Bowls | First Division retain top spot despite narrow loss
Well what a weekend for bowls or any sport for that matter, 40 to 50 k winds with intermittent rain made it a very challenging day.

First division travelled to Horsham to play on the grass greens at Coughlin Park, the green was very slow running at about 11 seconds and with wind and rain thrown in it was very difficult. Despite winning two of three rinks overall, Dimboola went down by 13 shots 64 to 77.

The team of Peter O’Loughlin, Judith Albrecht, Merv Roberts and Alex Orcsik had a good 5 shot victory winning 27 to 22, Alan Krahe, Wayne Albrecht, Ron Gaulke and Josh Cook had a narrow hard fought win 22 to 21 and the team of Geoff Gazelle, Greg Cook, Darryl Both and Darryl Argall struggled for most of their going down by 19 shots 15 to 34.

The four points for winning two rinks was enough to place Dimboola on top of the ladder narrowly in front of Nhill and Horsham City.

Horsham Golf will be the next opponent when they travel to Dimboola to take on the locals on Saturday.
