BDBD Pennant has a new leader with Victoria moving to top spot

A vital win for Victoria’s Premier Bowls team has sent it to the top of the ladder and given Ballarat Memorial Sports a wake-up call heading into the final weeks of the Ballarat District Bowling Division premier competition.

The 14-2 victory came on the back of a stunning comeback from Noel Verlinden’s Team 1, which was 8-0 down after just two ends. The team managed to turn that around to pull away to a strong win 28-17 win.

With Team 3, skippered by Wayne Lynch also pulling away to a strong 25-11 win, it was a big day Victoria with a 70-46 shot win.

Verlinden said it was a day that would give the side a lot of confidence going forward. “Somehow we managed to turn my rink around,” he said.

“It’s been a good four weeks in a row, and has really given us some momentum.”
