Sunbury got an important road win against Werribee in Bowls Victoria Pennant, division 1, section 2 on Saturday.

Already cemented in the top four, a win would help them remain in the top two and keep clear of the chasing pack, including Werribee.

The two teams split the rinks two apiece, with Sunbury coming away with the win 79 (14)-65 (4).

Mark Cowan’s rink won 28-16 and Todd Trewarne’s rink won 25-10.

Jay Bye-Norris’ rink lost 20-11, while Carla Krizanic’s rink lost 19-15.

Sunbury’s David Glennon said it was good to get a win like that.

“Werribee’s synthetic green is always tough to play on, “ he said.

“To win two good rinks was good in the end.”

Sunbury remains in second spot, with MCC having a big win and further extending their lead at the top.

Sunbury is 10 points clear of third spot.

Four of Sunbury’s six sides got wins on Saturday, with five teams sitting in the top three at this point of the season.
