DATCHWORTH BC's Gold team were beaten 43-29 by Shire Park Green in the Welwyn Hatfield Bowls League Division Two.

Things didn't begin well for the village side at home.

Jim Whittle, Ros Wintle and skip David Wright were 13-5 down after dropping a six on the fifth end.

However, they did fight back and levelled things at 14-14 after 12 ends.

Things then went against them. Their earlier good work amounted to nothing as they lost all but one of the closing six ends.

The side dropped 16 shots in the process to lose 30-15.

David Thompson, Chas Townley and skip Joan James had a much closer game.

They won the first two ends to take an early lead and held on to that until they were caught on the 17th end at 13 all.

But they then won the last end to take victory 14-13.
