The Stonehaven Indoor Bowling Club recently hosted the sixth annual Junior Triples Competition sponsored by the Stonehaven and District Lions Club.
Seven clubs entered a total of 11 teams who competed in two groups, with the semi-finals being played between the winners of one group and the runners-up of the other group.
The clubs entering teams were Stonehaven, Aberdeen, Arbroath, Buchan, Dundee, Forfar and Grampian.
Grampian B were top of Group One, with Forfar A as runners-up. Grampian C were top of Group Two, with Grampian A as runners-up. In the semi-finals Grampian A beat Grampian B and Forfar A beat Grampian C to prevent an all-Grampian final.
The Grampian A team, consisting of Ryan MacKinnon, Kieran Craigen and skip James McDougall, and the Forfar A team, consisting of Ethan Alexander, Shane Cunningham and skip Angus Redford, were even on four shots each after the normal six ends.
The game therefore had to go into a sudden-death final end. This was extremely close and required the Umpire, Alan Beattie, to measure to determine the winner. After a tense moment or two Forfar A were declared the winners.
