Another impressive performance from Tallygaroopna has extended its undefeated start to the Goulburn Valley Bowls Division second-tier season.

Once again it controlled a match from start to finish, seeing off Kyabram by a lazy 37 shots to make it nine wins in a row.

The Power did pinch one rink with Maree Boswell beating Brett Gunning 23-19, but it did little to stop Tallygaroopna which strolled to a 114-77 win, Mark Ryan again the most dominant skip with a 37-15 win.

Elsewhere in division two, Shepparton Golf had too much for Mooroopna in a 19-shot win.

The Golfers took three of the four rinks in a 101-82 win, with Wayne Gribble's 28-15 rink result leading the damage.

Tatura also came up with a big win, sweeping the rinks in a 115-82 triumph against Hill Top.

John Attwood and Brendon Boyd were in fine form, each winning their rink by 12 shots.

And Seymour enjoyed a nice solid win on its home deck, beating Shepparton Park by 15 shots.

Max Hammond had a big 33-18 result for Seymour, although Park's Diane Hands kept her side in it with a 32-21 win.

● Shepparton Golf shook division three up, rolling top side Rushworth by 15 shots.

In what could only be described as an epic day of bowls each side won two rinks, but the Golfers still had enough to take control, with huge victories for Kris Wright (40-12) and Frank Ivak (29-16) setting the side up.

Rushworth fought hard and had some big results of its own, with Jean Sprague (32-19) and Chris Garvey (30-17) registering some competition points.

Mooroopna Golf capitalised on Rushworth's slip, cutting the margin to top spot with a 90-79 win against East Shepparton.

Graeme Barber and Lynn Cain-Barber each recorded six-shot wins for Mooroopna.

Dookie had a solid 95-82 win against Mooroopna, while Shepparton Park put in work against Kyabram, winning by 67 shots.

● Division four action had Hill Top claim top spot on the ladder with a comprehensive win against Avenel.

The Hillbillies won 124-64, claiming all four rinks with Ken Parks’ 39-15 result the most lop-sided score.

They took top spot from Tallygaroopna, which lost 107-85 to Shepparton RSL.

The Rissoles only needed two rinks to get the job done, with Ray Sinclair and Robert Benney each winning by 13 shots.

East Shepparton also came up with a huge win, smacking Rushworth by 53 shots, while Shepparton Park (103-82 v Euroa) and Merrigum (106-81 v Murchison) each tasted victory.

● Seymour was division five's biggest winner, beating East Shepparton by 52 shots in a savage display.

Colbinabbin saw off Hill Top 74-51, Stanhope beat Violet Town 88-55, while Mooroopna Golf edged out Dookie 73-70 in game of the round.

● Euroa beat East Shepparton 64-56 in division six east and Shepparton Park and Seymour played out a 66-66 draw, while the western conference winners were Shepparton Golf, Stanhope and Tatura.
