Striving to park themselves in top four

Shepparton Park desperately wants a Goulburn Valley Bowls District finals spot.

The Parkers currently occupy fifth position, but are within striking distance of the top four after dominating Seymour.

Playing coach Mark Ryan set the tone for his side in the 18-124 to 0-75 blitz of their opposition at home at Kialla Park.

Along with Darren Kelly, Ernie Salvemini and Dave Hardie, his rink was 21 shots ahead by the end of the day.

But it was well and truly more than a one-rink show as Jarryd Tinning was equally as brilliant.

With Kristoffer Fergus, Trevor Serafini and Josh Warren supporting him, Tinning was well and truly on top for the match.

Denis Smyth and Jeff Anselmi also claimed rink victories and the Parkers are now just one point off Nagambie in fourth position and Ryan’s side boasts a significantly better shot difference after Saturday’s win.

The Lakers had their chances to defeat Kyabram, but ultimately fell short, 15-102 to 3-87.

Two of the most brilliant skips in the league went head-to-head with Paul Nichols coming out on top against David Cartwright.

But Greg Shilling was there to back up Cartwright, as Shilling teamed with George Thornley, Kelvin Beacon and Willis Mackrell for a brilliant 16-shot win against young Jack Spencer.

Philip Denham took his rink against Daniel Nichols by five shots, while Rob George and Brett Spargo were unable to be separated.

Shepparton Golf atoned for its poor performance against Kyabram in round nine by cruising past Stanhope.

With Stanhope sitting on the bottom of the ladder, Golf showed no mercy in the 16-112 to 2-73 thrashing.

Golf’s John Stokes was phenomenal, taking a 20-shot victory against Greg Fitzpatrick.

David Daws again displayed the strength of each of Golf’s skips as he trounced Robert Armstrong 34-14.

Playing coach Brad Orr claimed his rink, while a diligent Shane Walsh was the only Stanhope skip to experience success.
