Sunbury suffered a shock loss to Glenroy in Bowls Victoria pennant, division 1, section 2.

Hoping to gain some momentum after a good win the previous week, Sunbury was upset on its home green.

While it was a close match all day, Sunbury came away with just two points in the 91 (16)-78 (2) loss.

Sunbury’s David Glennon said it was a disappointing result.

“To get only two points was disappointing,” he said.

“Glenroy has been pretty strong over the years and always a tough nut to crack, but it was a game we had expected to win, especially at home.”

Carla Krizanic skipped the only winning rink, winning 24-19.

Jay Bye-Norris’ rink lost 22-18 and Todd Trewarne’s rink lost 25-23.  Mark Cowan’s rink had a big loss, 25-13.

Glennon said Peter White, who was in Krizanic’s rink, was the standout in the loss.

Despite the loss, Sunbury remains in second spot. Top side MCC also suffered a loss.

Glennon said they were in a good position after six rounds.

“It’s a nice position and it was only a minor blip on the season.

Overall it’s a good position to be in.”

It was a good weekend for the club overall, with four of its six sides getting wins.

The second side had a 98 (18)-52 (0) win against Werribee 3. Derek Houghton’s rink had a day out, winning 30-5.

Bowls competitions across the state have a bye this weekend, with the Vic Open being held.
