THE EMPHATIC bowlers of Rolls-Royce Leisure collected four impressive wins — three by way of whitewash margins — in a memorable week of action.

The heftiest reverse was handed out to Greasley in Division One of the Notts Federation Mixed 3x3 League as the Rollers ran out 6-0 (95 shots to 21) winners.

Janet Adams, Mark Foulds and Dave Adams scored on 14 of the 18 ends to win 35-4. Also bagging 35 shots were Lily Bennington, Stuart Newton and Bert Wright, who took two fives and one four and conceded just seven shots. Ann Taylor, Adam Wright and Alan Harvey won 25-10.

ANOTHER clean sweep was recorded in Division Two of the Notts EBA Mixed League as Daybrook went down 7-0 (78-53).

Pauline Harvey, John Etches and Bert Wright came through 20-11, while Rose Hobbs, Keith Powell and Stuart Newton scored a five on the first end in a 21-11 success.

Lily Bennington, Mark Foulds and Alan Parker took a five en route to a 21-16 victory, while Ann Taylor, Adam Wright and Alan Harvey survived dropping four shots on the last two ends to win 16-15.

IN THE top flight of the Notts EBA Open 3x4 League, Rolls continued their hot streak with a 6-0 (57-38) victory over Attenborough.

The team of Janet Adams, John Etches, Bert Wright and Dave Adams landed a five and two fours to break their dogged opponents in a 22-11 success.

Geoff Gunn, Alan Harvey, Stuart Newton and Alan Parker came back from 12-2 down and scored 19 shots on the last ten ends to win 21-15, while John Walker, Mark Foulds, Roy Walker and Dave Breedon won a tight affair 14-12.

A DRAW on one of the rinks in a clash with Lowdham in Division One of the Notts Federation Midweek Mixed League was the only thing blocking Rolls from a perfect week.

But they still won 6.5-1.5 (87-46) with the trio of Rose Hobbs, Keith Powell and Alan Parker scoring on 13 of the 18 ends to win 23-6.

Maureen Gunn, John Walker and Geoff Gunn scored a seven on the final end to rubberstamp a 26-12 success, Pauline Harvey, John Etches and Alan Harvey raced into an 18-2 lead before finally running out 22-12 victors, and Janet Adams, Mark Foulds and Dave Adams recovered from an 11-3 deficit to snatch a 16-16 draw.
