CITY Memorial Gold is celebrating a win against fellow Western District Bowls Division powerhouse Warrnambool Gold.
The reigning division one premier was convincing in the round two top-of-the-table-clash.
City Memorial Gold’s 92-61 win was on the back of two winning rinks.
Chris McMahon (39-16) and Barbara Bibby (33-18) led their teams to strong wins. Warrnambool Gold’s Brenda Hawker led her team to its sole win against Denise Hillier’s team, 27-20.
Bibby said it was an “exciting win” which gave the side confidence.
“Denise and Brenda had a close contest all day,” she said. I believe Denise played the stronger side of the three.
“Our other two rinks’ leads, Val Hassell and Maureen O’Brien, played well and that set the team up.” Bibby said wind was a factor and made bowling difficult.
“It was windy when we first started off and after lunch it dropped off and got warmer and then the wind picked up again and it was trickier on the last few ends,” she said.
Port Fairy Gold remains undefeated after knocking off Terang by one shot at home, 81-80.
It won two of the three rinks on offer. Port Fairy Gold’s Kay Miller said the result came down to the last shot of the day.
“It was a good game but it was quite windy here and the wind caused havoc,” she said.
City Memorial Green had the better of its battle with City Memorial Pink, winning by 16 shots.
Green won two of the three rinks on its way to a 77-61 win.
Timboon defeated Warrnambool Blue, 67-52.
