Teams face old foes in Saturday pennant

Andy Brumby of Highland Tartan takes a swing during a hard fought game with Dunolly Blue.

Dunolly Blue got the ultimate revenge over Highland Tartan at the weekend, snagging a two-point win in round seven of Saturday pennant bowls.

Dunolly claimed grand final victory over the Tartans last season, but Highland got one back in round two of the current season, defeating the Blues by 19 points.

Returning to play after a week off due to the Victoria Open, Dunolly evened the score and also made headway to take to the top of the division one ladder.

Barry Cann gave Dunolly a good push with a 10-shot win over Brian Daly, but Alan Weir’s 19-32 loss put Highland out in front by three shots overall.

Greg Dobbin brought it home for Dunolly, defeating Gary Coburn by 25 to contribute heavily to an overall victory of 70-68.

Dunolly now holds the first place position on the division ladder by a single premiership point, just ahead of Highland Tartan with round eight to be played this Saturday.

Talbot Gold claimed the biggest win of the division with an 86-62 defeat of Avoca Red.

Peter Fletcher got Talbot out in front early with a 40-15 defeat, followed by Paul Radstock who just got one up on George Brown with a four-shot victory.
