Close bowls pennant

THE closeness of North Gippsland section one Saturday bowls competition is improving each week as the scores show another change at the top of the ladder.

This week Maffra takes over top spot, three points ahead of Sale Blue in second place.

Yarram has dropped to third with the revitalised Heyfield Blue up into fourth with only percentage separating them.

Sale White is only a point out of the top four with Sale Golf another point back.

On Saturday, there will be two top four clashes with Maffra taking on Sale Blue at Sale and Heyfield Blue playing at Yarram.

Section two is just as exciting with three games being decided by two shots or less last weekend.
