Carmarthen suffer a bad day at office
DINEFWR and District Ladies Bowls League leaders Carmarthen experienced a bad day at the office and a 30-22 loss at Gwaun-cae-Gurwen's green, only able to establish a solitary point.
And it could have been even worse if the luck hadn't swung in Carmarthen's favour on rink two. GCG's Noreen Liles was 15-12 in front of Mair Evans going into the last end, but three accurate woods were delivered by Carmarthen to tie the rink. The third Evans wood went to a nervy measure, with Carmarthen sighs of relief sounding when the outcome went their way.
