BROADFORD Bowling Club continues to find its feet in the Highlands Saturday Pennant, recording a loss and win in its division one and two side’s matches respectively in round five.
Up against ladder leaders Macedon, Broadford Bowling Club president Jim Hinchcliffe said it was a great win by the division two side, which had only one rink fall to the visitors, securing a 69 to 53 shot win.
Rink two collected Broadford’s best score for the day, winning 33 shots to 12, while rink one were 23 to 16 shot victors. Rink three, which chased all day, just couldn’t do enough to catch its opponents, going down 25 shots to 13.
“We’ve now had two really good weeks in a row and things are going really well in the second division,” he said.
Division one played close games, with none of the three rinks losing by more than eight shots.
Rink two had a closet margin against its opponents in Kyneton losing 22 to 16 shots. Rinks one and three weren’t far behind, falling to 24 to 16 shots and 25 to 18 shots respectively, for an overall team deficit, 71 to 50.
Hinchcliffe said he was pleased with the way the club was settling into the Highlands competition, and looked forward to what was approaching in the rest of the season.
“We’re competitive but just not clicking yet. We might have to make a few changes to our players to start seeing some more results,” he said.
“There are still lots of clubs that we haven’t played yet and face those challenges.
“The green was full and it was good to see so much activity both from the players and from those attending.”
Kilmore were less successful, with all three of its sides suffering defeats.
Division one were handed a 69 to 50 shot loss to the hands of Trentham, division two fell short 63 to 58 shots to Kyneton Golf, while division three suffered Kilmore’s biggest loss, 72 to 50 to Romsey.
Broadford and Kilmore’s division one sides will face off each other this weekend in Kilmore, while Broadford’s division two will travel to Kyneton, Kilmore’s division two will host Gisborne and Kilmore’s division three to travel to Diggers Rest.
