Bowls: West Lothian pair fall at semi-final stage

Have your say

West Lothian IBC partnership Calum Logan and Neil Speirs’ bid to win the Scottish 2Bowl Pairs title ended in early disappointment at Paisley.

The duo had taken a 5-3 lead over Lanarkshire challengers Russell Hinson and Roddy McCready in the opening set of their semi-final but were stunned by a 2, 1 finish which gave their opponents a 6-5 win.

Logan and Speirs dropped an expensive three shots on the first end of the second set then remained on the back foot as they suffered a 7-2 loss that killed off their title challenge.

In the final, Lanarkshire endured a two-sets-to-one defeat (8-2, 7-8, 7-2) at the hands of Galleon (Kilmarnock) challengers Drew Boyd and John McCabe Jnr.
