Ladder leaders build on form in pennant bowls

The win places Lake Bolac in a solid position at this stage of the year.

Ararat VRI has been one of the big improvers this year and hosted Stawell Golf on their green on Saturday.

All three matches were one sided, with Brian Adamson seeming to do enough to give the visitors a chance of a win up by 25 shots. In-form VRI skippers Clayton Holcombe and Shane Briggs managed to erase the deficit and produce a seven shot win.

The match came down to the last end with Landsborough up by one shot with one end to play.

Ararat managed to win the end with a five and secure the win for the day.

Stawell welcomed Chalambar and got off to an early lead at the lunch break with Andrew Cray's rink up by 20-4 and the other rinks fairly even.

After the break and a substitution due to illness, Dennis Pickford moved up to a third in the Chalambar side.

Pickford produced an outstanding second half to the game.

Stawell substitute Geoff Dunn a was handy replacement to make up the four players, but Chalambar managed to get the win by six shots with a great game from Grant Seeary’s rink.


Lake Bolac White failed to get the win at home against Aradale with Jake Strafehl in great touch with a 24 shot win getting the points for the visitors.

Ararat Gold finally got their team going in the right direction with a great win over Ararat Green winning both rinks well.

Lake Bolac Black played the top of the ladder Stawell Blue.

With both teams one win a piece at the end of play, the home team managed a three shot win.

Stawell Gold kept their fourth position on the ladder by winning both rinks over the visiting Stawell Golf Blue team.
