ALL eyes were on West Kilbride BC as the league champions battled it out with pretenders to the throne, Ardrossan BC.

And the game did not disappoint as the action went down to the very last bowl to decide the destination of the the league title.

With all but one game finished, West Kilbride were in the lead by a solitary shot, 70-69, with one end to be completed.

As Ardrossan skip Steven Burns went to play his last bowl, he knew he had to do something special and he managed just that, turning the shot bowl and jack to lie three, enough for an Ardrossan win and enough to land the league title.

The last bowl to decide the league's fate was with West Kilbride's Jack Montgomerie who had to ensure his side lost no more than one. The skip turned in the bowl of dad and teammate, Hugh, which in turn moved the jack and it sat beside another West Kilbride bowl to snatch the title and secure four-in-a-row for the home side.

Kilwinning failed to overcome Saltcoats at home in one of the other matches on Friday night meaning they finished in third spot with Ardrossan ahead in second place.

Ardeer knew what they had to do to ensure a top four place, that was to win their remaining game and then win their game in hand against Kilbirnie but Fairlie had other ideas and this meant that Largs Halkshill claim the final spot in the end of season Challenge Cup.

Dalry and Glengarnock were the other victors on Friday, securing a 4-0 win over bottom placed side Largs by 90 shots to 42.

Teams will now battle it out over the next month for the newly incorporated Davide Scaife Memorial Cup, named in memory of the Kilwinning BC member and North Ayrshire bowling stalwart who passed away suddenly earlier this year.
