This was a top class match with Hale straight into his stride with both line and length and Lamb pulling out good bowls to keep saving one. scoring reflected this with Josh Hale going 11-2 , 15 – 5 , 18 10 and 20 – 12 up.
At this point with the noise level from the crowd rising the Paul Lamb comeback started, with some great bowls the 2s began to come, Josh fired a number of jacks off the green but Paul took 6 ends in a row to win the Wal Prescott Midweek Merit by 21 -20.
The bowling from all players was a credit to themselves and to the strength of this league.
