Bowls Algarve June 16 – SUMMER LEAGUE

A round of matches at Alvor resulted in the tightest finish we have ever had in the Summer league, with six teams still with a chance of winning the title, all within three points of each other.

The biggest movers this week were the Alvor Canaries, who picked up the full ten points in beating Amendoeira Nuts by 42-21 and improved their position to within a point of the Alvor Larks, the new league leaders.

Alvor Kestrels lost narrowly to the Alvor Doves by 32-26. Doves picked up six points and Kestrels took the other four, both teams now within two points of the top.

The two PDF sides clashed and the Pacemakers came out winners over the Pilgrims by 43-28 and went away with eight points to two.

Pilgrims however remain within three points of the leadership. Finally, Alvor Larks went top of the table with a very good 34-26 win over the Alvor Eagles. Larks earning seven points to the three for the Eagles.

So as we go into the final round on Thursday, June 23 at Alvor, Larks have 35 points ahead of the Eagles on shot difference.

Canaries leap up to third with 34, equal on points with the Kestrels but just ahead on shot difference. Doves now have 33 points in fifth and Pilgrims are sixth on 32 points.

Pacemakers now have 24 and Nuts remain on

13 points.

That means that six teams have a good chance of lifting the 2011 Summer League title and all depends on the important round of matches at Alvor next week.
