And Hill Top wins

The Tatura Guardian - - Sport -

Hill Top leapfrogged East Shep­par­ton into the top half of the Goul­burn Val­ley Bowls Di­vi­sion ta­ble af­ter over­com­ing Daniel Nichols’ side 16-95 to 2-80.

The win gave the Hill­bil­lies a five-point ad­van­tage on the lad­der, nar­rowly se­cur­ing their po­si­tion as the duo fights it out.

On Satur­day Hill Top was clearly the su­pe­rior side and Nichols was the only East skip to pre­vail as he fin­ished one shot ahead of Jock Hicks.

Mur­ray Stark and his team of Den­nis McHarry (third), Gary Mans­field (sec­ond) and John Flana­gan (lead) were sen­sa­tional in knock­ing off East’s Ash­ley Lawlor 24-18.

Garry Rus­sell and Al­lan Hue­ston fought out an en­ter­tain­ing bat­tle with Rus­sell nar­rowly pre­vail­ing by two shots, while Hill Top’s Jeff Mc­Naughton se­cured the big­gest win of the day.

He was able to see off Ge­off Franze by eight shots to help ce­ment the win and add valu­able shot dif­fer­ence to the over­all tally.

In di­vi­sion two Tatura kept Mooroopna Golf win­less thanks to John Attwood’s spec­tac­u­lar form.

Joined by Ni­co­las Tziros, Dorothy Best and Robert Bordett, Attwood’s rink gath­ered 41 shots to win by a mar­gin of 22 against Graeme Bar­ber.

Peter Le Sueur, Nick Boyd and Bren­don Boyd all pitched in for the 18-123 to 0-74 tri­umph.

In di­vi­sion three, Hill Top en­sured it would be in the top four dur­ing the Christ­mas break af­ter an away win against East Shep­par­ton.

The Hill­bil­lies pre­vailed 13-100 to 5-85 with Ken Parks the only Hill Top skip to win his rink.

But Parks won in a big way against Kevin Cox, while team mate Jeff Trevaskis and East’s David Downs drew.

Euroa was too good for Hill Top in di­vi­sion four de­spite Hill­billy Ray Flett putting in a strong ef­fort against Brian Dif­fey.

Hill Top put in a fine per­for­mance at East Shep­par­ton to take out its di­vi­sion six en­counter 14-82 to 2-52 while Tatura’s short trip to Mooroopna Golf also proved fruit­ful with a 22-shot win.

In di­vi­sion seven Hill Top went down to Kyabram, un­able to win a rink in the 20-shot loss.
