The final of the State Triples Championship was an all Harbord event - the finalists were both Harbord teams and the match was played at Harbord Bowling Club in brilliant sunshine after being washed out yesterday.

The Championship was won by Peter Crossingham, Phil Enever and Ray Robinson who defeated Andy Dessaix, Richard Monin and Errol Millsteed 24 shots to 17 in a closely fought match. Both teams had earlier progressed to be final: Ray's team defeating Mosman's Leo Vesey, Peter Attrill and Mike Cleaver 22-16 and Errol's team defeating Mona Vale's Adam Glew, Wayne Fletcher and Kevin Watson 25 shots to 18.

The winners will now progress to represent the Zone at the State finals to be played at Cabramatta Bowling Club during the week commencing 11th October.
