Two in a row for Heyfield

HEYFIELD made it two North Gippsland men’s section one bowls pennant wins in a row when it defeated Sale White in Saturday’s grand final at Maffra.

The grand finals were scheduled for Sale but the wet weather forced them to be transferred to the synthetic greens at Maffra.

With wet conditions all afternoon, the synthetic green was running fast and Heyfield was first to adjust to the conditions and jumped away to a 34-shot lead mid-way through the contest.

Sale lifted in the latter part of the game to make a challenge, but the post was too near, and Heyfield held on to win by five shots, 78-73.

THE section two final between Yarram and Sale White was another good game, with Yarram getting the break and holding on to win 73-61.

SECTION three was contested between the two Sale teams, White and Blue, with White the far better side, winning 60-37.
