On a miserably cold Wednesday the teams of Peter Watts, Daryl Murphy and Nev Thurtell played John Crowe, Col Good and John Dymock for the title.
Peter’s team were the reigning premiers from 2016.
In a see-sawing battle over 21 ends John’s team eventually won 23-15.
The scores were very even at the 10th end with John in front 8-7.
His team then had a run over 3 ends putting on 7 shots to lead 15 –7.
A further 6 on the 16 end gave John a 21-9 lead.
Peter came back with 6 shots over the last 5 ends but all too late.
The champions were disposed off and John Crowe’s team are 2017 Triples Champions.
At last Thursday’s social 3-bowl Triples John Cooper and John Dymock ran out winners on 24 points followed by Brian Gibson on 22 and a tie for third between Neil Turner and Tony Deverson on 21.
Social as usual 12.30pm Thursday.
