SUCCESS: Gil Tudball and his Avenue team landed a one-shot win.
Avenue clinched an important one-shot victory over league leaders City Oval in Monday’s round of the division one midweek pennant bowls competition.
The Bacchus Marsh-based club drew two of the rink battles, but prevailed in the other by a solitary shot to score the overall 72-71 success at home.
There was no movement of ladder positions on Monday as Buninyong, Midlands Golf, Central Wendouree and Creswick all prevailed.
Those results mean Buninyong holds onto fourth spot on the ladder by three points over the Bears in fifth.
Just two home and away rounds remain before finals get underway on Monday, March 4.
