Seeing past the sun: Avenel's David Furletti makes sure there will be no glare as he prepares to bowl.

Locked and loaded: East Shepparton's Bill Tyers gets his preparation right.

Sussing out the opposition: Avenel's Noel Slater takes in the head.

Strong showing: Avenel's Jenny Furletti was vital in the win.

Ready to Rowl: East Shepparton's Maurie Rowlands sends yet another delivery down the green.

Tatura narrowly defeated the might of Shepparton Park, but the Parkers remain on top of the division two table.

Rinks were shared across the match as Tatura’s John Attwood took matters into his own hands.

The gun skip outclassed Paul Becroft by 16 shots as Darryn Carpenter, Rodney Kirby and Peter Cohen all provided plenty of support.

Shepparton Park’s Ray Hill nearly pulled off a win just as large in his rink, too strong for Jason Carter by 13 shots.

But with Terry Gale defeating Ross Higgins, Tatura enjoyed the 14-95 to 4-90 upset.

Shepparton Golf prevailed in a battle against Tallygaroopna as the two top four sides sized each other up in preparation for finals.

Peter Fairgrieve tussled with Garry Murphy in one of the most entertaining rinks of the day, with Fairgrieve the victor by eight shots.

Golf’s Rob Betson, Wayne Gribble and Roy Brown all claimed their rinks to take a clean sweep of the match, 18-119 to 0-89.

Mooroopna fell against Kyabram as top midweek bowler Jenni Dixon skipped for her team.

She breezed past Russell Cooper by 20 shots.

Although Mooroopna’s Ian Ponting and Alan Donaldson took some valuable points in their rinks, Kyabram got the job done 14-97 to 4-95.

Shepparton RSL remains without a win, with Euroa sizeable victors, 16-112 to 2-71.

Dennis Newby was the highlight of the Rissoles’ day with a four-shot win.

But with Bill O’Connor, Ken Sutcliffe and Tony Kingma all in blistering form, Shepparton RSL had little chance.

Division three action had Shepparton Park move into the top four at the expense of East Shepparton.

The Parkers were worthy of their move into finals contention after overcoming Rushworth 16-105 to 2-81.

The rinks of Ray Phillips, Vince Page and Rob Matthews made their presence felt in the win.

Mooroopna Golf nudged past East Shepparton to enjoy a six-shot victory.

Every rink was tight, but none more so than Graeme McIntyre’s one-shot win against East’s Alan Taylor.

Shepparton Golf eased its way past Euroa with Kris Wright at the forefront as her side prevailed by an impressive 48 shots.

Avenel remains within finals reach in division four having dismissed East Shepparton at its Zurcas Lane greens.

The Swans claimed three rinks in the 16-109 to 2-74 win and another late victory would put the fifth-placed side well into the finals mix.

Merrigum took the spoils against Dookie by just five shots in an enticing match-up.

James Arthur took charge for Merrigum, offsetting the good work Gerald Ryan had done for Dookie.

Kyabram ran out a big winner against Shepparton RSL, while Shepparton Park was too strong for Murchison.

Shepparton Golf, Seymour and Violet Town all enjoyed hard-fought wins in division five red, while division five blue victors were Stanhope, Tallygaroopna and Mooroopna.

Division six winners were Kyabram, Shepparton Golf, Avenel and Stanhope.
