Sunbury enters the finals on the back of a disappointing performance in the final round of the Bowls Victoria division 1, section 2.

With a finals spot already sealed, Sunbury didn’t have much to play for against Werribee, which needed a win to have any chance of playing finals.

Werribee played like a team on a mission, winning 84 (16)-63 (2), and with Altona Sports suffering a big loss, was able to sneak into fourth.

Lee Wesley was the only winning skip for Sunbury, winning 19-13.

Sunbury’s David Glennon said the side didn’t need to win at all costs yesterday and it showed on the scoreboard.

“It would have been nice to go into the finals on a winning momentum,” he said.

“But we had achieved what we wanted to, getting into the top four and now hopefully get a shot at the title.”

Sunbury will face MCC in a semi-final on Saturday, with the winner to face Glenroy or Werribee in the grand final the following day.

MCC won both games between the sides this year, including one at Sunbury which the home team should have won. Four of Sunbury’s six teams will play finals.

Glennon said they were hoping to turn around the club’s poor record in finals and get all four teams through to grand finals.
