PRO snippet – Junior Champions 2018

After a fantastic weekend of bowls the NI Private Greens Bowling League added the Junior Inter Association title to the Senior title won in June.

Ballymoney BC was the venue for the Friday night opener against the NIBA. The Private Greens started well and quickly quietened  their opponents on way to a 6 Points to 1 win.

The action then switched to Limavady BC for the Saturday morning crunch game against the host NIPBA team. This game was a much closer contest but eventually the Private Greens took another 6 – 1 victory.

Knowing that any kind of win over the BLI at Coleraine BC in the final game would be enough to clinch the championship the team quickly settled and roared to a 7 – 0 win.
