Diss Waveney Petanque Club's long-running knockout competition blank looked to be coming to an end on Monday, when Le Diss Sportif hit back from behind at Divison One side St Faiths Dolphins in the Tavern Tasty Meats Knockout Plate.

The Diss team trailed 2-0 after the triples but levelled in style with wins for Mick Clarke and Liz Rudling and Lindsay and Steven Penny. Captain Dave Smith and Jan Barsby went 7-0 up against former England international Ted Hamlin and his son Michael, but the home pair hit back to win 13-9 and earn victory.

In the Darby Rosettes Norfolk League last Thursday, Diss Vikings made it two away wins on the trot, gaining an impressive 3-2 success at Norwich Stars. Tony Bigley, Ken Roberts and Peter Atkins opened with a 13-8 win in the triples and Shirley and Robin Coe and Cyril Bromley held their nerve to win 13-12 to make it 2-0.

The Thorpe St Andrew-based team hit back to level, but victory was earned thanks to a pairs win for Atkins and Robin Coe.

At Brewers Green Lane, Diss, Duval lost 4-1 to Division Three title-chasing Freethorpe Falcons, with Joyce Goodey and Jackie and Chris Johnson the only winning partnership for the hosts.
