Two out of three ain’t bad for Sale

SALE won two of the three North Gippsland pennant bowls grand finals on Saturday.

At the Sale Bowls Club, Sale White had to withstand a strong comeback from Maffra to win the section one pennant.

Going into afternoon tea, Sale held an 11-shot advantage and appeared to be travelling well. Things changed as Maffra began to edge closer and memories were beginning to emerge of last year’s victory, but, Sale stuck to its guns and went on to win by three shots, 70-67.

In section two, Rosedale held sway all day to defeat Yarram by eight shots, 78-66.

Sale Blue and Maffra had an interesting game in section three with each team winning a rink, but Sale Blue won 59 shots to 46.
