A Team Claim NIPGL Senior Cup thumbnailBallymena A team celebrate after winning the NIPGL Senior Cup. GB35Ballymena A Bowls

BALLYMENA 'A' won the NIPGL Senior Cup last Thursday night, beating Mossley 'A' 84-62 at Old Bleach.
The Braid team were favourites as they had beaten the Mossley men twice in the league.
The Ballymena men were quickly out of the blocks and with only 7 ends played they lead by 30 shots and it looked as though they would romp home to an easy victory however the Mossley men had other ideas.
Over the next 7-8 ends they had much the better of the play and during that time they were able to reduce the deficit to just 8 shots.
But that was as good as it got for the Newtownabbey team as the Braid men found their rhythm again to finish ahead on all 4 rinks and claim victory by a margin of 22 shots.
On rink 2 David Torrington, Graham Wilson, Steven Falls and Nigel Robinson were in great form against E Crawford.
The Mossley men picked up 2 shots on the first end but the Ballymena rink stamped their authority on the game when they won the next 5 ends to lead by 7 shots to 2.
