HUNTINGDON Indoor Bowls Club ladies enjoyed a comfortable victory over Melton Mowbray IBC in the Vivienne Trophy.

A 94-60 shots win was proof that the Huntingdon ladies, captained by Joan Hatton, weren't the ones bowling pies.

Pride of place went to Joan Rogers' rink at home as the opposition melted away to a 32-8 defeat, while Jenny Diamond's rink played a gem of a game to win 23-17.

At Melton, Margaret Hodgkin's rink suffered a narrow two-shot loss, going down 17-19, but Glynis Cousins led her rink to an outstanding 22-16 win.
