Hill Top

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Jeanette Over­all and Louise Hicks for their con­vinc­ing win in the pairs fi­nal against Lyn Ni­chol­son and Di Downie.

Last week’s re­sults saw di­vi­sion one de­feat Mooroopna Golf, which is well above the Top­pers in the four.

Jeanette Over­all had a con­vinc­ing win against Faye Wheel­house 33-20. The other two rinks were nar­rowly de­feated with Di Downie go­ing down to Jeanette Do­herty 21-22 and Maria Warner los­ing to Elsie Gale 22-24 in a great game to watch.

Di­vi­sion two trav­elled across town to Tatura where Hill Top had a two-shot win. J. An­drus de­feated Sue Ni­hill 24-18; Dot Best drew with Glenda Smith 21-all; and Robyn Downs had a great win against Freda Cle­ment 30-17.

Di­vi­sion four did not have a good day, los­ing to Euroa by 16 shots. Lenore Tay­lor drew with M. Goode 21-all, Chris Pop­ple went down by four shots to M. Steen 18-22, and Betty Durston had a bad day, los­ing 28-29.

Tues­day sees Hill Top host­ing Rush­worth and hope­fully a win will come our way. Di­vi­sion two trav­els to Stan­hope in what could be a close game and di­vi­sion four has the bye.

On Thurs­day Hill Top hosts the 60s and over.

Mid-week

A mid-week pen­nant derby did not dis­ap­point yes­ter­day when Tatura took on Hill Top in di­vi­sion two.

The Goul­burn Val­ley Bowls Di­vi­sion clash came right down to the wire as both teams claimed a one-rink vic­tory each and split the other, but a 30-17 win to Hill­bil­lies’ Robyn Downs (skip), Noel Mulc­ahy (third), Alan Cross (sec­ond) and Michael An­der­son (lead) paved the way for vic­tory.

Tatura quar­tet Joyce An­drus (skip), Terry Gale (third), Frances Brit­ten (sec­ond) and Gra­ham An­drus (lead) en­sured the home team would have some­thing to crow about with a 24-18 win, but with the bat­tle between team­mate Dot Best and Hill Top’s Glenda Smith fin­ish­ing at 21-all, it was not enough for over­all suc­cess.

The fi­nal score had Hill Top tak­ing a 13-69 to 3-62 tri­umph.

Other re­sults in the di­vi­sion had Avenel de­feat­ing Euroa 16-77 to 0-66, Mooroopna hav­ing the wood over Kyabram 14-85 to 2-58 and Shep­par­ton Golf sneak­ing home over Stan­hope, 12-63 to 4-61.

Shep­par­ton Park ce­mented its spot at the top of the di­vi­sion one ta­ble with a 14-72 to 2-62 win against Kyabram.

Vic­to­rian Open women’s pairs he­roes Bev Cahill and Marg Smyth showed no signs of slow­ing down af­ter their big week, com­bin­ing once more in a rink with Brenda Brodie and Marg Thorne for a 26-18 vic­tory.

Di Hands (25-19) also tasted suc­cess for the home side, while Bev­er­ley But­ton’s 25-21 win was Kyabram’s only one for the match.

Other re­sults in­cluded Sey­mour dom­i­nat­ing Shep­par­ton Park Two 16-81 to 0-47, Hill Top get­ting the bet­ter of Moor- oopna Golf 12-76 to 4-66 and Shep­par­ton Golf out­class­ing Rush­worth.

Di­vi­sion three ac­tion was close for much of the round, but Shep­par­ton RSL man­aged a huge win against Rush­worth to break the trend.

The Ris­soles claimed ev­ery rink in the 16-84 to 0-42 tri­umph — just their sec­ond of the sea­son.

East Shep­par­ton, Murchi­son and Violet Town also tasted vic­tory.

In di­vi­sion four, Mooroopna Golf Two, Shep­par­ton Park and Euroa all took home over­all hon­ours, while East Shep­par­ton had the bye.

Ev­ery team in the sec­tion has played six matches, and the lad­der is look­ing ex­tremely tight.

Golf Two sits on top of the ta­ble with 66 points, fol­lowed by the Park­ers on 65 and Mer­rigum on 64.

Mean­while, Dookie, Mooroopna, Sey­mour, Euroa and Avenel all had rea­son to cel­e­brate in di­vi­sion five.
