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.
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.
