Seniors still in with a shout

Borders senior bowlers went on the road last week for a must-win group match against West Lothian in the Matt Purdie competition.

A healthy lead was maintained for much of the game, however, near the end, West Lothian began to fight back. The Borderers were in danger of being caught, but a count of five on one rink and determined efforts elsewhere enabled them to emerge with the desired victory.

They now have to win their remaining two home matches by as many shots as possible as it is likely that the section winner will be determined on shot difference.
