Warburton Bowls Club’s number one side played the top side Mentone 1 at home.
The Burras were beaten 68 to 103 in very hot conditions.
Rink scores were J. Van der Zweep 26/21, J. Brookes 15/19, A. Holmes 9/44 and S. Lee-Tet 18/19.
Despite the overall scores, Warburton 1 was quite competitive apart from one rink.
It will next play Burden Park 1 away in another challenging match.
Warburton 2 played Croydon 3 away and was soundly defeated 48 to 122.
Rink scores were P. Summers 6/36, R. McKail 16/28, N. Whelan 15/26 and B. Hall 11/32.
The side is looking forward to re-grouping this week at home against Eastwood Golf 1.
The Mid-Week Tuesday Pennant team played Chirnside Park 2 away and in another very tight finish, the Burras won by three shots, 61 to 58, to further consolidate second position on the ladder.
Rink scores were G. Walsh 17/22, R. McKail 23/17 and S. Lord 21/19.
The Burras will play the top side, Monbulk 1, at home this week in a very challenging game.
The Wednesday Night Barefoot Bowls Triples Competition was cancelled last Wednesday due to the severe weather forecast.
Club members are reminded to keep the Intra Club Competition games moving along.
They all need to be completed by the end of February.
