Newtonhill & Stoney #2 had a nerve jangle ending where Newtonhill were 1 shot behind in the match but was lying 2 & match.
However old stalwart Dod Buchan produced another telling last bowl to ensure Stoney #2 gained the 2 points.
The top was playing the bottom but after Stoney #1 managed to get a full house of 8 shots in the second end meant they went on to secure a comfortable victory. Other winners were Laurencekirk, Drumlithie & St.Cyrus. Portlethen & Fettercairn had the 2nd peeled game of the campaign.
Week 8 sees the top 4 teams in action against another top 4 team so things could dramatically change.
Stonehaven Bowling Update - Stonehaven Seniors went into the North of Scotland cup semi-final 22 shots down from the away leg in Aberdeen but a great fight back from the old timers saw them rack up a great 83-49 victory. All the best to them in the final against a strong Buchan team (2nd & 9th of March). Spectators are more that welcome.
