Helen Hunt, Linda Moyles, Charlotte Somerville and Emma Connor were at Broad Street against Abbeyview and were 12-10 up after 14 ends but unfortunately lost the last three ends and the game. Another decent performance.

The Hat night winners were Jim Watson and John Galloway.

The Babbs results went well for Cowdenbeath with all four rinks winning.

Daryll Stewart's rink beat Broad Street 18-13, Lindsay Black's rink beat Rosyth Civil Service 27-10, Robert Thomson's beat Dunfermline 22-19 and Archie Muir's rink won 22-8 against another Civil Service rink.

An outstanding overall performance in the West Fife League by the men this week when they travelled to Dunfermline West End in a top of the table clash.

Willie Wightman, Daryll Stewart, Robert Thomson and Andy Johnstone won 26-10. Jim Watson, Eric McMillan, Steven Hunter and Robert McFarlane won 26-10 and Billy Allan, Dave McKay, Peter Graham and Lindsay Black won 31-6. 87-25 up on shots and a 7-0 win on points to put Cowdenbeath top of the league after four games. Still a long way to go though!

At a very heavy Headwell, the Cowdenbeath Ladies team of Helen Hunt, Linda Duff and Charlotte Sommerville, lost their first league game 13-11.

The Fife Bowling Association district semi-finals were at Crossgates.

Despite heavy rain, the green played quite well.

Robert Thomson had a hard fight against Coaltown of Balgonie and in a low shot scoring game he went 17-15 ahead.

He then won with the first four of the game. In the pairs, Billy Allan and Wullie Wightman lost in a close game to Jonny Duff and Alan Ramsay from Broad Street. They were 10-6 up but lost a few ends and were 12-12 after 14. They eventually lost the last three ends. In the rinks, Mitch Drysdale, Lindsay Black, Steven Hunter and Robert McFarlane played a team from Kirkcaldy St Clair. They were very dominant and won 28-5 after eleven ends before St Clair conceded.

On Friday afternoon Lindsay Black won his Addison West Fife singles game at Abbeyview against Dougie Hynd, from Townhill, 21-12 in his third soaking of the week.

Top 13 results did not go Cowdenbeath's way on Friday night with only the triples of Jim Watson, Brian Miller and Eric McMillan winning and Mitch Drysdale and Lindsay Black stealing a draw at Kelty.

Daryll Stewart and Wullie Wightman in the singles, the pair of Davie Duff and Alan Moncur and the rink of Lee Connor, Eddie Hastie, Davie McKay and Peter Graham, all lost.

Due to a mix-up by Kinglassie there was no friendly game on Saturday so there was a fun day with six triples being drawn out of the hat. Lee Connor, Mitch Drysdale and Lindsay Black won all three of their games but more importantly a good time was had by all - and nobody got soaked!!! There was a good buffet and a few beers consumed before the Champions League final.

On Sunday night, at Dunfermline West End, Mary McKay and Andy Johnstone played the quarter-final of District 8 Scottish mixed pairs against a really good Dunfermline Northern pair of Tracy Robertson and Daniel Martin.

Early on Daniel played a couple of good running bowls to change heads and burnt an end when Cowdenbeath were lying a few.

The North pair played a bit more consistently on the rink, which was hard to find a road and deservedly won 20-9.

Andy got the wrong side of a couple of bowls in the later stages when he was chasing shots but the better pair on the night won. They will be a formidable pair.

On Monday afternoon the senior fours of Archie Muir, Kenny Salmon, Eddie Hastie and Bobby Reekie play their quarter-final

On Monday night, also in the quarter finals, the pair of Steven Hunter and Robert McFarlane play

At the same green Billy Allan, Lindsay Black, Mitch Drysdale and Andy Johnstone play in the rinks

It has been quite a good week for Broad Street bowlers.

On Monday. Jim Crawford progressed in the senior single hand and in the Scottish the triples of Craig Watson, Johnny Duff and Kenny Watson also progressed. On Tuesday the both Babbs teams lost, team one against Cowdenbeath and team two against Headwell.

On Wednesday the league side went to Lumphinnans and managed to get the full seven points.

On Thursday Craig Watson progressed in the Fife single hand and the triples of Jim Crawford, Andy Nelson and Kenny Watson also had a good win.

On Saturday the visitors were Coaltown of Wemyss and with three mixed rinks, the home side came out on top.

Scores were, home skips first, May Watkins 21 Haig Hutchinson 19, Tuck Jeffrey 15 Helen Goodall 7, Jack O'Hagan 22 Jack Wrigley 7.

A total of 58 for Broad Street and 33 for Coaltown of Wemyss.

An enjoyable day was had and a lovely meal was served after the game.
