Match Report
This year's Final was hosted by Mijas Bowls Club on a grey and overcast afternoon. Played over 6 rinks - 2 Pairs, 2 Triples and 2 Fours (Rinks) the overall shots scored would decide the Winners.
In an even Match, Lauro went on to be comfortable winners in both Pairs matches, while Santa Maria took the honours in both closely fought Triples. It was the Fours which proved to be the decisive disciplines, with one game drawn and Santa Maria easily winning the other to take a narrow 110-103 win over all.
