Competition intensifies at National Bowls League
The TransNamib women’s bowling team stands a great chance of clinching the Namibian National Bowls League championship as they continue to underline their championship ambitions.
The team currently sits comfortably on 15 points at the top of the log and have a better chance of scooping this year’s championship unlike their male counterparts who lost two matches which enabled their rivals to catch up.
Last week the TransNamib women’s team was on a high again, opening the match-day with a solid 20:9 win against Rossmund Bowling Club (RBC). The next day they were made to work harder by Namib Park Bowling Club (NPBC), but eventually won the game, registering a 16:15 victory.
There is, however, a fierce race building up behind the women log-leaders as all the other clubs are still battling it out for second honours.
Meanwhile the TransNamib men’s team failed to increase their lead on top of the league and dropped points when they suffered a 22:17 loss to Rossmund Club in their opening game and then drawing 17:17 in their second game against Namib Park last week. Their close rivals Eros Bowling Club (EBC) and Namib Park Club gained valuable points intensifying the race for top honours in the men’s division which will be decided on the last day come July.
In the mixed division there is currently serious competition between TransNamib and Rossmund, both with 14 points, while the Eros players are also still in contention having 12 points to their name. TransNamib Bowling Club and Rossmund Bowling Club won one game apiece last weekend, while Eros Bowling Club crashed Tsumeb Bowling Club to a 19:13 defeat in their only game of the day.
