It was a tale of two rinks as Bill Daly and his team of Pe­ter Blake, Hardy Ren­nick and Alex Dal­gliesh won their rink 34 to 13 while Den­nis Bush found the go­ing a bit tougher los­ing 31 to 7. is

The signs are good for Di­vi­sion Four when they come up against Fin­ley at Fin­ley this week­end.

For Satur­day Di­vi­sion Two it was a day best for­got­ten as Co­bram handed out an ab­so­lute thrash­ing to the Ber­ri­gan team, 124 to 68 (18-0).

Rick Brad­bury’s rink came clos­est to a win but fell away hor­ri­bly in the last eight ends to turn a seven shot lead into a six- shot deficit to lose 27 to 21.

It was a sim­i­lar story on the other rinks – Graeme Cle­ments lost 27 to 18, Paul Glanvill lost 35 to 16 and Barry Hutchin­son lost 35 to 13.

Di­vi­sion Two have a week to lick their wounds be­fore turn­ing around to face Fin­ley at Fin­ley in a game that will see if Ber­ri­gan can stay in touch with the top four.

The se­lec­tors will be look­ing for bowlers to spend some more time on the prac­tice green if things are to im­prove.

The Fri­day team had a bye for the Vic­to­rian Open and will be fit and fir­ing for their trip to Nu­murkah Golf this week.

In pos­i­tive news for the fu­ture of the club, Ber­ri­gan sent four bowlers to Sey­mour on Sun­day to com­pete in the Cen­tral Goul­burn Mur­ray Re­gion Novice Sin­gles event.

All four bowlers did Ber­ri­gan proud but it was Lau­rie ‘Skinny’ Way who won his way into the fi­nal.

In the first round Way played team­mate Hardy Ren­nick, win­ning 23 to 6.

Graeme Parr de­feated Mark Brett from Sey­mour VRI 21 to 13 while Col Mc­Grath fought hard be­fore go­ing down 22 to 11.

In the sec­ond round Parr de­feated Chris Thomas from Alexan­dra 22 to 12 while Way pre­vailed over Gavin Parkin­son from Nu­murkah Golf 21 to 15.

That set up an al­lBer­ri­gan semi-fi­nal with Way too strong on the day for Parr tak­ing home the choco­lates 21 to 8.

Way will play in the fi­nal next Sun­day at Shep­par­ton East where he will face Shep­par­ton Park’s Richard Han­son.

The un­sea­son­able weather meant that Thurs­day twi­light bowls was can­celled last week but it will re­turn this week big­ger and bet­ter than ever.

Also on Thurs­day evening – the Merv Fen­nell Green will be cored and helpers are needed to re­move the cores and again on Fri­day morn­ing to spread sand.

The im­prove­ment in the qual­ity of the greens this sea­son has been no­ticed by vis­it­ing clubs and this is thanks to the tremen­dous re­sponse from the vol­un­teers.

Jer­ilderie Jer­ilderie hosted Fin­ley RS on Satur­day and gained 12 points, win­ning Col Bryce’s rink 30 to 12 which was enough for an over­all win.

Terry Chap­lain’s rink once again made a late run, al­most get­ting a win but went down 25 to 22.

Lucy Gur­ci­ullo’s rink bat­tled hard af­ter an early lead but just couldn’t hold on go­ing down 24 to 18.

Jer­ilderie will travel to Nu­murkah to fin­ish the first half of the sea­son.
