Mooroopna Golf 2 has stormed into the top three of the midweek pennant division four table after securing a huge victory yesterday.
The Golfers jumped from sixth to their new position after thumping East Shepparton 16-111 to 0-51.
Susan Smith’s rink broke through the 40-shot barrier to claim a 41-18 win, while Betty Watson (37-12) and Karen Dean (33-21) also had huge triumphs.
Merrigum remained undefeated to start the Goulburn Valley Bowls Division’s new season, winning its fourth match when it defeated Euroa 15-82 to 1-51, while Mooroopna Golf 3 found success against Hill Top 14-80 to 2-57.
●Kyabram and Shepparton Park have opened up a gap at the top of division one’s ladder after both engineered clean sweeps in round five.
The Parkers got a hold of Mooroopna Golf on their home green, with Marika Armstrong (34-12), Bev Cahill (30-16) and Di Hands (23-19) all leading their rinks to victory in the 16-87 to 0-47 result.
Kyabram put in a similarly strong performance against Rushworth to win 16-89 to 0-54, while Hill Top was also among the winners’ list with a 14-87 to 2-46 triumph over Seymour.
●Kyabram holds sway at the top of the division two leaderboard as well after it snuck past Stanhope yesterday.
Despite claiming all 16 points on offer, Kyabram’s biggest rink win was only nine shots in the 74-61 result.
A big win of its own has Euroa within touching distance of the front-runner after it defeated Hill Top 16-73 to 0-52, while Avenel and Mooroopna also tasted success with wins over Shepparton Golf and Tatura respectively.
●Shepparton RSL came agonisingly close to securing its first victory of the division three season against East Shepparton, but fell at the final hurdle.
Joyce Johnson (23-14) and Sharon Newby (27-20) led their rinks to strong wins for the Rissoles, but a dominant performance from East’s Josephine Michielin (37-19) was enough for the home side to take the 12-71 to 4-69 triumph.
Other winners in the round included Seymour and Violet Town.
●Dookie made it five wins from five attempts in division five with a 32-shot drubbing of Shepparton Golf.
The ladder-leader doubled Golf’s score in the 14-64 to 0-32 win, with Margaret Feldtmann (35-15) and Glenda Exton (29-17) dominating as skippers.
Colbinabbin, Mooroopna and Euroa also had reason to celebrate after engineering wins.
