The new Stowmarket Bowls League started last night.
Haughley entertained their local rivals Old Newton (2007) in Division Two.
On an increasingly cold evening, Haughley came out on top by winning 6-1 and by 90 shots to 62 overall.
The best winning rink of Janet Gill, Tas Ormes and Jamie Gill beat their opponents by 41 shots to 11.
Next up is Ixworth away on May 2.
