NORTH Gippsland Bowls Division began the 2019-20 season with the ladies 60 and over singles, held at Heyfield Bowling club on Thursday and Friday.
After four rounds, West Sale's Gail McKenzie defeated Sale's Jan Morton, making it three wins in a row.
McKenzie will play for the Gippsland region title in February.
Pennant begins this week, and with a new format for midweek, it should be an interesting season and wide open.
Men can now play in the top section, and the game has been reduced to 21 ends.
West Sale will be looking for back to back premierships in section one Saturday, and on paper, look the team to beat.
