Thrilling end for bowls season

WITH the last round of matches before the North Gippsland Bowls Division Saturday pennant finals this Saturday, there are still opportunities for clubs to advance.

In section one, Sale White and Maffra are safe in first and second positions, but, only one point separates Stratford, Yarram and Sale Blue in third, fourth and fifth positions.

Stratford will host Sale Blue, and Yarram will travel to Heyfield.

Everything will have to fall Maffra’s way for it to take fourth spot in section two off Stratford.

In section three, only four points separate Sale White, Yarram Gold and Maffra in the battle for third and fourth positions.

This weekend, Maffra will play at Stratford, Yarram Gold will be at home to Sale Blue, and Sale White will travel to Heyfield.

ON Saturday in section one, Maffra had an encouraging win over ladder leader Sale White heading into the finals.

Yarram was too strong for Sale Golf, Stratford likewise against Rosedale, and Sale Blue defeated Heyfield.

In section two, Sale White was too good for Maffra, Yarram defeated Sale Golf, Stratford outmuscled Wurruk and Heyfield defeated Sale Blue.

Yarram Green toppled Maffra in section three, Sale White was four shots better than Stratford, Yarram Gold won by a shot over Rosedale and Sale Blue defeated Heyfield.
