Warburton bowlers prepare for action.

By Garry Lewis

Warburton Bowls Club had one team record a very successful win over the weekend, while its other two sides battled hard but could not claim victory.

On Saturday, Warburton 1 played Beaumaris 1 and secured another victory on the road, 88 to 64.

Rink scores were as follows: B.Woods 13/20, P.Woods 25/12, J.Brookes 29/12 and J.Van Der Zweep 21/20.

The side will look to continue its success at home against Mulgrave 1 on 23 November.

Warburton 2 played Croydon 4 at home in extremely damp and cold conditions.

Croydon handled the conditions better to win 82 to 68.

Rink scores were: P.Summers 16/16, G.Wynd 23/15, M.Reynolds 10/29 and N.Whelan 19/22.

They play Heathmont 5 away in a fortnight.

Warburton 3 (6-a-side) travelled to Fitzroy/Victoria 4 and tried extremely hard before going down 27 to 50.

Rink scores were: M.Van Meurs 19/20 and N.Donohue 8/30.

They play Glen Waverley 5 away in a fortnight.

Several members from the club will travel to Shepparton area for the Victoria Open Championships next week, so there will be no pennant games.

The club’s Tuesday midweek team will face Upwey-Tecoma 1 away this week following a break last week due to Cup Day, while the Wednesday Night Barefoot Bowls Competition is set to commence this week, weather depending.
