BOGNOR B came up agonisingly short from registering succesive wins in the West Sussex Bowls League.
Despite having home advantage, the Waterloo Square side fell to a 76-68 defeat to Witterings with the visitors taking home seven of the ten points.
They followed that up with a 86 to 72 win over Maltravers. The eight points taken from the match leaves the club in mid-table.
Elsewhere, division one Bognor A won only one of four rinks in a 89-71 defeat at still-unbeaten Worthing Pavilion A.
The A team return to action tomorrow with top-of-the-table Worthing visiting Waterloo Square (2pm).
It’s been a quiet week for Chichester BC with neither side being in league action this week.
Both teams have played just four times this term, winning one which sees them towards the bottom of their respective leagues.
The B side, who lost to Goring Manor on June 6 last time out, return to action on Monday at home to Petworth in division three.
Fellow division three side Middleton found their stride when Aldingbourne visited.
The sports ground side won three out of the four rinks in what was a convincing 119-50 victory.
That was only the second win out of six this term but takes Middleton in to mid-table.
Elsewhere, Selsey’s Little Spain BC suffered a resounding defeat when they went down 38-61, losing on all three rinks, to a strong Southbourne team in this annual home friendly played in a good spirit.
It was a different type of match two days later when 30 players on five rinks, playing 18 ends and bowling a total of 1,620 woods, were separated by only one shot at the end – Fishbourne winning at Little Spain 81-80 in a fine sporting match.
Saturday sees the annual Captain’s Day event at Liitle Spain when, after an afternoon of bowling, the players will sit down to a buffet meal provided by the members. Much fun is sure to be had.
