OCC "B" v BLACKBIRD LEYS

On another pleasant sunny evening for bowls Blackbird Leys opened the stronger and by 5 ends were winning on 2 rinks and drawing on the other, and only because of a great start by Terry's rink we were two shots up.

At ten ends the picture had changed and we were winning on 3 rinks with only Graham's rink trailing by 6. By 15 ends Graham's rink had pulled level with the other rinks all winning.

With 5 ends to go we were winning on all rinks but a poor run by Neville's rink saw them losing by 6 shots.Graham's rink dropped a 5 on the second last end to go 3 down but the last bowl on the last end the Blackbird Leys shot bowl was taken out for 3 shots and a draw.

The  other two rinks won handsomely so a good 4.5-1.5 win but could have been better
