Draw for Ballarat, Midlands

October 9 2016 - 7:30pm

Ballarat Bowling Club and Midlands Golf and Bowling Club fought out a draw to open their Ballarat Bowls division one 2016-17 season. Midlands got off to a strong start, winning the first rink 31 shots to 15 followed by two very close rinks which had Ballarat requiring a fightback in the dying stages. It trailed by seven shots with three ends remaining but managed to rein in the deficit to draw level at 85 apiece at the close of play.
