 In a thrilling finish against Pakenham 1 at home, Warburton Bowls Club’s number one side came from behind to win 83 to 82.

It came down to the last end of the game.

Warburton needed three shots to win and S. Lee-Tet’s rink did just that.

Rink scores were J. Van Der Zweep 12/36, S. Lee-Tet 25/16, A. Holmes 24/11 and J. Brookes 22/19.

The side will play Mulgrave CC 1 away this week as it looks to continue its steady improvement across all rinks.

Rink scores were B. Hall 17/22, P. Summers 13/17, T. Appleton 14/20 and N. Whelan 10/29.

The side plays Donvale 2 at home this week as it looks to improve on its starts to avoid playing catch-up.

The Mid-Week Tuesday Pennant team played Boronia 1 at home before the break and continued on its winning way, 70 to 40.

Rinks scores were G. Walsh 27/13, R. McKail 20/14 and S. Lord 23/13.
