The Grampians Bowls Division pennant season will continue with some intriguing matches scheduled for round two on Saturday.

In one of the most even rounds any of the games could go either way, Stawell Golf will be back at home for the clash against ladder leaders Lake Bolac.

The home team will go into the match as slight favourites in what is likely to be one of the closest matches of the round.

Stawell will host Ararat in another game that could end with a close result.

The home team will start the match as heavy favourites to get the victory.

Chalambar will play its first game at home and welcome the undefeated Aradale in what should be a great game.

Last season the Chalambar green was not available in the first weeks of the season but it is great to see the team able to utilise it early in the season.

In the last game Landsborough will be back at home and keen to get some points on the board against Ararat VRI with the visitors to have a comfortable win.

Ararat Blue and Lake Bolac Red are sitting on the ladder next to each other and a close result should be on the cards in the division two match-up.

Stawell Golf Blue will host the top team and cross town rivals Stawell Blue.

The visitors will go into the match as favourites but Stawell Golf Blue will be hoping their best is good enough to cause the upset on their home green

Aradale should get its second win for the year against Willaura to continue the strong early form on the bowling green.

Ararat Gold and Ararat VRI also sit near each other on the ladder just out side the top four and will clash in a round two blockbuster.

The winner will close the gap and could even push up into the top four while the loser will fall further behind the lead pack.

The two Lake Bolac teams will clash for more than just bragging rights, as a spot in the top four could be up for grabs for the winner of the White and Black battle on the green.

Stawell Golf Gold will host cross town rivals Stawell Gold in a match the Golf team will be expecting to win.

In the last game of the round two fixture, Ararat Green will play Chalambar in another game that should be closely contested and the result could go either way.

With temperatures of around 18 expected, it should be another pleasant day for bowlers on the green for the second round matches.
