City Memorial clinches clean sweep over rival Warrnambool

Port Fairy Gold’s Linda Creek, who had the biggest win against Timboon Gold, has her bowl.CROSS-TOWN bragging rights are with City Memorial bowlers after their Tuesday pennant clean sweep against Warrnambool yesterday.

The Western District Bowls Division (WDBD) traditional rivals went head-to-head in two top-grade fixtures with City emerging victorious in both.

City Gold knocked off previously-unbeaten Warrnambool Gold 84-69 at Cramer Street to keep in touch with the top four.

Denise Hillier defeated Bev Hayes 28-19 and Catherine Hoy outlasted Brenda Hawker 26-17, while Dorothy Gleeson went down to Kellie Bowles 33-30.

The result meant City Green could take top spot provided it beat Warrnambool Blue, which it did in a thriller 68-66 at Timor Street.

Karina Ellery and Helen Kelly enjoyed one-shot victories on their rinks. Ellery edged out Maree Lynch 18-17 and Kelly beat Shirley Kosch 26-25.

The other rink was even tighter with Trina Dyer and Helen Lock playing a 24-all draw.

“We were up by 15 overall at dinner time and Warrnambool came back out and they really pulled that lead back,” Ellery said. “They were coming back at us, coming back at us. They never got in front overall but it was close.

“The conditions got more difficult this afternoon, a bit more wind. It was a really hard-fought win.”

Ellery said City Green — traditionally the second-ranked side in the club — was not getting ahead of itself despite being on top of the ladder.

“We’re certainly not singing from the rafters. We’ll keep our heads down and take it week by week,” she said.

In other matches, Terang endured some nervous moments en route to a 63-57 win against Lawn Tennis at Terang.

Lawn Tennis held a narrow lead late in the match before Carol Cardwell’s rink picked up seven shots on its second-last end to turn the tables.

Cardwell finished 25-17 up against Marian Treweek and Gwen Lock beat Sandra Suridge 23-19. But Margaret Sumner lost 21-15 to Marj Fisher.

Terang third Jenny Meade said winless Lawn Tennis could consider itself unlucky not to emerge with more points from the match.

“A few times during the game we were down. Lawn Tennis, they’re on the bottom but they played really well. They don’t warrant being where they are,” she said.

Port Fairy Gold held onto third spot with a 79-61 win against Timboon Gold at Port Fairy.

Linda Creek enjoyed the biggest win, 31-14 against Andrea Swayn. Gill Phillips beat Noelene Richards 27-22 but Patti Murray lost to Corrie Dixon 25-21.
