Central Wendouree suffers another loss in midweek pennant bowls

After going through the opening five rounds of the division one midweek pennant bowls season unbeaten, Central Wendouree has suffered its second defeat in succession.

City Oval beat the Bears last week and it was Sebastopol’s turn to inflict defeat on Monday afternoon.

The Kookaburras won two of the three rink battles on the day to clinch a nine-shot win overall.

Sebastopol skippers Jenny Harman and Gayle Andrew both won rinks, while Central Wendouree’s Col Johnson prevailed in the other match-up.

In the end, the Kookaburras won 59-50.

Following the success, Sebastopol climbed to fourth on the Ballarat District Bowls Division ladder.

City Oval has broken 18 points clear at the top after beating Avenue by 14 shots on Monday.

The defeat sent the Avenue outfit from fourth spot on the ladder to seventh.

Creswick has jumped to second, a spot above Central Wendouree, following its triumph in the fixture against Smeaton.

The Wickers proved far too good, winning by 35 shots away from home.

In other matches, Buninyong landed a huge 100-24 win against Ballarat Memorial Sports and Daylesford registered a narrow three-shot victory over Midlands Golf.

There will be no midweek pennant next Monday due to the Victorian Open, which is being played in the Shepparton region.
