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.
