Higgins wins NGBD singles

THE North Gippsland Bowls Division finals of the men’s singles was played at Sale on Sunday.

In the semi-finals, Matt Higgins (Sale) was too good for Yarram’s Bruce Penney, winning 25-11.

It was a different story in other semi-final, with Dennis Young (Stratford) getting off to a strong start and holding a convincing lead on Heyfield’s Brendan Fleming. Fleming found his range and managed to draw level at 23-23 before closing out the game to win 25-23.

The final was a one-sided affair, with Higgins too strong, winning 25-6 and earning himself a spot in the Gippsland region final at Stratford in February.
