DATCHWORTH bowlers suffered a hat-trick of East Herts Bowls League defeats last week.
The club's Division One Blue team went down 40-27 away to Much Hadham Eagles.
That defeat was followed by a 45-26 reverse against nearby Tewin club Shire Park.
Datchworth Gold also lost in Division Three 39-32 to Stevenage Reds.
The triple of Bill Thorne, Mike Mahoney and skip Les Parsley shared the ends nine apiece against the Eagles but lost 19-15.
Peter Large, Steve Arnold and skip Peter Hills were beaten 21-12.
At Stevenage, Datchworth's Gold team suffered a similar fate.
The triple of Jim Whittle, Tom Power and skip David Wright dropped 13 shots between the 13th and 17th ends, to go from being 16-7 up to 20-16.
They eventually lost 17-20.
Bob Waller, Phill Fox and skip Steve Chamberlain also went down 19-15.
The Blue team's second match of the week ended in similar fashion to the first, as they were beaten 45-26 away to Shire Park.
The triple of Paul Wright, Mike Mahoney and skip Peter Hills won the same amount of ends as their home team opponents, but dropped a five on the third end and never got them back, losing by five shots 18-13.
It was definitely a game of two halves for the Datchworth triple of Steve Arnold, Chas Townley and Basil Briars.
After nine ends they were 20-2 down, but somehow found their line and length to win the second half 11-7, losing the game 27-13.
