Rousing victory for Deni RSL

-

The Deniliquin RSL Club has tasted premiershi­p success, after a rousing victory in the Campaspe Valley Bowls Associatio­n’s weekend pennant on Saturday.

The Division 4 side had a score of 48 by the end of the day, with Echuca White only managing 31.

It was an outstandin­g victory for RSL on the Rochester greens.

John Wilson, Archie Webster, Graeme Gordon, and Sandra Hill had a dominant rink victory.

They amassed 31 shots, winning on 14 ends while allowing their opponents only 13 shots overall.

Scores were 4-all after five ends, but from that point on RSL exerted their authority with some big scoring ends.

They scored a five, two fours and a three to take complete control.

All players were in great touch with solid contributi­ons from all.

Jim Jennings and his team of Lindsay Dalzell, Peter Liefting and Neville Austin went down by a single shot on their rink.

Scores were tight all day, with RSL leading 9-7 after 10 ends and 16-14 after 19.

Echuca then grabbed a four on the penultimat­e ends to lead 18-16, with RSL taking a single on the last end. Echuca White 18 defeated Deni RSL 17. It was a great match - very appropriat­e for a grand final, with nothing between both teams all day with all players evenly matched.
