Healesville Bowls Club’s number one side travelled to play Ferntree Gully 2 on their slick carpet in gusty winds, which made conditions really tricky.
After being close at the break 40/41, Healesville fell away after half time to be comfortably beaten 74/101.
Healesville 2 played Yarra Glen 3 and took up where they had left off before the Christmas break and had another very good win to remain top of the ladder.

Ferntree Gully 2 (14/101) d Healesville 1 (4/74)
