You can't fault City Memorial bowler Donald Price, or his team City White's form, right now.
Competition is fierce in division two weekend pennant, though City continued its flawless form against third-ranked Warrnambool Red on Saturday.
Heading into the match, Price remained the top skip in the competition, his shot percentage sitting at 268.66 from six games.
City Memorial's most recent men's singles champion, Price this year ticked off a long-held dream of adding his name to the club's honour board alongside his father, Frank.
"Dad played here for 40 years and won six club championships," Price said.
"When I started playing 11 or 12 years ago, my goal was to get on that board with him.
"I did it last season which was pretty good but I don't think I'll get on it six times like he did."
With an early interest in football and cricket, it wasn't until Price was older that his father's influence paid off.
"Dad's saying was; 'come up here and I'll make a champion out of you', but I never did," Price said.
"I later started playing in the corporate cup, liked it and was then asked to play pennant so it went from there."
Back-to-back club singles championships aren't on the cards for Price after he was knocked out first round this year. He said with a laugh: "I've come from the top of the mountain to the bottom in a year".
Turning his attention to pennant, Price's aim is to reach the final weekend in March.
"We lost to Dunkeld in the grand final last season (by nine), so the goal is to get back to that," he said.
"Dunkeld have gone up to the top division and are third, so we got beaten by a pretty good side."
An all-round bowler, Price is also back skippering after playing third last season.
"Tim Jackway, who is third to me, he was skipper last year and wanted a bit of a change. It's worked well," he said.
Personnel on Price's rink remains unchanged, which has no doubt helped the foursome pick up where they left off.
"I say it's like any football or netball team, you've got to be compatible with the guys you're playing with," Price said.
"Our rink, we all get on, have a bit of fun which carries over into the way we're going."
In division one results, Mortlake Blue scored a 60-55 shot win over Warrnambool Gold, City Red defeated Warrnambool Blue, 66-51 and Dunkeld outplayed Timboon Gold, 74-49.
City Gold secured a 74-34 victory over Port Fairy Red as Koroit Blue enjoyed a 63-53 win over Terang Green.
