Diggers team bowls way to 2017 triples crown
LAWN BOWLS: The Diggers Memorial team of Dave Millar, Bill Cameron and John Lenon are the 2017 District Triples Champions.
The trio took out the title with a hard-fought 17-14 win over a gallant Gracemere team of Nigel Chippendale, Ron Wiggington and Nick Jones in the final played at Gracemere on Sunday.
Diggers led from the start but dropped a five on the 17th end to give Gracemere a sniff. However, some great bowls by the Diggers trio in the last few ends gave them a well-deserved victory.
To make the final, Diggers beat North Rockhampton while Gracemere accounted for Rockhampton.
In earlier round games, North Rockhampton defeated Victoria Park and Rockhampton were winners over Yeppoon.
