Round three of Bowls3Five was held on Wednesday night at the Hikurangi greens.
Kamo Keas had another win and continue to lead the competition, although the top two teams in each section will qualify for the playoffs. The winners of this event will continue in the competition at a Regional and National level and could end up playing in the Sky TV bowls3five league.
The next round will be played at Kensington greens on January 19.
